    Fakes have horrible writing speeds, they last less and some even don't hold their own capacity. Yours is fake since the magic gate is unknown.

    i bought 2 fake ms from ebay very cheap.
    of course i didn't know they were fake at the time until someone told me.
    luckily, i sold them back on ebay even made some profit..

    Great lol, now someone else will have that problem. But it's a good idea. (No offence:) American and UK and etc users are more trusted then some other places so people will buy thinking it's real. Could even be sold for full price... Wow :p
