I ordered a couple of these cheap 1TB cards off Aliexpress for S&G's, knowing full well they were fake. They test ok and format OK under Windows 11.
I ran ValiDrive on one, as follows:

Each test run shows different "No Storage" blocks, between 3 and 5 blocks. Validated drive size changes every test.
I copied almost 1TB of test files from Windows 11 to the card, no errors. Of course none of the files will open.
I can see someone who doesn't know any better still getting fooled by these results.

Can you confirm the suspected fakeness with H2Test or FakeFlashTest for example?

Never mind, I think this confirms that: "I copied almost 1TB of test files from Windows 11 to the card, no errors. Of course none of the files will open."
