It is becoming very difficult to purchase a name brand item because of all those selling fake products on Amazon. Several times lately I attempted to purchase components or supplies such as printer ink, laptop batteries, laptop power supplies etc. only to find it impossible to distinguish the alternate from the real thing. I purchased a power supply for a Toshiba laptop that was listed as the OE Toshiba. When it came it even had a decal on it like the original from Toshiba. After a few weeks it stopped working. It was then that I learned it was a fake and not Toshiba. If Amazon allows this to continue many customers will buy elsewhere.
