Default Anyone here have an original ICOM? (ie genuine Actica, and not a copy)

Hi all, can anyone help me with photos of what the build quality of an original one is like?
I'm more interested in the internal circuit board finish and quality and not the case so much.

Here are some photos of one I purchased recently as so called original and turned out to be a copy (with in-depth analysis comments).

I have bought a complete ICOM A+B+C with Lenovo laptop - got it shipped from Hong Kong. Never opened the casings or anything like that. The only downside was that the laptop was running a bit too slow, got some extra memory added - works now just fine (in offline mode), scans vehicles no probs. Never did any programming yet as I am still on a learning curve. The cost was roughly about 800 plus an extra 40 for the memory.
