It is highly unlikely that this 32GB Kingston DT200 is genuine

It is highly unlikely that this 32GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive listed at auction on ebay by kunik72 (a seller registered in Israel) is genuine. We think it is a counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drive that 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.

Seller sentinel250 has been selling 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives on ebay – no one could possibly afford to sell genuine ones at the prices they fetched. This leads us to the conclusion that they are counterfeits from a fraudulent wholesale outlet. Counterfeit USB flash drives corrupt files.

Is it possible to buy a genuine 128GB USB flash drive on ebay for $27 US? No it certainly is not!! The 128GB USB flash drives from caihong-art are fakes. The seller’s picture shows the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive – the manufacturing cost of these is higher than this seller’s buy it now price. These flash drives corrupt files.

Seller Lustenau has ebay auctions for both 64GB and 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives. We think the seller bought these from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory items. If we are right (which we are sure we are) these flash drives will corrupt files.

We think lottiluschi is yet another ebay member selling a counterfeit 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive which will corrupt files. The seller states very clearly that there are no returns and no warranty.

Ebay seller in the USA seems to have shopped in fake flash land

Seller my_green_heart listed a number of these 32GB USB flash drives in ebay auctions. This model of USB flash drive always proves to be fake capacity and corrupts files. As this seller apparently bought from a fraudulent supplier all flash memory items listed will be fakes.

We think it extremely unlikely that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives listed on ebay by ibm-design are genuine. We think they are counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier – if we are right these USB flash drives will be fake capacity, resulting in lost and corrupted files.
