32GB Kingston DataTraveler Counterfeit Fake USB Flash Drive – DTI Series – White With Power Blue – DTI/512

Posted by flashchiptutor on April 4, 2009

Beware Kingston DataTraveler advertised as 32GB with drive colour white with power blue is a counterfeit – fake! Kingston did not produce these, in the size advertised with the colour coding stated. Sold on wholesaler internet sites in China and Hong Kong. Often sold as “upgraded” – there is no such thing. This drive is likely to have a real capacity in line with it’s colour coding case. Old smaller capacity Kingston usb flash drives are frequent targets for counterfeiting and digitally altering to report a much larger capacity than the flash chip can support.

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.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
