    I've just got one and it's a great remote. It uses 4 x AA batteries so a USA model should be fine, although if it goes wrong you may have problems with the warranty.
    Try http://www.universalremoteseurope.com/ who are the official importers of this remote to compare prices.

    Thanks for the reply Norman, I Have been offered one for $220 which is a good price about £125 so this is why i am interested in getting one from the USA, But Am i right in saying there is a base station for it or is it just a holder for it to sit in?

    My didn't come with a base station (I don't think one exists), but it was supplied with the RF receiver unit (which I need).
    I'm not sure the MX-800 is sold as a stand alone unit in Europe.

    I was going to give that eBay chappie a go as I'd like the RF features that my MX700 is missing.

    I'd be interested to hear how you get on if you buy from him.

    Cheers, Lee

    BTW I think that the MX700/MX800 is a fantastic little remote, dead easy to program and use and not bad on batteries either.

    The only thing that is putting me off buying this from him is simple, Every time I email him and ask a few questions I get no response, This is a little upsetting and you can not help but think is he reliable.

    Hmmm...that is a bit worrying...damn tempting price though = the cheapest I've found it in the UK is £300 :eek:

    I'll ask him a question too and see if he replies to that.

    Cheers, Lee

    Actually I did :eek:

    I only got around to it the other day and he replied the next day.

    Here's what I asked him

    And here's his brief reply...in full :D

    The only problem is now that he does not accept PayPal fron international bidders...only Western Union Auction Payments.

    I think I am going to give it a miss and get one from FPS Gamer at full price.

    What do you think ?

    Cheers, Lee
