Hi,
I'm new to Arduino and planning to buy my first Arduino. On ebay I came across two Arduinos (Arduino Uno Rev 3) and both sellers are clamming that they are selling the latest Arduino but as I compared the two respective images I got confused as they have minor differences and made me doubt which is the genuine one.

I have highlighted the differences in the following images:

Seller 1:


Seller 2:


Please help me find the right arduino

Thanks!

The latter one looks genuine.

It states that Arduino gets the polyfuse special made in that golden color (i'm not sure i believe that, but anyway...)

Thanks! Zapro

As per the link you mentioned the (seller 2) seems to be selling the genuine one.

Always assuming that what comes in the mail looks the same.  XD

Seller 1:


Counterfeit.

Seller 2:


...is using the Uno image from the Arduino website so there is no way to know from the image if it is or is not counterfeit.

Being sold on EBay makes the chances very high that it is counterfeit.  If it ships from China it is most certainly counterfeit.
