I'm in a country that uses UK power system (ie 220-240V).

I'm looking at Brother MFC-J480DW & MFC-J680DW which is
selling for about US$143 & US$168 here while in eBay, they're
listed for US$94 to US$110 in eBay:

Our local Brother says the eBay units are under Brother USA's warranty
(not international warranty) & uses 110-120V & local Brother can't service
them in the event of faults.

I ever bought US electronics & use converter but in most cases, the equipment
got burnt or don't last long (eg: bladeless fan & white noise generator).   Should
I take the chance with Brother MFCs or has anyone tried them in a UK-power
system country before with good success?
