Default Need help with monitor...

hey guys, I wanna buy my cousin a samsung monitor, but I'm buying it in canada where power is 110 and I'm taking it to Europe to him where the power is 220. So I was thinking can I just get european power cable and hook it up there ? Will the monitor still work on 220 power or is it a no go ?

also what;s the difference between the same model monitor but a different size ? is it just the size ?

19'' - SAMSUNG 906BW Black-Silver 19" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 DC - Retail

20'' - SAMSUNG 206BW Black 20" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 (DCR 3000:1) - Retail

if its in your budget i would get the 226bw. power wise, just get a converter thingy that you put on the end of your power cable

The difference is the price and the size. And yes, you can use an adapter for the monitor to convert the plugs.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
