Another very suspect ebay listing for 128GB Kingston flash drive

leave a comment »


Although seller slaters1000 does not mention the Kingston name in the title the flash drive pictured in the listing is the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 – or rather, it isn’t! It’s a fake that will corrupt users’ files. A real one would cost far more to make than these are being sold for. The largest genuine capacity drive you can probably get anywhere (and this is unlikely) is 32Gb, not 64GB and most certainly not 128GB!!

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.
