Because it’s fake!
Avoid especially since it’s coming from China
They're spoofed sticks. Or someone has made a typo and they're 2GB sticks.
Looking for 64-128gb cheap stick with usb3.0 speeds.

Anyone got a good source ? I have prime

They are spoofed USB. Once you plug it in, it will state 2TB but will only write around 4-8GB which will be the true value.
8Mb/second max speed... by my rough maths that would take about 3 days (72 hours) to completely fill. And that's if it didn't throw errors a long time before it got there.

I can't think of any data that I would trust to put on there.
I had a promotional 16GB from "H&C" turned out to be 64MB.

Hopefully their bluetooth speakers are better.
Check YouTube linus did a vid on these fake usb sticks
i bought one of these ages ago, knowing its fake, but to see how fake they are.

They ARE fake.
Fake.. as a very fake thing.

Woo both so cheap. Dam good price for 64gb

What would you go for ?
How about buying a cheap Ssd for under 30 pounds and putting in an external enclosure?! Guess a good usb 3.0 enclosure is 10-15 pounds ?! Would you do that over a usb memory stick ?

You can get a decent USB 3.0 enclosure for like £3 now, you'll get a few hundred mb/s depending on the ssd. I've got like 4 or 5 cheap enclosures now and all work great.

the devices will show up as the advertised capacity. but if you try to fill them up, at some lower boundary, eg 32gb, you get write errors. So, fake, like McDonalds fries are fake potatoes !
