Well I wish I had researched a bit before I made this purchase. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/151023506332 ... 1716wt_954 I read in the reviews that "The original records the time on the top center of the screen with black numbers on a white background. Fakes use green numbers and write them to the side." Not Green and on the side but not at the top either. Also the price point. US$50.99 or AU$49.44 I'm right on the cusp. Guess I'll just have to wait and see. :?
