if you buy an oem version make sure of what you will actually get (and what you require) these do not come with some extras ie software, mounting screws,cables, instructions etc

I have just installed a Panasonic DVR-108, 16x Dual layer, multi-format. Great!!!!!!!!!!!!
Available in Biege (£48.05) or Black from ebuyer, although the black one is £6.35 more!

These are oem versions so, as kspatto says you will not get everything you need!!
