with 2 comments


Is this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drive offered at auction on ebay Australia by superstarzeng2009 genuine or counterfeit? The buyer can check the serial number with Kingston to find out.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

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

  1. This seller is using an alternate ID by the looks of it.

    jackrang2009 is the alternate ID I refer to.

    All drives listed on either ID should be considered as highly likely to be both counterfeit and fake capacity.

  2. I can safely say all the drives on offer from this seller were counterfeit.

    The seller had three seperate listings for the 128GB DT200 and another listing for a job lot of ten 64GB DT150’s.

    Kingston forced ebay to remove them all.
