Seller in Australia lists suspect 128GB DT200 USB flash drives

We very much doubt that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed by $$$bargainsearch$$$ will prove to be genuine. If they are genuine they will have individual serial numbers which can be verified by Kingston. We don’t think they will verify these as we strongly suspect that they are counterfeit and fake capacity drives which will trash users’ files. Looking at the drive’s properties does not tell you anything as fakes are programmed to lie to the operating system.

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 testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
