I can confirm ndscardsale had authentic ps3break v1.1. I just had two of them show up last week.

21.99 plus free shipping, but expect it to take 20 days to show.

Comes in bubble bag labled Adapter.

If they had authentic ps3breaks v1.1, they were reported haveing authentic ps3break v1.0, so i'm guessing the 1.2 should be good.

Another update from their site:
Followed by PS3break V1.1, the third-generation PS3break V1.2 will be grandly launched on Oct.18.

It's more exquisite in design, more stable in performance and more reliable in quality. Undoubtedly, which will be welcomed by more and more PS3 games fanciers all over the world for its extraordinary design, superior functionality and excellent quality

The most exciting attraction is its upgrade key, more striking visual perception and more outstanding performance.

Let's wait and see its better and better performance !
