perthtruckie lists obvious counterfeit 256GB Kingston on ebay

This Kingston flash drive listed on ebay by perthtruckie is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. If it was a genuine DataTraveler 200 it would be the 32GB model as these are colour coded (blue is 32GB, yellow 64GB and black 128GB) – there is NO 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 200. The highest capacity this model is available in is 128GB. Anyone can check this out by looking at the Kingston web site. Shame perthtruckie didn’t do so – or perhaps chose to ignore the fact that he (or she?) is selling obvious fakes?

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.
