With so much competition in the consumer electronics industry, I am wondering how much grey imports are getting through to ordinary retailers. Just over a year ago, I bought a Sony micro hifi system from Currys (only cos it was a good price). I was surprised to find that the power lead actually had a european moulded plug, which then had a standard 3 pin plug fitted over it. I wondered if it could have been a 'grey import'. In the end I just forgot about it. Recently, I have bought a Sony DVPNS400 dvd and then a Sony Dav 300 from a mail order catalogue (got a very good deal). Again, both of these had moulded european plugs converted to 3 pin. Could these be 'grey imports', or is it now common practise for Sony UK to supply products like this?
