The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from ajb01-2008 (item number 260694323740) is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. Sony have never sold flash drives that look like this and the leather and steel type flash drives are always fake whether stamped Sony or not.

256GB Kingston DT310 flash drives in ebay auctions from ashr1c

We think it is highly unlikely that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives being auctioned on ebay by ashr1c are 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.
