leave a comment »

Although no mention of Kingston was made in this ebay listing from suspended fake flash fraudster qilipiaoxi (registered in China, unsurprisingly) what the pictures show is the Kingston DataTraveler 200. The buy it now price in the listing is below the manufacturing cost for this flash drive so it is obvous that this USB flash drive is counterfeit, has a fake capacity (probably less than 4GB) and corrupts files. If you bought from this seller your item will have vanished from your won list because the seller has been suspended by ebay.

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.

The USB flash drive pictured in this ebay listing from lulimei22110 may be marked Sony but it has absolutely nothing to do with the company. It is counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files. The real capacity of the drive is unlikely to be more than 4GB though it will appear to have a capacity of 64GB. This seller has been suspended by ebay so this listing can no longer be seen on ebay and will have vanished from buyers’ won lists.

The USB flash drive sold in this ebay listing from bargainsellersinuk is not a Sony and does not have a real capacity of 64GB. This USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. The use of a private listing makes us wonder if this seller knows that they are fakes.
