Panasonic AE900 at £550 with 16hr on lamp


Novice Member
I've made an offer on this that has been accepted. The only problem is that the person has replied saying that the unit is at his mother's - in Italy!!!

Even if this is a geniune offer, will the unit work in the UK, voltage differences etc..?

Should I touch this with a barge-pole? :rolleyes:

Any advice on how I can check this out will be much appreciated.:lease:

Depends if it means it has 16 hours left or has only used 16 hours!

Joking aside, have a rummage around on the internet. If it's a European spec unit it'll be fine as far as power supplies go. A few places (e.g. here) seem to suggest you'll be okay voltage-wise with the U. Up to now however I thought the Euro model of the 900 was suffixed with an E. But don't trust what I've found after a few minutes, have a look around!

Be very very careful , a lot of rip-off merchants suddently reveal that the merchandise is in Italy after you've said you'll buy it . Do not use a western union money transfer. Personally I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole.

Thanks for that. The company trades mainly on ebay and has a pretty good feedback. But the person's name on the email address does not match any on the website.

I have heard of the Western Union scam and if it gets mentioned then I shall certainly not be paying any money over!!

I'll keep looking and ask a few questions.

Trading by Western Union - I think that my answer is NO THANK YOU!!!

Thanks for your replies gents and beware of these scum.

I'm not sure what you mean in your last post.:confused:
