Value for money and quality too. Go for this Arduino Clone.

Packaging is an important thing here as the pins and headers gets damaged easily due to pressure while in transit. See 1st picture, the cardboard box ensures that your board will reach your hand without being damaged. Looking the 2nd and 3rd picture you may think this board is original and really made in Italy but just scratch the backside white paint with your nails and see the paint coming out leaving a scratch mark(as seen on 3rd picture). 4th picture says I'm successfully running with my project of home automation. So you can buy this product without hesitation. Board is in very good condition and easily detected in Arduino software.
I've included a video in this review. Follow this. After the board reaches your hand you should test if it is in working condition and so please connect it to a usb power source(a power bank or a cellphone charger, just avoid to connect to laptop or desktop at the very first attempt) and see the LED near pin 13 blinking as per in-built program. This ensures your Arduino is okay.
