If the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive being auctioned in this ebay listing by avipnetworks is genuine the seller may well regret using an auction rather than a buy it now listing as avipnetworks is very likely to make a loss on the sale. If (on the other hand) it is one of the many counterfeits being churned out in China then it will be fake capacity and corrupts files.

We are pretty certain it is a fake capacity counterfeit but in the extremely unlikely case that we are wrong the buyer will be able to use the serial number to verify that the drive is genuine with Kingston. Somehow we don’t think Kingston will verify flash drives sold on ebay by avipnetworks.

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.
