Are you aware DT150 Kingston DataTraveler usb flash drives sold from eBay Australia are usually fake? The DT 150 model is old, major internet sites have not offered them for a long time. Kingston no longer manufactures them. Several years ago, this model was very popular at SOSFakeFlash, so many buyers reported the sellers, 64GB capacity was hot. Also it was expensive, not cheap. As members of the FrankenFlash Project repeatedly stress, flash memory chips are not like last years fashion t-shirt. Prices rarely reduce and are never sold below the cost price. Remember the cost price for real capacity DT150’s was high. Always validate Kingston usb flash drives with Kingston, that is your most important proof.
