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.

UK Distributor on eBay?

Been looking for a UK supplier on eBay and found this seller
Delivery within 7 days. Anyone purchased from him and are they clones?

Looks like someone who has imported 10, kept one and is selling on the rest.

Looks like one of the clones (are they not all clones / made to an open sourced design) but that does not mean it's not good. Price seems very fair and it has a battery and cal kit.

I've taken a punt, I'll update when it arrives (if I figure out what I'm looking for).

I just ordered from him, and there is a special voucher code which reduces the price to £50.63, so I thought it was worthwhile to avoid the current uncertain delivery times.
I'll let you all know if it's good. My previous AQRP VIA has broken and I have wasted a long time trying to understand why it's not working - I think the Codec has given up. So I thought it was time to start again.
