128GB DT200 in ebay auction from byrdfish2flyfree

We think it likely that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive being auctioned on ebay by byrdfish2flyfree will turn out to be another fake capacity counterfeit. If we are mistaken the buyer will be able to confirm it is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then it is (as we suspect) 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.
