    Hello, how can you see if you have the 2017 model or the 2018? Thanks.

    For the R2 I don't think it makes any difference, for the C2 the early ones had a GPIO / SPI LCD and later ones had an HDMI LCD.

    I thought there was a 2017 model and than an updated 2018?

    Not as far as I can tell, the only upgrade was a RoboOS upgrade (Software). No hardware revisions for the R2

    Was the v2 heater bed ever sold stock with the R2? That is the only upgrade I can think of that would be a hardware revision.

    Forgot about the bed, I think that was the only upgrade, but not a 2018 model as suggested, The pogo pin board was a dumb idea.So if you actually have a connector on the bed and not just contact pads then you have the only upgrade ever done.

    I recently purchased my R2 and it does have a version 2 bed.
