Need versus needs

by Byron

Someone asks for a list of features in a PC. I recommend a product based on the feature list. I offer a recommendation using one of the two following phrases:

Based on your expressed need, I recommend...
Based on your expressed needs, I recommend...

Or can either expression be used correctly?
Hi Byron,

You would use your second option, needs. Here are some other variations you could also use.

Based on your needs, I would recommend you use...
Based on what you need, I would recommend...
From what you are describing, you need...
From the information you have provided, I would recommend...

Hope that helps Byron. :)
