my minix is original or fake

    Hello everyone,
    So I bought on ebay a "minix neo x7 mini" and only then through this forum, I discovered that there are so many fakes around.
    So I would like to know how can I tell if my object is original or a fake. For example if you place the serial number, can someone tell me something. Or there are details that indicate the authenticity of my minix?
    Thank You

    Return on the subject:

    do you think the fact of being able to successfully upgrade to version "NEO X7 mini firmware 011 (June 2014)" means that the Minix is original, right?

    POINT 32: " our packaging for the MINIX NEO Series include a unique MINIX hologram, in addition to a specific serial number for your device".

    On the box I find all these details, but in the end, how do you know if the serial number is genuine?

    If you get the Hologram in the box it should be an official.
    Everything is working well ? So what else ?

    It all works well, they are also able to update it with firmware 011. I just wanted to be sure that my object was authentic.

    Thank You

    What if there is no MINIX hologram on the packaging? ... FAKE? :(

    From what you read on the faq of minix seems that the presence of the hologram is important:
