I thought radioshack sells real arduinos. Those boxes look real to me.
So Tandy is not just contracting out to Arduino spec but getting boards directly from Arduino? CorrectAnd Arduino doesn't check their work?Not the first manufacturing error we have heard about from an end user. I'm sure they have some kind of QC process steps performed in their manufacturing runs, but errors happen. Reality is a harsh mistress.By the way I have bought several Asian arduino clone boards and lots of electronic modules from Ebay, all have worked fine and quality left nothing to be desired, so luck of which seller/manufacture chosen is a factor.
