  • Where to Buy 220 Volt Electronics and Appliances

    220 volt electronics and appliancesIf you're planning a long-term or permanent relocation to a foreign country, you might be wondering about electronics and appliances. Where will you purchase a TV, refrigerator, washer & dryer, range, and all the essentials required to make your house feel like a home? You can chose to purchase these items after arriving at your destination, but that decision involves a lot of headache. Higher prices, small selections, and the issue of conducting business in a foreign language can make it a major hassle to find and buy what you're looking for. More often than not, you'll end up paying a higher price for a lower quality product without finding what you really wanted.
     
    Since most foreign countries utilize 220 or 240 volt electricity, it's necessary to purchase compatible 220 volt electronics and appliances when living there. The problem is that in many of these countries, the selection of products is very limited and the prices are much higher due to the smaller inventory and low sales volume. Shopping for a 6-burner Frigidaire stainless steel gas range with digital display in Thailand or India is a waste of time, and if you find one, be prepared to pay double or triple the price you'd pay in the United States. In countries where the average income is relatively low compared to North America, consumers only opt for the very basics. This usually means that the best selling models of 220 volt electronics and appliances are the cheapest and most basic models available. If you want to furnish your home with reliable, brand-name products you'll need a better solution.
     
    At 220 Electronics, we have a massive inventory of electronics and appliances specifically designed for use with 220 volt electricity.

  • 220 Volt Audio/Video Receivers for Global Use

    220 volt audio/video receiversHome theater systems have come a long way in recent years. What began as a TV with surround sound speakers and a basic audio/video receiver or equalizer has evolved into a highly versatile media system, capable of interacting with a variety of other devices and data. Just 15 years ago we used to boast about how real our surround sound seemed during an action movie. Today we can watch the movie without a disc by streaming in 4k Ultra HD over a high-speed wireless internet connection. We have Blu-ray Players with internet browsers and apps, TVs with voice control and multi-room audio controlled by centrally located audio/video receivers. We can use our smartphones to control the volume or change media from other parts of our homes and we can wirelessly send home videos to our Smart TVs for easy family viewing. We're living in an age of rapidly advancing technology and 220 volt audio/video receivers are just one of the many conveniences we're able to use for our multi-media enjoyment.
     

    What is a 220 Volt Audio/Video Receiver?

    A 220 volt audio/video receiver is the same as any other audio/video receiver with the exception that they're designed to work with any voltage. This ability is also referred to as worldwide voltage. In countries that utilize 220 or 240 volt electricity, the selection of electronics is often very limited and consumers face higher prices. To find a specific model or brand of receiver at an affordable price, many people use the internet to purchase products from abroad. However, this method poses a problem - an audio/video receiver from North America, for example, is designed to work with 120 volt electricity and isn't compatible with 220 or 240 volts electricity. The 220 volt receivers fill this void by working with any voltage, giving the buyer truly global versatility and the freedom to purchase the exact brand and model they're interested in.
     

    What Features do 220 Volt Audio/Video Receivers Have?

    All 220 volt audio/video receivers feature the same functionality as their relative non-global models. For example, the 220 Volt Yamaha RX-V681 Receiver features the same exact options and features as the 120 volt unit. The only difference is that the 220 volt version has been professionally modified by a specialty retailer to function with any voltage. You will still be able to enjoy a diverse array of media and features just as the manufacturer intended, but you'll be able to enjoy it anywhere in the world without the need for a voltage converter or transformer.
     

    Where Can I Buy a 220 Volt Audio Receiver?

    As mentioned above, 220 volt audio/video receivers are not available in major retail stores. The reason for this is because manufacturers only design these units to be used with the local voltage of where they are being sold. Players destined for North America are only compatible with 120 volt electricity. If you see a 220 volt audio/video receiver for sale online, don't assume the same model from Wal-Mart or Best Buy will work in a country with 220 volt electricity - it will not.
     
    In order to find a real 220 volt audio/video receiver with worldwide voltage, you need to shop at a specialty retailer. These are the companies that purchase the units directly from the manufacturer and then modify the hardware for dual voltage compatibility. At 220 Electronics, we do exactly that.
     
    With other 35 years of experience in global electronics and appliances - including 220 volt audio/video receivers - we know our stuff. We've helped tens of thousands of customers with their overseas relocation as well as aided with their purchases of global, multisystem and region-free electronics and appliances. Our experience and guaranteed low prices are what set us apart from our competitors. Check out our selection of 220 volt audio/video receivers today and find exactly what you need at a price you can afford.

  • Region Free 4K Blu-ray Players

    region free 4k blu-ray playersIt's been awhile since 4k technology was first introduced on the market, but it wasn't until last year that the major brands began releasing their 4k Ultra-HD Blu-ray Players. As soon as they hit the shelves, specialty retailers began selling modified, region-free versions of these popular 4k Blu-ray machines to a specialized market of travelers, movie fans and anyone looking for a universally compatible movie experience.
     

    Region Free 4k - What's the Difference?

    It might not be obvious, but Blu-ray Players are actually quite limited in how they can be used. Manufacturers produce these players to be used in the country or region where they're sold, and not much more. A North American Blu-ray player can only play North American discs, operate at 110 - 120 volts, and only be used with a North American TV. If you're living in North America, there's really no problem. However, if you travel with your player or want to purchase foreign discs online, you're going to have problems.
     
    Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players are the exact same players sold in major department stores, but they have the added benefit of global compatibility. These units are professionally modified to work with any voltage (110 - 240 volts), with any TV (whether PAL, SECAM or NTSC), and with discs from any region of the world (DVD regions 0-8 and Blu-ray regions A, B, and C) without hassle. It's a plug & play solution for using your player anywhere in the world to play any disc without using expensive converters and having a mess of extra cables.
     
    You can choose from the same popular brands and models sold by major retailers - the only difference is that the Region Free unit is a more capable player.
     

    Where to Buy a Region Free 4k Blu-ray Player

    Again, we must note that Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players are not available at major retailers, and they can only be purchased from specialty stores. There is a lot of confusion as people see region free models advertised online and then expect that all players of that model are region free. You should not buy a player unless it's specifically advertised as being region-free, and sold by a retailer who performs these modifications to 4k Blu-ray Players.
     
    With over 35 years of experience in selling international electronics and appliances, we are specialists in Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players. We stock a huge inventory of region-free players from the top brands, including high-end models from the finer names like Oppo, Denon and Pioneer. All of our players have been modified professionally and come with a warranty. They are easy to use, reliable, and can be used anywhere in the world, with any voltage, and nearly any TV. We ship anywhere in the world and best of all, we guarantee the lowest prices. Check out all of our Region Free 4k Players here and shop from the comfort of your own home.

  • Step Up vs. Step Down Voltage Converters

    step up vs step down voltage convertersIf you're moving to another country, traveling overseas, or have electronics or appliances that are not compatible with the voltage in your home, RV or boat - you're going to need to purchase a voltage converter.
     
    Voltage converters - also known as voltage transformers - are devices that do exactly what the name implies. They convert voltage up or down, making it possible to use electronics and appliances that require a voltage other than what you currently have available.
     
    There are many reasons for needing a voltage converter, including:
     
    • Moving overseas with electronics or appliances that were purchased in your home country
    • Traveling overseas for an extended period with electronics
    • Purchasing electronics or appliances from a foreign retailer
    • Using 110 or 120 volt appliances or electronics in a yacht/RV that utilizes 220 or 240 volts
    • Using specialty tools like welders which often use an operating voltage of 220 volts
     
    Whatever the reason, voltage converters make it easy to use your electronics and appliances at the voltage they were designed to be used with. Attempting to use a device at a higher or lower voltage than it was designed to be used for is dangerous and can damage your device, cause personal injury, and result in a fire.
     

    Step Up vs. Step Down Converters

    There are two main types of voltage converters available to use, Step-up and step-down. A step-up voltage converter takes the voltage up, allowing 220/240 volt devices to be used with a 110/120 volt electrical outlet. A Step-down voltage converter takes the voltage down, allowing a 110/120 volt device to be used with a 220/240 volt electrical outlet.
     
    What type of voltage converter do you need? See the examples below.
     
    Step-up Voltage Converters: Used by people from 220/240 volt countries (most european countries) who are traveling or relocating to North America (or other 110/120 volt country) with their electronics and appliances. Likewise, a step-up voltage converter can be used by anyone in North America who needs to use a 220/240 volt product.
     
    Step-down Voltage Converters: Used by people from 110/120 volt countries who are traveling or relocating to a 220/240 volt country with their electronics or appliances. Likewise, step-down converters can be used by anyone in a 220/240 volt country who needs to use a 110/120 volt product.
     
    It's actually quite simple. Step-up converters step your voltage up, while step-down converters step the voltage down. Several years ago when traveling to Europe, I brought a step-down converter with me so I could use my large computer monitor and desktop computer during an extended business stay. I plugged the unit into the 220 volt wall outlet, and it safely stepped the voltage down so I could use my system at the 120 volts it was designed for. It made life easy, and with a power strip connected to the converter I was able to use a few other 120 volt devices I had brought with including my Playstation 3. The converter was easy to use and eliminated any chase of harm or damage to my devices.
     

    Dual-Purpose Step-up/Step-down Converters

    Some people prefer to have the ability to step the voltage up and down with a single device. These people can purchase a dual-use step-up/step-down converter that is capable of bringing voltage both up or down. The dual functionality of these causes them to cost slightly more, but the difference is negligible if that's what you really need.
     

    Where to Buy a Voltage Converter

    Voltage converters can be purchased in many places, but it's important to look for a quality product. It's also important to know that the converters are rated in watts, and you need to be sure that the model you purchase is rated for sufficient wattage to handle the devices you're planning on using. Sizes range from a very low 100 volts up to 5,000 volts or more. You can learn exactly how to choose the proper voltage converter here by using our detailed buying guide.
     
    As specialists in international electronics & appliance use, we sell a complete line of voltage converters for any situation. We have multiple sizes and styles, including converters with voltage regulators to enhanced safety. You can shop our complete inventory here, from the comfort of your home. We guarantee the lowest prices and ship worldwide.

  • How and Where to Buy a Region Free Blu-ray Player

    how and where to purchase a region free blu-ray playerRecently, something came to our attention and we decided it was time to write a blog on the subject. The problem we're encountering is an increasing occurrence of frustrated consumers who contact us asking about their "Region-Free Blu-ray Player". They're usually confused and upset about their new player because it won't play discs from other regions, or because it's not region-free like they were led to believe. In this post, we'd like to clarify a few things about Region-Free Blu-ray Players. Hopefully this will reach some consumers before they make a purchase that leaves them feeling disappointed.
     

    What is a Region-Free Blu-ray Player?

    Region-Free Blu-ray Players are players that have been professionally modified for global flexibility and playback. This allows them to be used with any voltage (110 to 240 volts), with any TV (Pal/NTSC/Secam), and with Blu-ray discs or DVDs from any region in the world (Regions 0-8 and Regions A,B,C). They are very popular among travelers, people relocating overseas, or anyone who likes to purchase and play foreign discs in their home.
     
    If a unit is not capable of the above, it is NOT a region-free player. At minimum - even if it doesn't feature the global TV compatibility and worldwide voltage - a region-free player must be able to play discs from any region.
     

    How Do I Know if a Player is Region-Free?

    Here's where things get confusing. It's very important to know that region-free players are NOT available in department stores or major retailers. Wal-Mart, Best Buy, or any similar store does not stock or sell region-free players - they never have and never will. Why? Because region-free models must be professionally modified with special software and hardware. This work can only be performed AFTER a player has left the factory.
     
    Retailers of region-free players (such as ourselves) order the players in bulk from wholesalers or direct from the manufacturer. We order the same models that are stocked and sold by the department stores, with the only difference being that our units have been modified by our in-house electronics technicians. After the modifications are complete and the units are tested for functionality, they are ready to sell as a region-free unit.
     
    Again, if your player has not been removed from the box and modified by a professional technician, it is not a region-free player.
     

    Why the Confusion?

    The reason why there is so much confusion surrounding this issue is due to simple misunderstanding. People interested in buying region-free Blu-ray players usually go online to research. When they perform a web search for "region-free blu-ray player", their search yields results for region-free players. When the consumer sees a specific model they like, they usually research the model a bit deeper to compare prices or local availability. This is where he problems arise.
     
    When consumers discover that the same player (the same brand, same model number) is available at their local Best Buy or a similar store - and since they've already seen this model being sold as region-free by specialty retailers - they automatically assume that the player is region-free, which is false. The consumer will then purchase the model locally and discover that it's not region-free. This leaves many people confused, upset, irritated, and downright angry. Some even call the manufacturer directly to complain that the model is falsely advertised as region-free, which isn't true.
     
    These people are simply confused because region-free versions of the exact same player are sold by specialty retailers. What they don't realize is that 99% of the players for sale are normal, untouched, and have no region-free capability whatsoever. Honestly, it's an understandable mistake as this can be quite confusing. That's why we wrote this post!
     

    How and Where to Buy a Region-Free Blu-ray Player

    Now that you've read the section above, you know that these players can only be purchased from reputable retailers who specialize in selling the professionally modified region-free units. You also know that region-free players cannot be purchased in popular department stores because region-free players must be modified by a professional to achieve region-free functionality. So what can you do to ensure you're getting what you're looking for? It's easy - only buy your region-free unit from a retailer who specifically advertises their players as modified for global playback and functionality.
     
    We hate to toot our own horn, but with over 35 years in the business, we are one of those trusted retailers. At 220-Electronics, we sell the real deal. We carry a large variety of models from the top brand names in the industry and they're all modified for region-free playback and use. Our players feature the highest quality hardware modifications to ensure a long lifespan and flawless functionality, every time. We offer a limited warranty and we back the original manufacturer's warranty as well. We offer the guaranteed lowest prices, and we ship globally to almost any country in the world.
     

    Get Your Region-Free Blu-ray Player Today

    Now that you've learned a little something, you might be interested in purchasing your own player today. Check out our complete selection of region-free players here, and buy with confidence.
     
    Due to the extra modifications performed to these players to achieve their functionality, the prices are slightly higher than the non-modified models sold in department stores. This is to be expected. However, our high volume of sales from customers around the world allows us to present you with the lowest prices in the industry. Don't be fooled or confused about region-free blu-ray players any longer. Get yours today and strt enjoying your region-free playback.

  • 220 Volt Appliances and International Relocation Services

    220 volt appliances and international relocation servicesIf you have plans for moving overseas, it's important to know you're not alone. Millions of Americans are relocating in recent years and the numbers only continue to rise. Some are retiring and expatriating overseas, others are moving for a change in scenery and culture, and others are going for business or career opportunities. While it can seem like a humbling feat, moving overseas doesn't have to be as hard as it sounds. There are a lot of things to consider and prepare for, but that's the same with many things in life. There are also international relocation services and plenty of helpful resources that make it easier than ever to relocate to a foreign land.
     
    As specialists in 220 volt appliances and electronics, we naturally help hundreds of people each year with their decision to move overseas. We carry a large inventory of 220 volt appliances (both personal and major appliances) that are designed specifically to be used with 220 and 240 volts. This is important because most areas that are popular for relocation utilize 220 or 240 volt electricity. Rather than wasting precious time and money to shop for electronics and appliances overseas, many chose to make their purchases before they go. This eliminates the hassle of shopping in a foreign city where you may not be fluent in the language, where the selection may be abysmal, and where locals might try and overcharge you for no other reason than that they see you as a walking bank. You don't have to waste days shopping around, settling for less and going from store to store without finding what you want.
     
    Thanks to our large selection of electronics and appliances from the top brand names, it's easy to shop for everything in the same place - the comfort of your home! Our experienced relocation specialists can even help you plan your purchase by providing priceless advice and recommending products that suit your immediate needs, tastes, or budget. We'll even give you a free, no-hassle international relocation consultation. There's no obligation to buy.
     
    You might be asking how it all works, or how you make the purchase, or how you'll get your appliances overseas. We have all the answers for that and there's no need to worry. First, our associates will speak with you to get a general idea of where you're heading and what you're looking to purchase. Next, they'll direct you to our website to take a look at our inventory and help get some more ideas. Finally, they'll help you determine which products work best for you and how we can help you receive them anywhere you'd like, at any time you'd like.
     
    Many people arrange for shipping containers to take everything overseas, some do this independently and others hire companies to handle it. On the other hand, many of our customers request that we arrange for shipping directly to their destination. Some even request that all their items arrive at once, on a specific date, or that their products arrive shortly after they arrive so there's minimal time without electronics and appliances. All of this is possible, and that's why it's a good choice to get a free consultation. We can make your move easier, less stressful and hassle free. We can even make your move less expensive thanks to our guaranteed low prices. More often than not, appliances usually cost much more overseas due to the lower number of sales and smaller demand for brand name models.
     
    Save time, money, stress, and prevent regret by visiting our website today and contacting us about our products and international relocation services. We have over 35 years of experience and have served tens of thousands of customers. Your decision to do business with us will be one that you'll be very happy about. Get what you want, when you want it, anywhere in the world.

  • PAL, NTSC and SECAM: What's the Difference?

    pal ntsc and secam differenceWhen TV was first designed, there was a set of standards used to control how the information was sent from the broadcasting station to the TV, and how the TV interpreted this information into a picture on the TV screen. In North America, this standard is known as NTSC which stands for National Television Systems Committee. There are also two other types of standards used around the world; PAL (Phase Altering Line) and SECAM (Sequential Color with Memory).
     
    The systems used vary by country and/or region, but they all use one of the three standards: PAL, NTSC, or Secam. Digital cable, VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray also adhere to these color information standards. PAL TVs are only compatible with a PAL signal or other Pal components. The same is true for NTSC and SECAM. It's not possible to use a PAL TV with a NTSC Blu-ray Player or vice-versa. If you wanted to use your NTSC player to watch movies on a PAL or SECAM TV, you'd need to use an external video converter. Let's take a look at the differences betwen these three systems.
     

    NTSC

    This American Standard was the first ever used. It was developed in 1941 and re-engineered to include color in 1953. It utilizes 525 scan lines at 30 frames per second. Only 486 of the actual lines are visible on the screen while the remaining are used for synchronizing and balancing the image. NTSC's refresh rate is 60hz. NTSC is also the only system that requires a tint control on the TV
     

    PAL

    This color system uses 576 scan lines and 25 frames per second to produce the finished picture. Introduced in Europe in the 1960's, PAL was an attempt to improve on the NTSC standard and it has remained the European standard (in most cases) up until this very day. PAL has varying versions including PAL B/G and PAL I. This system has a 50hz refresh rate.
     

    SECAM

    The newest of the three color systems, SECAM was developed and released in the 60's. Mostly used in Russia, eastern Europe and Africa, SECAM utilizes the same resolution as PAL at 576 lines and 25 frames per second. This color system is the only one to use FM frequency modulation which allows it to transmit over a longer range. Like PAL, SECAM also has a 50hz refresh rate.
     
    Clearly there are differences (and similarities) between the three standard systems. Thanks to a higher frame rate, NTSC enjoys a smoother image. PAL and SECAM both use an extra scan lines and therefor have better resolution.
     

    Does it Really Matter?

    Overall, it does matter. The three systems are not compatible, which means you need to be sure your audio/video components use the same standard to be compatible with your TV and with the satellite and/or digital cable signal. There is, of course, a couple exceptions. Multisystem TVs are able of decoding all three color systems and feature tuners for each. In addition, Region Free Blu-ray & DVD Players usually come equipped with internal PAL/NTSC conversion, which allows them to be used with any TV.
     
    If you're living in the same region and using locally purchased audio/video components and accessories, there's really no need to even think about PAL, NTSC and SECAM. However, it's always nice to have a slight knowledge of how the three differ and why.

  • Multisystem Curved Screen TVs: A New Level of Depth

    multisystem curved screen tvMany of us consider our home theater to be an important part of our home. With the launch of curved "flatscreen" TVs a couple years ago, interest in this new technology spiked rather quickly. While curved screen smart TVs are not so "new" anymore, many of us don't really understand the benefits of the design. Let's take a look at what a curved screen offers, and finally, why you need to consider a Multisystem Curved Screen Smart TV.
     

    Better Depth and Immersion

    The curved screen design pulls the sides of the picture slightly closer to your eyes. This wrap-around effect helps the image seem more deep and lifelike by putting more of the image into your peripheral field of view. In some ways, it provides a look similar to 3D. While nothing is actually protruding from the screen, the picture itself is contoured towards you, delivering the increased perception of depth. Some models of curved screen TVs even have partial adjustments to the contrast in strategic areas of the screen to further improve the depth.
     

    Improved Contrast, Larger Field of View

    Due to their concave design, curved screen TVs naturally focus more light towards your eyes, improving contrast by up to 1.5 times. Flat screen TVs with the same level of contrast cannot focus the same amount of light into the eye, leaving the curved design as the definitive victor in the contrast department. The filed of view is also improved, but this is an issue of perspective. The curved screen produces the illusion of a wider screen, even if compared to an equally sized flat screen TV. A wider screen gives a larger picture, and this is what we see when viewing a curved screen.
     

    Uniformity

    The curved design seems to mesh better with the rounded shape of our eyes. The mellow curved shape provides improved sharpness and consistency, even at the edges and the very corners of the screen. With flat screen TVs, we sacrifice consistency that we never really knew we were missing. Once you try comparing a picture between a 65 or 70-inch flat screen and curved screen, it becomes quickly apparent that the curved screen delivers a better, clearer, more intense and higher focus image for our eyes.
