We think this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive sold on ebay by jmvtec67 is counterfeit and fake capacity, which corrupts files. It seems likely that this ebayer bought them from a fraudulent supplier in China – if we are wrong then this seller made a huge loss on the two sold to date.

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.

UPDATE 26/06/2010
Strangely seller jmvtec67 has had no feedback for either the item in this ebay listing (item number 270575451666) to date, or for the previous two sales, yet feedback for other listings for fake DT200 drives since then has been left quickly and all is positive. If the flash drives were genuine the seller would be well out of pocket by now, so they simply have to be fakes. All very suspicious in our book!!
