Topic: Is This Uno Fake? (Read 2037 times) previous topic - next topic

Hey there... I recently received a new uno in the mail, ordered from amazon.  It works fine and everything is solid so I have no intentions on returning this... but the on-board print is not only different from any other uno I have owned/seen, but it is also a lower quality print on board... here are some pictures... just curious if you guys think its fake as well.

Thanks!

Looks like a clone.  It says "DESIGN IN ITALY" rather than "MADE IN ITALY" and the image of Italy is less precise:

Looks like they didn't know how to spell either (electroics).

Amazon sells fakes/clones too now?  Sheesh.

Amazon is effectively a virtual mall.  Nearly anyone can sell anything on through their site.  So no, "Amazon" doesn't sell Arduinos now.  Some other seller has Arduinos listed through Amazon.
