Verification Techniques for Memories of Eight Major Brands
 
Verification Method for Kingston Memory:

Kingston memory has become the currently most trusted memory brand by consumers in domestic market after a short period of time since it entered domestic market, thanks to its high quality performance and excellent after-sales service. There is a Chinese saying that a big tree tends to cause more winds. It is exactly due to its excellent performance in the market in recent years, Kingston is liked by some unlawful businessmen and fake products therefore mix into the market. However, besides fake product, Kingston has several legal resellers, and each reseller has a different label. Some resellers claim only their products are real products out of competition purpose.

There are currently 3 China chief agents of Kingston memory in Shenzhen market, being Joint Harvest, Dragon King and Letsure respectively. The labels of Joint Harvest and Letsure are usually white, but the labels of Dragon King are blue and yellow.

You should be aware that fake Kingston memory has appeared in the market, which has no fixed chip, henceforward the chips of every batch of memories are different, real or fake memory can not be differentiated by chip, but the printed circuit board of Kingston memory is invariable, and has many features. All Kingston memories in domestic market have memory anti-fake numbers made with special manufacturing process. This anti-fake measure identifies the memory to be real or fake by comparing whether the 4-digit number in memory anti-fake label is consistent with the 4-digit number in the memory number ironed on the memory’s printed circuit board with special manufacturing process. The greatest advantage of employing this anti-fake measure is that if fake producers do not have professional memory manufacturing level, making fake products will be very hard. Therefore fighting fake products with this method is bound to give those fake producers a heaviest blow. In addition, the PCB circuits of Kingston memory are very refined, much like vacuum. Fake memory printed circuit board in the market today is very much like Apacer printed circuit board.

① Visual Inspection Method:
A. You can verify whether it is a real Kingston memory module by inspecting whether the 4-digit number in the printed circuit board and the 4-digit number in the module are consistent.
B. You can see the numbers of “5121” in the printed circuit board and the module. The same 4-digit serial numbers appear twice. The number “5121” appearing at the edge of the printed circuit board should be consistent with the number “5121” printed in white Kingston label. “5121” is only a sample number, and we will use different 4-digit number to represent different memory products.
C. The same 4-digit serial numbers appear twice. The number “5121” appearing at the edge of the printed circuit board should be consistent with the number “5121” printed in white Kingston label.

② Verify Online in One Minute:
Please select fully identical variable color anti-fake label or white label with the label in your memory module:
In addition, call 800 phone number or visit the global enquiry website www.kingston.COM/china/verifyreal to verify it is fake or not. You need only to submit relevant memory information to the said website, which will help you to identify in no time whether the Kingston memory you have bought is fake or not.

● Verification Method for KingMax Memory:

There are pretty many fake KingMax memories in today’s market, however they are much easier to identify compared with Kingston memories. This is because KingMax employs Guangong Red Core, a special chip anti-fake technology. The “Guangong Red Core” anti-fake technology released by KingMax sets a red coding particle employing Kingmax’s global proprietary patented Tiny BGA package technology at the position of 4th particle of the front side of the printed circuit board. Besides, chip for special application has an ID CODE (global unified identification code), which makes every memory to be unique. Due to such uniqueness, fake memories are very few.

Besides, the TingBGA colored package technology employed in KingMax memory is a KingMax proprietary patented technology. The application of TingBGA in memory makes the duplication of such product out of the question. It is learned that for BGA package technology alone, fake producers will have to invest 100 million RMB to cut into this market. This is why fake producers are scared away. Moreover, KingMax further provides 800 toll-free phone to enquire and verify, henceforward we can avoid fake memories pretty easily as long as we are sure of the package and the appearance of KingMax memories.
 
● Verification Method for Hyundai Memory (Compatible Memory):

Hyundai’s compatible memory should be the No. 1 memory in term of shipment volume in today’s market. Although in quality, compatible memory is much inferior to brand memory, it wins the appreciation of many consumers with its low price. The amount of Hyundai’s fake memories beat others in the market. As a matter of fact, Hyundai’s compatible memory refers to any compatible memory using Hyundai chip rather than a brand. However, a survey indicates that 80% to 90% Hyundai’s compatible memories in today’s market do not use Hyundai chip, some of them are even grinded out from household workshops. Therefore, if you have to choose Hyundai’s compatible memory because of limited budget, think twice before you leap.

Because the shipment volume of Hyundai’s compatible memory is so big, it is hard to have a unified real or fake verification standard, and we have no choice but to verify from chip. First of all, real Hyundai’s memory is pasted with original plant label while fake memory is pasted with common paster. Real Hyundai’s memory chips are arranged in an entire circuit without gaps while fake chips are arranged with gaps. Real Hyundai memory chip has a round concave groove in the rear side while fake Hyundai memory chip has 3 round signs in linear arrangement in rear side. Real Hyundai’s memory chip has a round concave groove in the left lower corner and a row of dark printed characters in the right lower corner, but fake chip does not have these features. Real Hyundai’s memory chip has clear character print but fake memory chip doesn’t or even has burr. This can be identified if you pay enough attention when you buy.

● Verification Method for Hyundai Memory (Original Plant Memory):

Hynix original plant memory is our so-called Hyundai original plant memory, which is not frequently found in the market, but this does not prevent unlawful businessmen from selling Hyundai compatible memory as original plant memory. I will show you the differences of real and fake original plant Hyundai memories.

Let’s take a look at the features of original plant memory, which uses wide board design rather than conventional memory printed circuit board of compatible memory. Original plant printed circuit board has obvious “Hyundai Korea” mark while fake product does not. In real product, large area copper coating design is used in the rear side of the memory, circuit wirings are smooth, and there are certain distances between various circuits, while fake memory uses the most common base board, capacitors and resistors are few and far between. Moreover, the print in memory particles is very clear. This can be verified by finger touching or visual inspection. Characters in fake original plant memory are printed and have apparent difference in finger touching. In addition, real product indicates producer and origin of place by the side of SPD, while fake product usually does not.


● Verification Method for Apacer Memory:

Apacer does not have many users in memory market, and therefore fake memories are much less founded, but this does not mean they don’t exist. We can very easily tell real Apacer memories from fake ones from the anti-fake guidance published by Apacer Electronics.

Verification Method:
1. Real product is pasted with a bar code paster of Apacer trademark
2.The circuit board of the memory module is printed with Apacer trademark and board number.
3. The rear side of the memory module is pasted with anti-fake label, and you can verify it real or fake by removing the coating and check its serial number in a specified website. Besides, the package also provides diversified colors and an easy-to-remove label attached with digital code. The coding principle is changed irregularly. All these leave fake producers no opportunities at all.


● Verification Method for Adata Memory:

Adata “purple and red” series memory has conquered multitude of consumers with its excellent performance and low price. Although it has prevented fake products with its unique appearance and ultra-low price, but a batch of smuggled Adata memories have appeared in the market. Although the quality of smuggled product is as good as that of real product, its high end real product “red dragon” offers 5 years warranty and low end real product “purple and red” offers 3 years warranty, while smuggled product does not have such service. In case something goes wrong, users need to pay some expenses themselves.

Fortunately, Adata smuggled memory can be easily differentiated from real memory, you need only to check if the anti-fake label of Longjun Technologies, the chief agent of Adata in China, is pasted in the memory. This CRL has been particularly made for China mainland. If there is no CRL logo, the memory is definitely a smuggled product.


● Verification Method for Elixir Memory:

Nanya Technologies is a Taiwan company, whose Elixir brand memory is a representative of emerging generation memory in the market. Although not as good as traditional major brand like Kingston, there are still a lot of fake “Elixir” memories in the market.

As a matter of fact, “Elixir” memory is very simple to verify, Nanya Technologies has joined hands with “Xunyi International”, its reseller in China, to use laser anti-fake label and “real entity anti-fake” philosophy comprehensively. Users can verify “Elixir” memory to be real or fake by inspecting the laser anti-fake label and the real entity anti-fake of “Elixir” memory at any time and place, therefore effectively protect his legal interest. In the mean time, “Elixir” memory has comprehensively used new and nicer packages, which makes the difference with fake products more obvious. The figure above shows four obvious marks to differentiate fake products.


● Verification Method for KingBox Memory:

KingBox is a memory brand of Taiwan-based Weihe Technologies Co., Ltd, although it has not been in the memory market for long, it has won pretty good reputation. Therefore, some evildoers want to take advantage of it.

However, real KingBox product is very easy to identify, it has used a color scheme featured by deep blue in one side and purple in the other side. Even the front nameplate uses such color scheme too. KingBox is the sole brand to use such color scheme in the market. The memory has metal “KingBox” characters in its rear side and some minute metal “KingBox” characters in front side. Moreover, real KingBox has a warranty card, but fake one does not. Because the most attractive part of KingBox is its great after-sales service commitment: three years replacement warranty and life long repair warranty. As long as it is not artificially damaged, the replacement or repair will be free! Henceforward, we have to be careful so as not to buy fake products.
