    Im travelling over to the US soon and am looking to purchase a projector to bring back. Would be interested to know if anyone has any experience of importing.

    your no doubt going to be hit by Duty and vat when you come back through customs. you might be lucky, but be prepaired to cough up. also more than likly your warranty will be void.

    some US projectors are mofified for PAL regions like the Marantz S3, before they are shipped here.

    do as much research as you can on the model you plan to bring back, just in case...

    Duty 14%, vat 17.5% Rip off britain? No, just taxed to death. And right on cue, here's the good old Beeb on the subject.
