We think it highly unlikely that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed by seller gucia78 on ebay USA will be genuine. In the very unlikely case that it is the serial number can be verified with Kingston. It seems much more likely (as the starting price for the auction is below manufacturing cost) that it is counterfeit and fake capacity. A counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts 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.
