Of course we know our Z80's a little better than the general public. So I thought this would make for a fun 'quiz'. Look at 2nd photo from the listing (1st or 3rd would also do).
I can spot:
- 4 mistakes I'd consider dead giveaways of being fake
- 3 things that make you go "eeehm... suspicious"
PLEASE DO NOT POST SPOILERS!
Just in case one of their Chinese 'colleagues' ever finds this thread, or it gets re-posted elsewhere. No need to make fake-sellers any wiser than they currently are (or -not). Consider this a "test your Z80 fakeness spotting skills". If you really 'need' to know what mistakes I found, sent me a PM for a list (or do so if you find even more mistakes in the image).
Disclaimer: no electrical tests were done on any specimens of above batch. Would expect that to show more issues...
