If (as claimed) this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive is 100% genuine then ebay seller melly8523 has set the start price of this below the price paid for the drive. We think this is unlikely and that this USB flash drive will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity 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.
