Do a search on this topic, but here the main reasons against a US player: 1. Voltage (you need an AC transformer from 230 to 100V) 2. No PAL compability, even when it's multiregion 3. No RGB/Scart 4. No warranty 5. Shipping and custom hassles 6. Most European models can do the same, at a higher price though. Better consider an Asian model, they are mostly compatible (no Scart though) with European requirements and cheaper, too.
