You get what you pay for (magical hard disk)

 

A 500GB external hard drive purchased in China for an unbelievably low price doesn't work as it is supposed to. I LOL when I saw the internal parts.

"You can't get there from here"

If not "open talk".......

I guess you were supposed to put it in the "500GB external hard drive purchased in China for an unbelievably low price doesn't work as it is supposed to" forum. smile

Nah, I think this should have been posted in the Magellan forum. The chinese hard drive doesn't work and neither do Magellans.

I kid, I kid.

As General McAuliffe said

NUTS!

It actually looks pretty good until you open it.

It actually looks pretty good until you open it. How much did it cost. was it cheaper then purchasing the flash drive here in USA, if so you are ahead of the game.

The should have put a floppy in there

I don't think anyone would be ahead with a 128 MB flash drive. You probaby could not even give away one of those. Almost like having a floppy disk in there. smile

Ditto!

I'm sure Samsung will be thrilled with the PR on this one. rolleyes

This is also what happens when you outsource. It's getting hard to find anything made in North America these days.

You do realize this isn't a Samsung item right?

Yes, I do realize that, but it also has their name on it. People tend to associate without any fact-finding though.

that's progress

Whatever you say it is definitely progress. In old days this sort of people was buying Brooklyn Bridge or Statue of Liberty. But since then technology make such great leap that they switched to electronics.

I think some thinks and some people never change, regardless of century we are living in. They are hell bend to make deal of their life wink

Amazing

Okay, that's really funny. The two large nuts serve to both space the 128 MB flash chip properly and add some weight so it feels more believable. I would only be more amused if there was a little motor to spin up or a fan to create airflow to better simulate an actual hard drive. But there really is no need for scammers to create a farce that elaborate because clearly they were able to move some without those details.

very good use of technical

very good use of technical skills to rip off the unsuspecting customer. What a joke.

Wow

Wow. That's really all I can think of. Wow.
