No 'CE' mark on one of them?

It's not on a sticky label, or even silk screened on the 'back' by any chance, is it?

oddly one has three cables and the other has non.. :P

but the cheap CE mark is a poor show . also one of them took a strange solder bath blocking some board holes that the other one didn't have,
one armed controls engineer, my grammar is bad but lets face it most keyboards don't suit a one armed man

goodness me, theres more in there than I thought. ;)

I was referring to the CE mark, Montala got it! the ce mark is actually on the bottom of the two of them, I hadn't noticed before :oops:

It's actually not exactly the same, both my units came from Farnell, but not at the same time.....

sure it was a good excuse to show off my two pi's :lol:

Interesting, but both of mine are from Farnell. so that doesn't explain the differance.

doesn't really matter anyway since they both have it on the bottom, thought for a moment i had got some sort of pre-production thing :lol:
