If the product serial number is tied to the country of origin, it's possible that U.S. support will refuse to service the product or accept returns.

Now come on. Except to socialize with those kind folks, has anyone here called Dlink support?  8)

Overall you have a valid point though. Im going to wait because I buy everything from Newegg (just about), but I can see others wanting to jump the gun. I wonder if the hardware version will be different in the US launch. Do you think they are changing anything or it just red tape?

The ShareCenter line does consist of some models with divergent technical specifications for the same product/model number depending on the country of origin. . . and there are cases where firmware from the wrong region has bricked devices b/c of those differences.

Specially Wi-fi frequencies and channel usage.

Specially Wi-fi frequencies and channel usage.

Not necessarily. The wifi protocols (i.e. frequencies, channels, etc.) are based on IEEE standards, adopted by 150+ countries. Most incongruences are due to differences in component specifications that vary depending on the country of manufacture. Local component suppliers are often used to maximize cost effectiveness, rather  than shipping components globally from one central location. This strategy saves on cost, but often results in small engineering differences (e.g. a capacitor made in the U.S. may have slightly different electrical properties than one made in China) that may result in a product with region specific firmware dependencies.  :o

Considering that the FCC has a role to play in U.S. communications and sets rules regarding frequency usage, and other countries don't necessarily abide by these same rules, this opens up some differences on Wi-Fi between the U.S. and other countries.

All true.  There are some ~190+ countries on the planet, that leaves approximately 40+ countries that have their own standards. And speaking of U.S. rules/regulations, another source for product engineering differences are the safety standards and power conversion standards of different countries. The U.S. UL standards alone drive some of the engineering decisions for the NA manufacturing.

Just because products abide by IEEE standards in most countries, doesn't necessarily mean those same country keeps that section of bandwidth clean. But it seems I am attacking my own point. ::chuckle:: It all comes down a very simple concept; buyer beware.

Just picked up a dir-857 to replace my 4500, so far so good.

my dgl 4500 where the ac adapter attaches to the 4500 was screwing up, kept loosing power from an internal short or something. They are selling here for $169 CDN at best buy.
