Travel and electricity: Knowing is half the battle

My wife and I are American citizens. We have always lived in the United States. In fact, it wasn’t until I was relocated by my company to the London branch that I realized the substantial differences between the measures of electricity in the U.S. versus that overseas. We had purchased several converters for our major appliances and electronics equipment and we thought we were aptly prepared to meet our electricity needs in our new home. We did not realize how wrong we were until it was too late. Several thousand dollars worth of merchandise later, we now know how important it is to shop in the right place, get the right advice and buy the right equipment. Through Overseas Best Buy, our questions were answered, we received wonderful customer service and we know that if we return to the U.S., our expensive high-tech equipment and merchandise can come home with us. Our new multisystem LCD TV will play both PAL and NTSC video formats and is 110v60HZ and 220v50HZ compatible. We have also purchased a region code free DVD player with PAL to NTSC and NTSC to PAL converters that will work any place in the world and play any DVD from any country.

When you purchase electronics and tech equipment and merchandise, you are making a major investment. It is important that you shop around and learn all about what you are buying. It is equally important to receive exceptional customer service. You have to be confident that your questions will be answered thoroughly and in a timely manner. You have to be confident that your order will be filled correctly and delivered promptly. You can depend on all of this and so much more when you shop through Overseas Best Buy. Every time I watch a movie on my latest purchase – our multisystem plasma TV in our bedroom, which is also hooked up to a code free DVD player equipped to play both PAL and NTSC videos, I think about the customer service and respect I received when dealing with this company. I would recommend this company and this site to anyone who is in the market for major electronics or tech purchases. It is important to know what you are doing and Overseas Best Buy will give you the education you need to make informed, responsible decisions with your hard-earned money. After all, this equipment will be a major part of you and your family’s entertainment for several years. It just makes good economic sense, as well as common sense, to do your homework and make informed decisions.
