    Hi

    Any reason why I shouldn't buy a US spec projector ? I can supply 110V if thats needed, no problem. What about inputs ? Are all US spec machines NTSC ? Reason I ask is the Infocus 4805 goes for around £1000 - £1200 in the UK, but in the US they go for around $1000, thats only about £600. Seems a real bargain to me what with the exchange rate right now.

    Not saying thats the PJ I want, but if I can use a US spec machine then I can make a real saving.

    Setup will be PAL DVD player playing PAL discs.
    Scart RGB out of DVD, converted to YUV component for connection to PJ.
    JS YUV converter to be used, seems to get real good reports.

    Advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Chris.

    The US 4805 should work fine over here...you can find exact details about it's spec. by Googling.

    Hmmm, put shipping charges on and then circa 22% on top of the total cost for import duties and VAT. Then worry about a US warranty rather than European warranty...

    Hmmm, good point. Thought it sounded like a good deal. Maybe I should just stick with a UK spec machine.
