Kingston flash drives in ebay auctions with very low start price

leave a comment »

UK seller telboy74 has listed this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive with the stunningly low start price of £10 and the 64GB version with a start price of £5. Genuine Kingston DT 200 flash drives are very expensive but the huge number of fakes listed on ebay go for very low prices.

If these are genuine the seller is likely to make a huge loss by doing this. Either that or, like almost all the others, they will turn out to be counterfeits that trash users files. Genuine flash drives of this type have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston.

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