Seller registered in Hong Kong lists fictional 32GB Kingston flash

leave a comment »


This supposedly 32GB Kingston flash drive listed by saerfr – an ebay seller registered in Hong Kong – does not seem to exist! We can see no trace of it on the Kingston web site so we are fairly certain that this is counterfeit and fake capacity.

We urge all buyers (and sellers) of flash memory items to educate themselves about what is really available and the true cost of such items! In the case of brand name items such as Kingston and Sony you can check your item on their websites. For generic flash memory (non-branded or unfamiliar brands) we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
