I have two genuine Unos, a genuine Mega and Leonardo and Yun and none of them has printing on the sides of the headers....R
I bought them in Maplin years ago....R
There are several models of the Arduino UNO board. Some of them have the labels on the header pins and others just have these labels printed on the board, but there is no difference on how they work and their functional features.To know how to distinguish a counterfeit Arduino UNO you don't need those labels, you can take a look at the following link to see some examples and peculiarities of these ones:https://www.arduino.cc/en/Products/Counterfeit
I have an inferior product
With respect WTF is inferior about it? It will do all the same calculations at exactly the same speed.I'm beginning to smell a Troll....R
I have two counterfeits (ATMega328P boards using Arduino logo) and these don't have labels on the header pins. While tinkering with these counterfeits, it become apparent to me that I often plug the jumper cable on the wrong header pin, because it's really not quite easy to determine what pin I am plugging the cable, I've decided to order one from the Official Store thinking that it would have labels on the header pins and to my dismay when it arrived after 1 month of waiting, there were no labels to be found.I was very disappointed and sad by this fact I thought I paid a premium for quality control and it turns out not all boards are produced equally, some have labels printed, some don't. It's cost cutting that trades off user experience.
Yeah - these are definitely a custom made part (labels on stackable pin headers) especially for the Arduino Uno Rev 3 - probably also part of the way to act as an identifier of an actual Arduino, vs a clone or counterfeit (mostly the latter) being sold as "the real thing". So - you're likely not going to be able to purchase them yourself.Besides using a label - I can think of another way to make these - it wouldn't be cheap or easy, but it would be much cheaper than going to a manufacturer to have 10K of them custom made
If you look carefully at the right side of that picture you can just barely see it says "arduino.org". My guess is if you look at your board you will see it says "arduino.cc". I don't believe the .cc boards have ever had the printed headers. For example, if you look at the picture on the Adafruit website:https://www.adafruit.com/product/50they are not printed and Adafruit is the manufacturer for the Uno in the US.The picture of the Uno on the Arduino Store page:does not show printed headers. Maybe this was changed since you complained but it's strange that your embedded image is from reichelt.de rather than arduino.cc.If the product listing you purchased showed the printed headers and you received non-printed headers then you have reason to complain and request a return. If the picture didn't show the printed headers then you got exactly what was advertised.
I don't believe the .cc boards have ever had the printed headers.
This is to answer your argument, the store page of the UNO R3 is simply outdated
your argument that what I should get is the product shown in the images
now if you examine the boards store.arduino.cc sells, the UNO R3 Long Pins product photos has labels printed on the headers and the PCB's color is Teal.
If the image shown on the product listing page matches the product you receive how can you possibly consider that outdated?
