    I am thinking of buy a 20x Memorex multi format DVD internal recorder. Has anyone had luck or problems with the recorder? Or does anyone have other suggestions on what to buy?

    Most blank media is 16x or less, so spending a large amount of money for a little extra speed isn't good. Memorex makes decent hardware; I have one of their CD burners. LG, Samsung and Sony all make nice drives. They can be had for $30 and up from newegg.com and other sites. Get the retail kit if you can. That has the cables and software you will need. The OEM kit is drive only.

    The LG or Samsung is the best bet right now, memorex doesn't make the drives so you never know about support, most sony's are a joint effort with nec so they are relatively safe and a decent drive, firmware support is a little iffy

    I try to get a slightly older model that's been tested, the brand new ones can have issues that won;t be solved for months

    I'm new at ordering separate parts for my PC. Have you had luck ordering from geeks.com or do you do most of your purchases from newegg.com? Most of what I see from newegg.com is OEM.

    I would recommend that you go with Lite-On or LG. They are the best that I have had.
