Question

Samsung LE40C750 bought in UK can I use it in Canada?

I recently bought a Samsung LE40C750 in the UK. On the back panel it says AC 100-240V 50/60 Hz 190W. It has a standard plug with no transformer (makes a terrible crackling sound when connecting to the TV!). I have just been offered a job in Canada, and want to know if it's worth taking with me or ebaying in England.

1. Will it work with a standard plug adaptor or do I need a transformer?
2. The model was only launched last year so I assume it's easy to input an NTSC signal rather than PAL?

Any tips or answers, most welcome.

Model numbers can vary based on regions, and there's a reason different regions have different models.

Thanks for that HDTech. I've read the manual a bit more, and it says NTSC or PAL, and the back panel says 100V-240V...think I might take my chances!
