We suspect this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drive listed by a new ebay member in the UK will prove to be counterfeit and fake capacity. In the listing the seller states:

I am a new seller on ebay and want to make a name for myself.

Well the seller is certainly likely to a name for himself by selling items like this – but we don’t think it is the kind of name the seller is hoping for! If this item is genuine (which we don’t think it is) the buyer should be able to check the serial number with Kingston.

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.
