You can’t buy a genuine 16GB flash drive for under £17 let alone a 128GB one – the flash chips to make a genuine 128GB flash drive cost more than this to manufacture! The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from laopeng68 (registered in China) was not made by Kingston. It is fake capacity and 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.
