64GB DT150 USB flash drives on ebay Australia are a bit too cheap

The buy it now price for these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives seems rather low which makes us think that seller andamianou may well have bought from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory. If this is the case these will corrupt users’ files.

Genuine DT 150 flash drives all have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston. We have a feeling that Kingston won’t verify these drives.

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.
