Just bought an arduino uno r3 from radioshack. are these legit? googled how to spot a fake arduino and I’m confused. radioshack itself sells many “Make” products and arduino stuff. Any one else have a radioshack arduino?any insight would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.
Radio shack Arduino are genuine arduinos. It was "big news" back when it first happened (#Arduino@Radioshack. Post Your Pic! | Arduino Blog) Of course, since then RS has had problems, and there was the .cc vs .org Arduino split. I'd assume that the RS Arduinos come from .org - they seem to have kept the contacts with the "big distributers." And I suppose that it's possible that RS has started selling clones to increase their profits (but that seems relatively unlikely.)
