The buy it now price in this ebay listing is rather low which makes us suspect that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives being sold by ali_the_brit17 came from one of the fraudulent suppliers in China. If we are right then this USB flash drive corrupts files. If we are wrong (and we don’t think we are) then the buyer will be able to verify the serial number 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.
