The Kuro/HG-WR is identical to our older HG Kuro, but now has a small, external switching power supply. This power supply allows it to work with 110V and 220V electrical systems. The unit still ships with an American/Japanese two-prong adapter cord, so you will need a prong adapter if this is not your standard. However, you will NOT need a transformer. These new Kuros will run anywhere on Earth (except Antarctica -- the Kuros get distracted with penguins)

The Kurobox/Pro is the latest Kuro from Buffalo/Revolution. The Pro is an ARM-based Linux computer that has more hardware expandability than you can shake a stick at. From it's 256MB of onboard flash to its PCI Express port, the Kuro's got you covered for your next hacking project. NOTE: ALL KURO/PRO'S SHIPPING NOW HAVE 110/240V SWITCHING POWER SUPPLIES AND US/JP 2-PRONG ADAPTERS. Plug adapters will be needed for foreign standards.
