A Quick Test To See If It's Fake!

Go to my computer and right click on the Removable Disk, Then go to propeties, Then hardware tab! Dose it show as Kingston? If Not It's Fake! Also Plug The Drive Into A USB Port And See What Colour The Light Is! (It Should Be A Green Light Not A Red One.)

I Bought A 64GB Kingston Drive Off Ebay And When I Tested It With h2testw (Found On Google) It Was In Fact Only A 1GB Drive I Wrote 12Gb Of Data To It And 11Gb Got Corupt!

 

To Help All The Sellers And Buyers On eBay I Have Done This Review For You!

Ok If Your Thinking Of Buying One Of These Cheap White/Green So Called Kingston 64Gb Flash Drives Then You Are In For A Bit Of A Shock! (As Kingston Do Not Do A 64Gb Drive In White/Green!) These Are Only A Fraction Of The Size That Is Stated! These Are Just Flash Drive's That Have Been Hacked To Look Like 64Gb Drives! If You Have Bought One You Should Contact The Seller And Ask For A Refund! Sellers If You Did Not Know That You Were Selling A Fake Drive, Then Please Give The Buyer There Money Back And Do The Right Thing.  If On The Other Hand You Have Been Contacted By Myself Or One Of The Other Anti Fraud Contacts And You Continue To Sell These Fake Drives! Then I Am Afraid You Are Breaking The Law For Knowingly Selling A Fake Drive! THIS IS CLASSED AS THEFT!! If A Seller Does Not Give You A Refund For Your Fake Item Please Contact Me With All The Details Of The Listing ect. And I Will Pass All Information Onto Kingston's Legal Department Who Have The Power To Prosecute The Seller Of The Said Item, And Claim Compensation For There Trademark!

Remember If The Price Seems To Good To Be True, Then You Can Bet It Is!

Keep eBay A Safe Place To Shop :)
