    Is there an advantage from buying from the US or Japan and do the models vary at all?

    When is the UK AE300 available?

    Where did you buy your 300 from and do you recommend the supplier?

    Many thanks
    Matt :)

    The biggest difference between the US and Japanese model as far as I can tell is cosmetic. The U300 is grey the AE300 is shiny silver ;) .

    The Japanese model also has the 'D4' component connector but this is no use in the UK really.

    The UK model will have a SCART socket so it may be worth waiting if this is particularly important to you.

    Until we know the UK pricing it's hard to make much of a call on whether or not importing is really worth it or not :)

    Being impatient I got mine from PriceJapan who are pretty much fantastic. £1300 on the credit card via PayPal +vat when DHL catch up with me :). So the UK model is going to retail at £1500-£1600 there won't be much point importing at that point.

    As for when in the UK, well that's a good question :)

    Thanks Jon

    So if the UK model adds a SCART connection (which I won't use over S-video I think) does it retain both VGA and DVI connectors???

    Many thanks
    Matt :)
