Before you go buy that Microsoft Zune on eBay, listen up. User bastix0815 at ZuneARama thinks that he may have purchased a counterfeit Zune on the popular online auction site.
just received my 8GB Zune from Ebay.
When I saw the box first I was kind of shocked. Text and Printing not aligned to the center of the packaging, no sticker with serial number and Barcode. As well there were no manuals and the earphones and synch cable were not in separate boxes.
Then I thought "wonderful you've bought a fake Zune" but the Device looks fine (ok it looks like second quality, dented screw cover (or whatever the chrome cover covers and some errors in the laser engraving at the back) When I plugged it into my PC it started charging and a few minutes later it started up and shows correct firmware as well.
The only question is who would bother counterfeiting a Zune?
