    You can buy a power converter from Maplin, if it is necessary. Many consumer electronics devices accept multiple voltage standards these days. Check the specs. Whilst your checking, make sure they accept PAL TV signals (625/576 interlaced and progressive).

    moto they would have to be very very cheap to be worth while, just be careful, and if it looks too good to be true then it probably is..........

    There will be no warranty, and possibly parts problems too. Euro screens are not such a problem, but I too would recommend keeping clear of US screens. Ask yourself 'what are they doing here', most of the answers are moderately ugly.
