64GB Kingston DT200 on ebay seems too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

The 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed on ebay Australia by shopminimax seem a bit on the cheap side, as do the 32GB Corsair flash drives from this seller. This makes us wonder if shopminimax bought them from one of the many fraudulent wholesaler supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory items. The Kingston flash drives should all have individual serial numbers which can be verified with Kingston if they are genuine, the same probably applies to Corsair drives.

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.
