    I wouldn't trust it. If its too good to be true, it probably is a scam. Looks like some guy in Hong Kong running it out of his basement to me...

    That's what I'm thinking. I wrote them to see where they are located.

    If it turns out it's true, I'm buying 2-3 of them. lol.

    There is this comment on newegg:

    Other Thoughts: I did not purchase 2 of these items on newegg but rather
    on ioffer.com for $25/item. Both arrive in good condition,
    were recognized in both linux and windows, but after a
    few i/o's they died. Windows from the beginning reported
    "No enough space left on device" after a few megabytes
    transfer.
    I tried to get an RMA from Kingston but they said it is not
    available for items purchased abroad; they were sent from
    China.


    Since this is a comment I do not rate the items; I only
    hope Kingston reads it and posts a comment. I strongly
    suspect these items that I got are fakes made in China:
    It is impossible that they sold them to me for $25 while
    newegg sells them for over $700.
    My low rating is because newegg requires one but I hope
    is for Kingston to reply
