The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive in this ebay listing from kam8580 is too cheap to be anything other than 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 08/10/10
Seller kam8580 has listed 256GB Kingston DT200 flash drives now – these don’t even exist except as fakes from fraudsters in China! See ebay item number 170550167567 for an example!! Anyone who looks at Kingston’s web site could tell these are fakes. DUH!
