Re: Electronics from USA

Most appliance with motors, especially high wattage motors, would require a beefy transformer. And even then they might not work as well because of the frequency difference. (50Hz instead of 60Hz means that normal AC motors will run about 10% slower.)

I'd probably not bother, but of course it depends on just how attached you are to them and how long you are likely to be here.
