The flash drives in this ebay listing from dsedt are fakes. Sony has never sold any flash drives that look remotely like this. These are fake capacity USB flash drives and anyone who buys one will find it 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.

256GB DT310 flash drive in private ebay listing from fenmicurrent

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in this private ebay listing from fenmicurrent are too cheap to be anything but fake capacity counterfeits. We think the 32GB Sandisk memory cards being sold by fenmicurrent are also fakes.

ghgfppundefined and car-deco2008 sell counterfeit 128GB DT200

leave a comment »

You simply cannot buy a genuine 128GB Kingston DataTraveler at the price in many ebay listings – you’d be very unlikely to get even a genuine 16GB flash drive at the prices shown in the listing above from ghgfppundefined and the one below car-deco2008! All you can expect for such silly prices is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts your files.

wisegift auctions 256GB Kingston DT310 flash drives on ebay

If the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives listed at auction on ebay by wisegift are genuine then this seller is likely to make a loss on the auctions. 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.
