If this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive listed at auction on ebay by turnkeykitchen was genuine the seller would risk making a loss by auctioning it. However as this seller is offering these on buy it now for US$125 with shipping of $18.45 (too cheap) we are certain that anyone who buys a 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 USB flash drive will end up with a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

A genuine Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive has a unique serial number which can be used to verify with Kingston that the drive is genuine. If the serial number cannot be verified then the flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

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.
