The buy it now price in this ebay listing from mbarib20 is too low for these 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives to be genuine. This seller obviously made the mistake of buying fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent wholesale outlet. Anyone buying one of these fakes will find that their USB flash drive corrupts files once the real capacity (probably a lot closer to 256 megabytes than to 256 gigabytes) has been filled.

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.
