Private listing for suspect 128GB Kingston by ebayer in France

leave a comment »


Seller satelite867 is using a private listing to sell this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive. We think the use of a private sale and the low price indicate that this is likely to be counterfeit. Serial numbers for this type of drive can be checked with Kingston – we don’t think they will verify drives from this seller. Counterfeits corrupt users’ data.

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.
