An original unit can only come from official dealers, they do not sell on Ebay !!
The clones are 2 qualities Chinese sell the HQ clone but remember that the software will cost you a lot of money. They get sold with PTT V1.xx software free, you will want to use PTT v2.xx software which will cost a lot more
Go to a dealer, you will get it taken off you.
