Newly Bought Sandisk SSD Plus fake?

I bought 2 Sandisk SSD Plus on an online shop (Lazada). I am not sure if I bought a legit or fake ones. Some of my findings:

  1. The package has a typographical error “Replace” is spelled Replacw.

  2. I checked both of the serial numbers on the back of the 2 SSD which are different from the Serial numbers inside the Hard Disk Sentinel app.

This is the serial number inside the Hard disk sentinel app 500**218 3F
Then the serial number on the back is 231
872

  1. I also have tested the Crystal Disk Mark and the result was good that made me more confused if it is a legit Sandisk SSD:

  1. When transferring files to it (E.g Copying GTA 5 from HDD to the SSD)

I got 100% active time and an average response time of 1000 to 2000ms. My HDD is just on 5% active time and a 2.5MS response time.

  1. It made my computer Slow Down like it makes the file manager freeze.
