Default Can I use this monitor in both the USA and Europe?


I purchased a SyncMaster 225BW Samsung monitor in the USA. Can I use it in Europe? On the back of the monitor I can read the following: AC 100-240 VOLT. In the USA the volt is 110 in Europe it is 220 so does this mean that this monitor can be used in both the USA and Europe?

I did the same thing. Depending upon what type of power connection it has you can either get a different cord or get a plug adapter. Make sure our plug adapter has a ground on it if your monitor has a ground plug.
