    Here is an even a simpler solution, don't buy a dstt.

    @iritegood, this is why I know that the first one is fake.

    Bought mine there, don't know if it's legit, looks like it. Hasn't failed me in the last 6 months, and that, imho, is more than enough for 6 bucks if you ask me.

    I bough fake one, does not match hardware but works with Dstt official firmware. Came in a box, card came with a card holder, DSTT card held together differently than official one came with reader. Weirdly enough, I like the fake one better!! it comes in a better and stronger case.
    Currently have 3 Fake DSTTs and Two Real ones.

    Tanas is absolutely right about the fake and real one.

    This is the real one (buy me!)

    "and i besides... its only like $7...

    So you should try both, two meals skipped!!

    Guys all DSTT cards from DX are real, iv had one or two ordered and all checked out 100% genuine!

    It even says in the discription that these cards are genuine , some other makes of card are not genuine but DSTT is good to go :-)

    The answer is both. They ship fakes sometimes. But they will always replace it for you if it's fake.

    First stop saying fake they are CLONE. anyways i have ordered many dstts at DX (like 15) over time. and i have got clones and real and to say the truth the best card i have ordered is the CNDSTT because they the test detector gets them as true dstt (They are real clones lol) and the microSD card dont stick out like real DSTT (its anoying).
    Nevertheless if you get a clone and screw it with fake killer kernel you can fix it anyway.

    actually, they are the dstt's that arnt made by the genuine team and say DSTT on them, are fakes, they havent been totally cloned 1:1, if they where, the dstt team wouldnt be able to detect the fakes and brick them [​IMG]

    It'll stop working.
    You can recover it though.
