I’m planning the purchase of a LiteOn SHM-165P6SX External DVD Writer, but apparently it is not available in France. I was also planning to order some DVDs on svp.co.uk, and saw that they had this particular drive in stock for a good price. From what I’ve read there is no difference in the voltage or electric current between France and UK, so the only thing I would need to operate the drive would be a plug converter (please correct me if I’m wrong). So the main issue that remains is the warranty: do you know if, in the case i need my drive serviced, LiteOn France would accept to apply the warranty though my drive would be from the UK? Otherwise, how does svp.co.uk handle the warranty issues, especially what shipping costs do they pay/not pay?
Last, but not least, if any French members of the forum know a french store/site that i would have missed where the drive is available, I would be very gratefull (the only place i’ve found up to now is www.microchoix.com, but according to most of the reviews of the site that i have read they’re a bunch of crooks).
Thanks a lot for your help!
