I’m very new to the world of electronics, only really getting started properly at Christmas.
As I’ve been programming for some 30 years, I was excited by the possibilities that the Arduino provides so ordered a Uno last week.
The board has arrived this morning (from an official distributor) but I noticed that the box differs from all of those I’ve seen online in either static images or YouTube unboxing videos. The version I’ve seen previously had a sticker to seal the flap on the front of the box. The version I’ve received is quite different with a seal one end of the box which you can then close again by way of a flap. It has all of the usual stickers inside but I just wanted to be sure I have a genuine Rev3 and wondered if this is very old or very new packaging.
The board itself looks the genuine article with Made in Italy text etc although I haven’t yet powered it up.
