The buy it now price in this ebay listing from karaokebuyer111 seems rather low for a 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive which makes us wonder whether this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier. If the flash drives did come from a fraudulent supplier they will be fake capacity counterfeits which corrupt files. If they are genuine then buyers will be able to confirm this by verifying the serial numbers with Kingston. We think they probably came from a fraudulent supplier.

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.
