Centroid Acorn

Post by Trialnterror »

I am looking at a used acorn that was bought March 2019.
Can anyone confirm if it’s rev 4 (it has leds and relays) and if I buy it used (he said its new) am I able to download the software and purchase the upgraded software? Would centroid back this if it didn’t work or something went wrong? Or would it be better to just buy a new one?

Without the serial number hard to say. I think that was a transition time from Rev 3 to Rev 4
