We are certain these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed on ebay by trolleycable are counterfeits which will corrupt users’ files. We are sure that this ebayer bought from one of the fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items. The seller may have no idea they are likely to be counterfeits. Genuine DT200 flash drives have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston – we don’t think they will verify these.

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.
