Counterfeit Kingston on ebay Australia

with one comment


We think that if the seller who listed this beleived that the supplier these were purchase from was selling genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives then perhaps josephthewise should change ID to josephtheunwise! They were obviously purchased for a price too low for them to be genuine. They will be counterfeit and fake capacity, causing data loss and corruption for any user after a while.

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. I can now confirm these drives were definite counterfeits.

    Kingston have removed one so far. The other two sold will follow shortly.

    Correct again fightflashfraud. It should have been josephtheunwise!
