    How to determine if a HP good is a grey import?

    Just a quick query, I just want to know how I would go about determining if a HP item is actually a grey import or not?

    For example, what if some switches were to arrive with only european style power cables and no UK cables. Would that indicate something?

    And also, what's the effect of having a grey import, if it were to be one?

    Use the warrenty checker on the hp site which should show the reigon of the product. I think it depends on the level of warrenty but one result could be a non-enforcable warrenty.

    Ok, cool. Seems the warranty is fine, which i'd expect as a warranty is legal across the EU regardless of which country it is from.

    So, just that these 2 items don't have a UK plug.

    Phone up HP and ask them they are usually helpful on these matters.
