Note: H2testw 1.4 is excellent for testing the true capacity of flash memory chips. Do not accept any “Graphic Images” for H2testw 1.4 in a sellers listing as proof. TechReporters asked the FixFakeFlash and FlashChipTech groups why.

Both InspectorTech and TechChips said:

H2testw 1.4 is well suited to test the true capacity of flash memory chips. This applies to sellers who should test their merchandise prior to listing a model, followed by periodic random checks coming from any supplier. It also applies to any buyer who has purchased an mp player, memory card or usb flash drive. H2testw is designed to find out what is wrong and report on it. When all is well, the report results will be minimal – what every tester hopes to see.

However, no buyer should accept any graphic image placed in a listing describing the test results. The public may wish to know why. Unfortunately we can not reveal why – what we know from various inspections of listing on eBay that have used test result images over the last six months. This also applies to any test results from any software.

Statements by a seller having tested with H2testw are fine. Buyers should make sure that if they wish to purchase from an eBay seller making a claim of testing, that they print the listing to disk and hold the seller to his or her claim. It can add reassurance and validity, but never buy based on the presentation of a graphic image for H2testw!
