Anyone who knows their Kingston flash drives would instantly realise that the flash drive in this ebay listing from hedisaadi is not a genuine 64GB Kingston. If this flash drive was genuine the capacity would be 2GB not 64GB – and in fact this particular model has never been made in 64GB capacity.

What we have here is a fake capacity counterfeit Kingston manufactured by fraudsters in China. This flash drive corrupts files once the true capacity (probably 2GB or less) has been filled with files.

256GB Kingston flash drives on ebay from htplace may be fakes

leave a comment »

Although seller htplace has buy it now listings on ebay for 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives at prices which might mean they could be genuine the picture used is the exact same one as used by a number of sellers who are certainly selling counterfeits which makes us a little suspicious. If this flash drive is genuine then the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. If the serial number cannot be verified then the flash drive will be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.
