Help Archos 5 from America, I'm from Europe, any problems?


I'm planning to buy an Archos 5 and a DVR Station (for the Archos 5). In the Netherlands I have to pay 185 euros for a 30 gb Archos 5, but (the American) Amazon sells a 250 gb Archos 5 for 250 dollars - That is equal to 174 euros!

Will I face any problems if I use the Archos in the Netherlands (for example with the adapter and DVR Station?) And is it recommended to buy an Archos from America, while I am from Europe?

I would be very grateful if any of you could answer my questions and give me some advice about this issue.

My UK power adaptor is switching (100-240v and 50/60Hz) so power should not be an issue. I seem to recall that there is an option to select PAL or NTSC video standards.
The downside might be warranty or registration issues.

Don't quote me, but I'm thinking you MIGHT have warranty issues trying to get an Archos 5 purchased in the U.S. serviced in another country. Best to check with Archos before purchasing. With as many problems as these have been having, it would be a real bummer to find out you don't have warranty coverage.
