The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 flash drives in this ebay listing from 2009yanzi are fake capacity counterfeits – they are way too cheap to be anything else. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. This seller also offers the 128GB DT200 (also counterfeit of course) and fake 256GB and 128GB Sony Vaio flash drives – ALL Sony Vaio flash drives are fake!!

UPDATE 01/08/2010
Seller 2009yanzi has been suspended by ebay who seem to have not only removed listings for fake flash drives but also all items sold by 2009yanzi – so anyone who bought a pair of ear-rings or a bracelet rather than a flash memory item will also find their item has vanished from their won list!

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.
