Too cheap to be a real 64GB Kingston – it must be counterfeit

with 2 comments


This simply has to be a counterfeit, xuexue698 could not buy genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 drives for this price wholesale let alone sell them on ebay for this price. Buyers – check the serial number with Kingston. You can test to discover the true capacity with the free program h2testw.

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

  2. Has anyone not noticed how dodgy the first feedback is?

    This seller starts with a 30 day listing and gets a positive feedback in less than a day. I don’t think so. Seems very suspicious to me.

    There is absolutely no way that drive could have been posted from China and arrived that quickly in the UK.

    I mean, 0 feedback and no percentage rating does not look as good as at least 1 positive feedback and 100% rating, does it?

    How convenient this has been for the seller.

    Has anyone got in touch with the buyer to verify and test the drive?

    All the way from China in a flash!
