If this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive in this ebay listing is genuine seller star875010 may make a loss on the sale. The buyer can check whether or not it is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If the serial number cannot be verified the USB 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.

UPDATE 08/09/2010
The 256GB DT300 flash drives from star875010 are definitely counterfeits – the seller has a buy it now listing at far too low a price for them to be genuine.
