Seller elihanka has listed a number of 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives at auction on ebay and we wonder whether or not these are genuine. The auction start price is a bit on the low side so seller would be likely to make a loss if there are not enough bidders and the drives are genuine – a rather risky strategy.

These flash drives should all have individual serial numbers which can be verified by buyers with Kingston if they are indeed genuine. If the serial number cannot be verified then this USB flash drive is counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files. Testing with h2testw will reveal the true capacity of flash drives programmed to a fake capacity.

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.
