Try to buy from the official store or from official distributors

If buying from other store check the followings

If the arduino sold less than the standard price it is fake one

1)The original Arduino's color is generally a mix of green and blue and fake one have deep blue color

2)original SMD , Fake SMD

3)Original back side , Fake backside

4)FONT: original , fake (observe the "O" in both and see the difference)

The main difference between the original and clone of arduino is the fuse.

The original uno has a gold color antifuse.

In clone ,the antifuse has a name written as 5×5 and it looks green in colour.

The fuse is located near the USB connector
