I can change plan and send a F8500 as it can do 50Hz for sure
One thing I just remember that I sent a PS3 Display monitor overthere, my family is using it as a TV, they told me picture is just fine no issues no stuttering, and it displays 60Hz only ( I double checked with them with the laptop hdmi method)
I realise now that it's been specified, that you are trying to do it because you've obv spent a chunk of change on the OLED model. What like $5K? In that case given all the issues with compatibility, If it were me I'd just sell it. I'd still most def question hauling a plasma to Europe. As was said already weight and fragility would have to be considered.
No kidding Europe is a diff story with pricing. Still in scheme of things you can still find a TV there at price that won't break the bank. You might have to step back a tad from the buying power you have in the US, but you can still get a decent TV though that's not a heap of sh*t. Would help to know where in the large expanse of Europe you're actually going as well. Of course prices can vary country to country with the UK being of course a shocker and I'd probably go back on what I just said about pricing as historically they have been the worst bar none.
I have to agree strongly with sneals2000 regarding judder. I deal with it when watching TV content from diff regions via HTPC regularly. I immediately check the native framerate when I see it. Quite often I've got to switch the videocard rez over to the suitable framerate. This is always the case, no exception with 50Hz material.

Generous company. My company occasionally has to move execs interstate and I know we don't take kindly to big relocation bills. I know if I was contemplating shipping and reshipping of TV's in this day and age, I'd seriously be considering how outdated the TV would be by the time I got it home. Given I can easily swap out my living room and bedroom TV's every 18 months (less in the case of the 55XBR850A 4K I replaced my 55HX850 with), I couldn't see sending any TV in my house further than somewhere in this country.
