Seller draymarketing2010 has listed very obvious fake 256GB Kingston flash drives on ebay. As Axel points out the DataTraveler 200 is not made in 256GB capacity, only 32GB (blue) 64GB (yellow) and 128GB (black) – there is no 256GB model. This flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier in China. You’d think ebay would have spotted such an obvious fake straight away, wouldn’t you?

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.
