I just purchased a nanoVNA V2Plus4 from Amazon and am wondering is this VNA real or a clone.
SN# is 355536B4-00073333-36343234
Firmware is gi-20210530-412578c
Board NannoVNA V2Plus4
Is this a real or a clone and does it have the latest board HW (2.4) and firmware? If I need to update the firmware, what version do you recommend?
I've attached a photo from the screen .
Beware of cheap underperforming clones
As of 2022 there are many badly performing clones on the market. V2/3GHz NanoVNA uses parts like ADF4350 and AD8342 which are costly and clones have been cutting costs by using salvaged or reject parts.
See official store and look for V2 Plus4/V2 Plus4 Pro versions only to avoid getting a bad clone. We have stopped selling V2.2 versions since October 2020, so all V2 hardware that are not Plus or Plus4 are not made by us and we can not guarantee performance.
