what should I worry about Clone DB500s - 06-July-2009, 03:53

Hello friends, I wish to buy a DB500s but finding an original box is not that easy since they don't produce that model any more. And the few second boxes I came across, they are ridiculously expensive judging from their age;3-4years old. So I want to ask, what if I buy a clone? The clones, I can find them in no time but whats really, really the problem I should be worried about clones, apart from the sotfware time bomb!?
Thanks...

Clones work ok although according to some sources they are prone to problems when using Gemini images. Get one with 1 year warranty although I don't know if the warranty still stands if software is changed. I think theyr quite cheap compared to originals so even a couple of years out of them may be a more valuable option than original.

What not to worry about: clone => cheap, broken? get a new one

My clone is better than my broken original

info about MAC address - 06-July-2009, 21:03

small info on MAC address;
generally clones have mac addr as 00-12-25-xx-xx-xx while genuine boxes carry 00-09-34-xx-xx-xx-xx
it is very likely that multiple clones can carry same mac addres which can create conflicts when present on same network ;there are mac addr changing utilities available ,even to change permanently.

thanks,

I bought 2 clones, one for me one for a mate. Both came with 00-09-34 mac addresses but I still wouldn't trust a gemini image.

You can change the mac by running a script at startup.

Just don't use Gemini there are enough other good images or get a Gemini with the timebomb removed.
