There Is Nothing Massive About DT310/512GB DataTraveler USB Flash Drives Being Sold On eBay. apollolondon – United Kingdom eBay Seller Flash Memory – Test Immediately To Verify Advertised Capacity. Please Avoid Fake Memory Products! Falso?

Posted by KittyFireFlash on October 5, 2011

Is a DT310 usb flash drive at 512GB massive in storage? No it is not massive in storage, it is massive in fraud and data loss as there is no such thing as a Kingston DT310/512GB DataTraveler. eBay sellers such as apollolondon in the United Kingston continue to act irresponsibly. They do not bother to research their product before listing or importing from Asia. apollolondon proudly displays “UK Seller” for the DT310/512GB. Does inserting “US Seller” or “UK Seller” in a listing turn a counterfeit flash drive into a real one? No, it gives a false sense of reassurance to would be buyers. Just because the plastic casing says “512GB” does not make it so. Just because an operating system might show or report 512 GB does not guarantee make the actual storage capacity real. As yet, no one offers 512GB usb flash drives to consumers, generic or brand name. It is not on the market.

Just because it might be listed on eBay does not suddenly make it true. It becomes true only when major manufacturers announce they are have made one and are offering it for sale to the public. When they do offer 512GB usb flash drive pen sticks, you can expect to pay a lot of money for one. If a real DT310 at 256GB capacity generally sells at $700 US and higher, what do you think the next generation of usb flash drives at 512GB capacity are going to cost? If you compare usb external hard drives (mechanical) to usb flash drives as your guide in price point you are making a very serious mistake – likely to become the next victim of fake upgraded flash memory. Flash memory technology was never cheap and will never be inexpensive at a high capacity of storage, it is costly to produce. It requires many additional quality controls to ensure the capacity of storage chips meet reliability and can safely store data over time.
