DVD Burners. Does Brand really matter?
Im going to get hooked up with a dvd burner for $150 brand new from this guy that has a friend who works at circuit city. Now at circuit city that only have 4 brands of burners:
Philips Internal DVD+R/RW CD-R/RW Drive
Brand/Model: PHL DVDRW228
Sony Internal DVD+RW/CD-RW Drive
Brand/Model: SON DRU500A
I/O Magic Internal DVD+RW Drive
Brand/Model: IMM DRDVDRW248
Hewlett Packard DVD Writer
Brand/Model: HP DVD200I
Im not sure what brand he is going to get me but does it really matter? I know the pionner a04/a05's have certian features that aid in 1:1 copys but isnt there software able to make copies even with crappy burners? I know they might not transfer all the stuff like the copy protection but im getting a messiah2 and i know that it doesnt need any kinda of patches to play so, are all the extra features of the pionner a04/a05 really needed?
