256GB DT310 flash drive from ebayer topprice12 sure to be fake

leave a comment »

We are certain that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive in this ebay listing from topprice12 will turn out to be a fake capacity counterfeit. If it was really bought for the seller as a birthday present for $280 Australian then it was suspiciously cheap in the first place!

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.

leave a comment »

Seller grencar6 has listed several 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives at auction on ebay. We have a funny feeling that this seller may have bought them from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China. 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?

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
