3 day ebay auction for 256GB Kingston DT300 from octogonpc

leave a comment »

If this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 USB flash drive is genuine then seller octogonpc is taking a big risk by selling it in a 3 day ebay auction as the seller is very likely to make a loss. The buyer can confirm whether or not it is genuine by using Kingston’s serial number verification system. If the serial number cannot be verified by Kingston then the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

Sony Vaio flash drive from ebayer potingroup2010 will corrupt files

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive. Sony do not use the Vaio name for flash drives. The USB flash drive in this ebay auction from potingroup2010 is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. The same applies to any other flash drive being sold as Sony Vaio.

128GB Kingston DT200 flash drives from ebayer sleigherdelray

We think it highly unlikely that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives auctioned on ebay by sleigherdelray are genuine. In the unlikely event that they are genuine buyers can confirm this by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If no serial number is present or the serial number cannot be verified by Kingston then we are right and the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

dhogue2010 auctioning 256GB Kingston DT310 flash drives on ebay

We think it unlikely that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives listed in three day auctions by dhogue2010 are genuine. Buyers can check with Kingston by verifying the serial number of the flash drive. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

64GB Sandisk Ultra backup from ebayer jojodavison a bit cheap

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from jojodavison seems rather low for the 64GB Sandisk Ultra Backup USB flash drive. This makes us wonder whether this seller made the mistake of buying from a fraudulent supplier in China selling fake capacity counterfeits.

If these did come from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China then buyers will find that the flash drive corrupts files after a while. If the 64GB Lexar flash drives came from the same supplier then the same would apply to them. If the flash drives from jojodavison are fakes the seller probably has no idea that this is the case.

We doubt that the used 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives being sold at auction on ebay by kdjacob11 are genuine. We think they could well be fake capacity counterfeits and advise buyers to test them immediately on receipt.
