Can confirm this - picked up a couple recently to use in systems with dead lasers, both had the 34 chip despite being pictured with the 32. Both from different sellers. False advertising, well of course! Crystals on the back of the board correct at least.
Also the cut-down connectors they are using on these ‘5.15b’ boards are a bit hit and miss, one needed some careful positioning to work properly. Not sure why they make them this way when the correct connector is available and hardly expensive.
I know it’s a touchy subject for some, but really I’d stick with toughing it out and buying an original if you use the Dreamcast a decent amount. But maybe that’s just me.
