We think this 128GB flash drive listed on ebay by shinooni1 is counterfeit and fake capacity.

This is what the seller says in the listing:


Barely Used – My mates bought them for themselves but recently they upgraded to a portable hdd station which for them is better suited to their needs.

So they gave the usbs to me to sell for them since I already have a ebay account with seller and paypal setup. X_X so basically I am trying to just get rid of these I only get $10 of the sale so;I don’t have to care about how much they sell for or care to care.

So there it is a KINGSTON 128GB USB up for grabs starting at $1.00

So start bidding!

If we are right (and we usually are) this flash drive will be counterfeit and fake capacity. Anyone using it will eventually end up with lost and corrupted files.

We advise everyone to test flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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