4GB Kingston USB flash drives on ebay Canada a bargain?

If these 4GB USB 2.0 Hi-Speed DataTraveler 102 flash drives listed by futuregood are genuine we will be surprised as they are almost half the price advertised by Kingston and beat even newegg’s price.

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.

rzdal

These 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives sold by rzdal are bound to be counterfeit and fake capacity. Genuine ones have serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston – we don’t think they will verify these.

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

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

You cannot buy genuine 16GB flash drives for £15 on ebay let alone 64GB ones. This is a fake that will trash users’ files. We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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

The 4GB USB flash drives listed by this UK ebayer seem like promotional items

m4ynk

The two models of 4GB USB flash drive listed by m4ynk seem to be promotional items produced for a photographic print company called Pearl Photos as they are marked with the company’s name. We hope that the seller tested them to ensure they are not fake or faulty as a number of companies who ordered promotional flash drives from manufacturers in the far east ended up with fakes.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.
