Is DT310 flash drive from ebayer vivasiimre genuine? Doubtful.

Even with the large charge for postage (a breach of ebay policies as it constitutes fee evasion) it is likely that seller vivasiimre will make a loss if the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive in this ebay listing is genuine. A genuine DT310 has an individual serial number that can be used to confirm the drive is genuine with Kingston. We suspect this one probably isn’t and a counterfeit flash drive is always fake capacity and corrupts files.

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.
