Counterfeit 128GB Kingston DT200 in ebay auction from mkintner

We can state without the shadow of a doubt that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive in this ebay auction from mkintner 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.

UPDATE 26/01/10

We notice that mkintner is now selling the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 – sure to be counterfeit too if they came from the same supplier!

  1. heatheradkins – a popular seller of these same drives sold me one of these drives and after careful inspection, the drive turned out to be fake.
