Clone or not? NanoVNA-F V2


n3cga 2021/07/23 15:44

I'm questioning whether I bought a clone or not; and wondering if it matters much or if at all.  I just ordered and received it from Amazon Prime who advertised it as the most popular seller.  I paid over 200 with the additional connectors; and the unit is identified as a "NanoVNA-F V2" version v0.1.0 firmware dated 2020-12-28 from www.sysjoint.com ( http://www.susjoint.com ).  Did I get taken?

Thanks and best regards,
Charles

I have recently bought (just a few weeks ago) a NanoVNA-F V2 directly from AliExpress. It was shipped from the Czech
Republic and it took about ten days to Italy.
I paid for it 97 Euro, shipping included.  If you paid over 200 (dollars ?) for it, you paid really too much.
And firmware 0.1.0 is very old. The current one is 0.2.4   Mine arrived with 0.2.3 installed, which I immediately
upgraded to 0.2.4   It looks like yours is one of the first units produced.

hi Charles,
each NanoVNA-F V2 has a unique serial number, you can send the serial number of your device to SYSJOINT support mailbox to verify it. we have not found clones on the market till this moment.
btw, $200 is much higher than our official price of $149.
