The buy it now price in this ebay listing from hightechnology2009 seems rather too low for the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives being sold to be genuine. We suspect that hightechnology2009 bought them from a fraudulent supplier and that these are fake capacity counterfeits. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. In the unlikely event that we are mistaken and the drives are genuine buyers will be able to verify the serial number of their drive with Kingston.

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.
