We don’t think that this item listed at auction on ebay Australia is a genuine 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive. We think it is a counterfeit USB flash drive that corrupts files which was purchased by ebay seller whyallastar from a fraudulent supplier. We think that the 32GB Kingston SD memory cards are also counterfeits that will trash users’ photos and videos.

The seller may have no idea that these items are fake – sadly, far too few ebay sellers either do their research before buying flash memory items to sell on ebay or test the items they get from suppliers properly before listing them for sale.

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.
