128GB Kingston DT200 USB flash drives from ebayer ir100258
Are the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from ir100258 genuine? If so the price is extremely good. Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:
- Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
- Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
- If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
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.
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.
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.
Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
