If this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive sold on ebay by ltech007 was genuine then seller ltech007 made a loss by auctioning it. However, the apparent lack of a serial number on the back of the packaging makes us sure it is counterfeit. Normally we would advise people to check the serial number with Kingston to ensure a flash drive is genuine, however if there is no serial number it simply has to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

Whether you are a buyer or a seller always check the back of the package to find the serial number for a Kingston flash drives. Each Kingston flash drive (at least the high capacity ones, anyway) should have a unique serial number. If there is no serial number (or the serial numbers are the same) it’s counterfeit. All genuine Kingston flash drives have the drive capacity, model and other information engraved on the USB connector – no engraving means a counterfeit!!

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.
