How to distinguish genuine Kingston memory from fake?
Due to outstanding quality of Kingston memory, it has a very good reputation among general consumers, and shipment volume is relatively large. Therefore, many counterfeiters have targeted Kingston memory, causing counterfeit Kingston memory to flood market. I believe that after reading this article, friends will easily be able to identify fake Kingston memory.
The image above shows fake Kingston memory. Friends should know that left label of Kingston real memory uses "color changing" anti-counterfeiting technology, and color of label will change when viewing angle changes. changed. In second picture, laying memory module on its side, it turns out that label of this fake memory can also change color. Thus, "color change" anti-counterfeiting technology has failed.
The image above shows genuine Kingston memory using state-of-the-art D43 chip, which has always been known for its outstanding overclocking potential. Next, we will teach you how to identify fake Kingston memory by comparing these two memory cards.
In picture above, top one is incorrect and bottom one is correct. Try to compare and find difference first.
Comparison of labels on left side of product: top one is false and bottom one is true.
There are three main differences:
1. The small circle in upper right corner of Kingston logo has an R in middle. The circle and letters on counterfeit memory card are relatively large and easily visible to naked eye. on a real flash drive and characters are relatively small, they are difficult to see with naked eye.
2. For a counterfeit memory card, distance between code "1642655-0347954" in middle of label and symbol "ASSY IN CHINA(1)" below is compared to distance between code "9905193-015.A00" above, much wider. For real memory cards, intervals between three lines "9905192-012.A00", "1868646-1830975" and "ASSY IN CHINA(1)" are same.
3. Counterfeit memory card, code "1642655-0347954" in middle of label, compared to subsequent character "ASSY IN CHINA (1)", stroke of font is clearly much thinner; real memory card. The fonts "1868646-1830975" and "ASSY IN CHINA(1)" have same stroke weight.
Comparison of memory particles, on right is true, on left is false.
Although they are not same memory granules, you can clearly see that real memory granules on right have a clear handwriting, and upon closer inspection, there is a feeling of being cut with a knife. The font size and arrangement of letters have been changed. pretty neat; polished fake memory particles, handwriting is blurred, color of printed handwriting is now dark, then light, font size and arrangement of letters are also relatively uneven. If you touch it with your hand, fake memory particles will appear rough to you because they have been polished, while real memory particles will be smoother.
The comparison is bottom, top right is correct, bottom left is wrong.
Take a close look at bottom of memory chips. Real memory cards use a large number of high quality microchip capacitors and resistors to ensure stability and security of memory cards, while fake memory cards retain only few key parts and quite a few empty solder joints. It really is "saving what can be saved".
The comparison between real and fake Kingston memory cards is mainly based on points above. Although there are different types of counterfeit Kingston memory cards, they are always same. You can compare them carefully. You definitely won't buy counterfeit memory cards.
