This 128GB Kingston USB flash drive listed on ebay by tn_tran is fairly certain to be counterfeit and fake capacity. This ebay seller (registered in Canada) has a number of listings for 128GB and 64GB Kingston USB flash drives – we think they were purchased from a fraudulent supplier. The seller may not realise there could be a problem but we are certain that any USB flash drive from tn_tran corrupts files due to the fact that the memory chips in them actually have a much smaller capacity than shown by the operating system.

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.
