We suspect this Kingston flash drive sold on ebay is counterfeit

We suspect that this 16GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 may well be counterfeit – would you auction something new that is worth over £100 with a start price lower than you paid? No? Neither would we. If we are wrong the seller made a loss on this and also on the 128GB model sold. Buyers can check the serial number with Kingston to find out whether the item is genuine – we think we know the answer.

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.
