Yep. I have imported UK STE's to the U.S. on several occasions and just switching out the psu is all that is needed. Or use a step up transformer.

If using a SC1224 there is no problem at all. You might have to adjust the vertical hold so the screen doesn't roll, but otherwise they work fine with both 60 and 50hz signals.
