128GB DT200 flash drive in ebay auction from djnightlight likely to be fake

We think it extremely unlikely that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive being auctioned on ebay by djnightlight is genuine. We are pretty sure that this is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to verify with Kingston that the drive is genuine using the unique serial number that every genuine DT200 has. Somehow we do not think Kingston will verify this one!

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.
