Screenplay 5700 Import Question



I'm hoping someone can answer a question for me.

I have just ordered a Screenplay 5700 from the States, it says in the specification that the voltage is from 100v - 240v so I assume it will work ok on uk mains, does this mean that all I have to do is change the plug on the mains lead or is it more complicated than that?

Also does anyone know whether screenplay operate a worldwide guarantee. I assume they dont, but the discount just made importing too tempting

Hi Vorbis

if its like mine it will come with 3 mains leads each with different connectors (uk 3 pin), round 2 pin & flat 2 pin.

It also infers in the manual that the gaurantee is a worldwide one.

One useful tip is that the DVI connecor is a M1-DA1 and you will an adaptor to plug in most 'normal' DVI-D connectors into if your thinking of using this input.




You'll find the UK importer less than helpful with any warranty, he's under no legal obligation to even pass wind on your account. If you buy from the EC he is though. Buying from the states is in the end unlikely to save you much money, Customs and excise will charge you all they can, they never miss a trick on a £2k+ box.

edit. By my calculations and best US price you will save £50Read this about importing from USA


The price quoted for the PJ was $2704, which with the exhange rate import taxes and everything should work out to approximately £2000. However they have just e-mailed and told me that they are out of stock at the moment and have cancelled the order. A quick check of there website shows they have added a new link for this pj with a new price of $2756, however I'm not sure if I will re-order as this has made me wary.


i think its only worth importing if you can physically carry it home and are there often enough to take it back if there is a fault
