Hi people,
I'm looking to buy a multi format DVD recorder,
internal, black, price no object.

Would anyone care to reccommend the best make to invest in.

Thanks in advance

Dunno if its the best but I use the NEC1300A - had a few problems with it at the beginning; caused by conflict with another writer, now works fine - no problems, no coasters just does the job!

Hope it helps.

This was the problem I found when I was looking for a DVD writer to go with my Black Dell dimension, I purchased a NEC1100a{from Dell} which is NOT multi format, it is the + version and is brilliant, no coasters at all and I'm very pleased with it!!!!!!!!!!!Who needs CDRW????
