256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive from kipkorirmutai

leave a comment »

We doubt that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives being sold at auction on ebay by kipkorirmutai are genuine. Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
  4. If there is no engraving you can be sure it is a counterfeit that will trash your files – but again, the presence of engraving does not in itself gaurantee it is genuine.

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
  6. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then you have a fake capacity counterfeit and your data will become lost or corrupted after a while.

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.

Oh dear – the “New Genuine Kingston DT200 – 256 GB Flash Drive – 5 Pcs” sold by laffsalot606 in ebay listing numbers 230523372988, 230523759363 and 230525906955 are very obvious fakes. There is no 256GB Kingston DT200 flash drive other than the fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China. If you see a pink coloured Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive anywhere you can be sure that it’s a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

128GB Corsair Voyager flash drives listed on ebay by arecki23

We are certain that this model of Corsair Voyager flash drive is not available in 128GB capacity. We think ebay seller made the mistake of buying from a fraudulent supplier and that these are fake capacity counterfeits which will corrupt files.
