The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in this ebay listing from m_r_enterprises are fake capacity counterfeits. The drive is the wrong colour to be genuine and anyone buying one of these will find it corrupts their files after a while. As this seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier the 64GB DT200 flash drives from m_r_enterprises will aso be fakes.

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 04/10/2010
So far only one buyer has left feedback about these patenty fake Kingston flash drives still being sold on ebay by m_r_enterprises. The comment below was left on 20th September:

A credit to eBay. No quibble refund following problems with item. 5***** vendor!

This seller is not a five star vendor and is not a credit to anyone – a five star seller would immediately pull listings and check the item out – but selller m_r_enterprises has continued listing these obvious fakes!!
