If this 32GB Kingston DataTravleler 200 USB flash drive sold on ebay by rudaxe-business is genuine the buyer got a bargain as it sold for $57.00 with $4 for shipping. These cost $116.00 if you buy direct from Kingston However, we wonder this is yet another ebay seller who bought from a fraudulent supplier in China as we can’t see any sign in the seller’s picture of the engraving that should be on the USB connector if it is genuine.

If this flash drive did come from a fraudulent supplier it will be a fake capacity counterfeit which corrupts files. The buyer can check whether or not it is genuine by verifying the serial number of the flash drive with Kingston – all genuine ones have unique verifiable serial numbers.

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.
