256GB DT310 flash drive for $75 from ebayer alkawrath

leave a comment »

Seller alkawrath says in this ebay listing that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive being sold has been tested and is genuine. We don’t beleive this for a second – if it was genuine why sell it for such a tiny price? Or is alkawrath a wealthy philanthropist that wants to help out a poverty-stricken ebayer by selling this at a huge loss??

We think it is a lot more likely that this USB flash drive is 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.
