    Ebay clones.

    Just had a quick look on the bay there, there are quite a few sellers selling counterfeit Vu+ Duo's and selling them for the same as an original WTF, I'd be well annoyed if I bought one of these clones, paid the same price as an original and found out it was a cheap copy.

    Item number: 190668137558


    Item number: 190668139807


    Item number: 200745546829


    Item number: 200745548021


    Item number: 170828317677

    Although we wont support clones here It is unfortunate that people are being conned into buying a cloned receivers at the price of a original receiver.

    I can never stress enough that it's always best to shop around and buy from a reputable retailer rather than going on ebay for a so called bargain.

    How can you tell these are clones? Just looking at the pictures to they eye they look genuine. I agree that people should buy from a proper dealer where you get support and get the real deal product.

    Its even more cheeky that they are selling it with vix on - which means it must be someone who uses this site.

    Unless i'm missing something, why do you think these 3 listings are clones ? Item number: 200745546829, 200745548021 and 251041075232.

    The others I 100% agree.

    Could be wrong about the last one, so Phoenix can you delete that one, the extended warranty again on that one, just seemed a bit suspect ?

    Also it sais something about the packaging it comes in not being original or will come in a plain box ???

    The last one (as in item no:170828317677) is 110% a clone, look at the 2nd picture.

    which one do you want me to remove mate ? and as far as i'm aware ebay them selves cover the warranty on electrical items such as these so offering a separate warranty is taking the water.

    If you really must use ebay to buy your receivers then this is the only guy to use.
