It will work in the US.
What GuardianFox observes is that the recorded footage will be incompatible with US TVs as they use a different colour encoding (NTSC).
That is unless you can change settings.

If it records into DVD-RW disks, its odds on its an AVI format which isn't dependent on PAL/NTSC/SECAM anyway.

AVI is uncompressed, the machine probably uses some form of encoding. But the output from the machine will be something else. If you connect with composite video I don't see a problem (like you say)
