Kingston Flash Drive Hoax

Well I need a new flash drive and was searching on ebay. I found this product:
Kingston 64 GB Data Traveler 300 perfect condition USB - eBay (item 350375474636 end time Jul-28-10 18:56:35 PDT)

only problem is is that the seller claims it to be a datatraveler 300, now that searies only is manufactured in 256Gb
Kingston Technology Company - Flash Memory - DataTraveler 300
I would like some input becouse i need a new flash drive, preferably cheap, and 64G or higher. If I do get it I plan on using it for: BartPE, varius linux OSs, and lots of data storage( on campus). you can probably see where linux comes in

and others similar like it. what scares me the most is if it is fake becouse the datatraveler 300 searies is only 256GB , but the one on ebay is 64GB.
So what do you guys think, i dont want to be left in the dark with this one

Be very wary of those cheap sticks. I bought one (64gb) for £16 and when tested with a program called h2testw only the first few GB were genuinely writable the rest was snake-oil.
