This is not a genuine 32GB Kingston USB flash drive

This model of flash drive is not made in capacities over 16GB. This item is counterfeit and will trash files. 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.

UPDATE
Since we first published this article seller telboy1966 has added some generic fakes (including a massively fake 256GB swivel type – not actually technically possible as we understand it) and an 8GB Kingston model. We wouldn’t touch flash drives from this seller with a barge pole!
