    I snickered. I think that this is a clever scheme. Though a bit dishonest.

    Steps on scamming people:

    1st: grab a case and get some letters to write Samsung
    2nd: grab 2 metal pieces with some weight
    3rd: get a 128mb pen and put it on the usb part of the case
    4th: put the 2 metal pieces to give some wait to the case
    5th: create a website and announce the product as a 500GB hard-drive
    6th: PROFIT!


    isnt that genius? we gotta give credits to those chinese guys who thinks on this tactics xD

    Actually...It's both.
    If I realized somebody had sold me this piece of shit I would kick his teeth in...and then laugh about the brilliance of the scam.

    Saw this awhile ago on Kotaku [​IMG]

    Still amazed at how it works.. Apparently, when it's (the 128MB drive) full, it will rewrite over the existing files without notifying the user and when its plugged into a computer, it will still read as 500GB of storage or something..

    Genius

    128MB? that's still too much.

    Scammers should put inside an usb stick that sends the data to /dev/null [​IMG]

    That's why you don't buy hard drives direct from China via some random electronics website.
