Are these Kingston flash drives genuine or counterfeit?

UK seller tof3k is selling these 16GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives at surprisingly low prices. This makes us question whether these are genuine 16GB Kingston or fake capacity counterfeits produced by fraudsters in China. We advise anyone who purchased one of these to check with Kingston or test the flash drive with h2testw to ensure that it is a functional 16GB flash drive.

As usual 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.
