The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from fhdhdsfe are counterfeit and fake capacity – at this price they simply couldn’t have been anything else. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. This seller has been suspended by ebay and the listing removed so anyone who bought will find it has vanished from their won list.

128GB flash drive from ebayer gregorup10 will corrupt files

leave a comment »

Seller gregorup10 realises that the flash drive in ebay listing number 300442910589 is not a genuine Kingston but does not seem to realise that a counterfeit flash drive is always fake capacity (nowhere near what the operating shows) and corrupts files once the real capacity – probably no more than 4GB – is full.

It is possible that by the time you read this seller sakser10 will have been suspended by ebay – in which case the listing shown above for counterfeit 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives will have been removed. If anyone bought one of these it is certain that this fake capacity counterfeit corrupts files – do not use it – check the serial number with Kingston, you will find it cannot be verified. Testing with h2testw will reveal the real capacity of the drive: probably 4GB or less.

Test flash memory items from ebay seller bellesbargains2009

leave a comment »

Seller bellesbargains2009 seems to have sold flash drives at slightly low prices on ebay which makes us wonder if the seller might have bought from a fraudulent supplier. If the USB flash drive pictured above did come from a fraudulent supplier it will be a fake capacity counterfeit which corrupts files.

128GB DT200 flash drives from ebayer vendedor1985 may be fake

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from vendedor1985 seem a little on the cheap side which makes us wonder whether they might be fakes from a fraudulent supplier in China. If they did come from a fraudulent supplier they will be fake capacity counterfeits and a fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files.

This seller is also offering 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives for sale – although these are closer to the price we’d expect they are still a bit on the cheap side and if they came from the same supplier it is likely they are counterfeits too.
