2TB External Hard Drive

What is this BS? Apparently this is a fraudulent product … why is this on Woot?

Because according to the specs it’s USB-2? That would take all day to fill up.

The aspect is that spinning hard drives don’t come in such a form factor and solid state NAND is nowhere near this cheap for the capacity, even for reject grade chips.

(Note that I am not staff. I just volunteer to help out on the forums.)

Pretty brisk sales for phony gear. That’s silly cheap. A touch cheaper at Amazon actually, from what I can tell. Guessing it’s a moderate sized flash drive (like 16-64GB) crammed into a goofy enclosure. At that price, I would consider building a USB RAID, heh.

I guess more accurately one of these is probably a clone of the other. The other one was found out as a 16GB drive glued into an enclosure. https://www.amazon.com/External-Drive-Portable-Type-C-Laptop/dp/B097478483/ref=asc_df_B097478483/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=532535399205&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6849938791907263973&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9009703&hvtargid=pla-1393997637355&th=1#customerReviews
