Beware Kingston DataTraveler model DT300 advertised as 128GB with this packaging and drive markings of 128GB is a counterfeit – fake! Kingston did not produce these. The DT300 usb flash drive was manufactured in only one capacity, 256GB. They are sold mainly on wholesaler internet sites in China and Hong Kong. You will also find them listed on eBay by sellers who do not research the DT300 model and demonstrate both negligence and ignorance. You can find them on other internet sites too. In some cases, listings will advertise them as “upgraded” – there is no such thing. This is a polite term for false capacity.

Avoid being frauded or scammed. Do not buy this usb flash drive in the packaging shown, you risk data loss. Do not sell this usb flash drive!

Instead, if you wish to buy on the internet visit Kingston’s site to determine the models offered and the colour coding for sizes to help you avoid a false capacity drive.
