256GB DT310 from ebayer 2010*onlinekaufen probable counterfeit

leave a comment »

We think it extremely unlikely that this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 USB flash drive listed at auction on ebay by 2010*onlinekaufen is genuine, especially as this seller has also listed a very obvious fake 128GB flash drive which seems to have been purchased from hot.dog228.

If you bought a flash memory item from ebay seller chinasalestore you are advised to test immediately with h2testw as we are pretty certain that both the 32GB USB flash drives and the memory cards pictured here are fake capacity, which corrupts files.

counterfeit 128GB Kingston DT200 drives listed on ebay by set4d

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from set4d are too cheap to be anything other than fake capacity counterfeits purchase from a fraudulent supplier in China. A fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files once the real capacity (usually 4GB or less) has been filled.

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from gregorywxx are certain to be fake capacity counterfeits which corrupt files. At this price they simply couldn’t be anything else as manufacturing a real one costs a lot more than this seller’s price!

Is dianec19682008 selling genuine DT200 on ebay? We doubt it.

We don’t think for a moment that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing are genuine. Unless seller is either a rich philanthropist who is prepared to make a loss on every sale or hijacked a consignment of Kingston flash drives we don’t see how it is possible at this price.

We think that these USB flash drives are fake capacity counterfeits. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. In the extremely unlikely event that we are wrong buyers will be able to verify that their drives are genuine with Kingston by quoting the serial number.

128GB Kingston DT200 listed on ebay by andy610348 is either a bargain or a fake

with one comment

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in this ebay listing from andy610348 seem a bit on the cheap side. These are either a great bargain (in which case buyers will be able to verify the serial numbers with Kingston) or fake capacity counterfeits which Kingston won’t verify. A fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files.
