We think it unlikely that this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler sold in a private ebay auction by dealsandmore2009 is genuine. We think it very likely that this USB flash drive will turn out to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. In the event that we are wrong and the flash drive is genuine the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. This seller has a current auction for another of these.

Buyers are advised never to bid for flash memory items in private auctions – the items are almost certain to be fake.

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.
