256GB DT310 flash drive from the_items_you_love on ebay

leave a comment »

It seems unlikely that this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash being auctioned on ebay by the_items_you_love is 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, guarantee 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 guarantee 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.

Seller super.hotdog has two current listings for these fake capacity 128GB flash drives (item numbers 160506869597 and 160506870738) – these fake USB flash drives corrupt files because the real capacity is nowhere near the advertised capacity and they are programmed to show a false capacity to the operating system.

128GB Kingston flash drives sold by archangel15650 are fakes

leave a comment »

Anyone who looks at what is actually available on the Kingson webstite would know that the supposed 128GB Kingston flash drives sold on ebay by archangel15650 are out and out fakes.

The Kingston DataTraveler 310 is not produced in 128GB capacity!! So far it seems that two ebayers bought themselves one of these fake capacity counterfeits: ebay item numbers 300484826123 and 300489571956.

The buyers will discover that after a while the fake capacity counterfeit USB flash drive they purchased from archangel15650 corrupts their files. At the price paid, they really shouldn’t be surprised! It looks as though the current auction for one of these fakes (ebay item number 300493152701) may end without bids.
