TV encoding systems


I am right now working i China

I would like to buy a TV here, the top candidate is Samsungs LED model UA55B7000WF

I am a bit worried aboute the different systems around the world, you know PAL, NTSC and so on

My quistion is simply this: will a TV and especial the Samsung UA55B7000WF also work when I return to western Europe?

I can't give an authoritative answer on that, but the European models all begin UE. I suspect they have a different main board. I saw recently (in here?) a post from someone (who know someone) who had a TV converted from Middle-East to European model (or it could have been the other way around!) That seemed to have taken some kind of service installation.

Any television that works in one region may or may not work in a different region. These changes can vary by power plug type, voltage, tuner, and broadcast Hz, not to mention PAL and NTSC. Since these differences aren't something that the manufacturer can easily swap out (if at all), I would recommend purchasing a unit that fits your needs for the region that you're going to use it in.

Unless you know that the other region is compatible - and those can vary. If you're currently in China, I don't believe that there are many regions that share the specifications for that region.
