Panasonic burner VW-BN1E...OK to buy from US ?

My question is about the Panasonic burner VW-BN1E and the Panasonic 40GB hard drive storage VW-PT2

I'm off to the Mexico in a couple of weeks and was wondering if I could get myself a bargin and bring back at least the burner at a much cheeper price($149.88 on to good old UK or does the "PAL thing" play a part on burners and hard drive storage as well.

Again I thank you in advance for your time and advice.

I think they will probably work, but I don't know for sure.

With any standard DVD burner or external HDD (that you connect to a PC), PAL/NTSC doesn't come into it. But as these devices are designed to work with specific camcorders, I can't be 100% sure. I would think they would work with either, just to avoid Panasonic having to maintain 2 different versions.
