Fake or Genuine Hikvision DS-2CD2742FWD-I

Postby sub101uk » Sun Sep 10, 2017 8:53 pm

For over 3 months I have been looking on Ebay for Genuine Hikvision DS-2CD2742FWD-I so far I have bought 2 however both of them had to be returned due to not working .

My system is about 18 months old and have 3 x DS-2CD2742FWD-I and 3 x DS-2CD2T42-I5 and 1 x DS-2CD2642FWD-I or the past 18 months I have replaced 2 x DS-2CD2T42-I5 with DS-2CD2742FWD-I however over the past 3 months I have bought 2 more Hikvision DS-2CD2742FWD-I and every one has not worked it all lights up but when you check on the camera menu there is no model number or firmware plus when you try to make any attempt to upgrade all you get is " ATTENTION " Current extermal storge does not exist or is damaged . Please check and refresh the list .

Both of the sellers of these cameras have told me that both cameras came from the main Hikvision dealer and that there genuine one even sent me a picture from the camera telling me he used the hikvision SADP tool to get this camera to work . As far as I know these cameras are plug and play thats what there set up in the menu any thoughts from any body REALor FAKE all I know is every time I send them it cost me £11.00 postage
