Comparing brands is generalising.

It's much more accurate going by models, however,

The reason I "generally" recommend LG DVD burners over Pioneer is that they support DVD RAM, which Pioneer don't, and they are generally cheaper.

Also, the Pioneer is overrated in it's burn speed.

Pioneer, uses constant-linear velocity (Z-CLV) write strategy, which divides the disc into sections, each of which is recorded to progressively faster.

It's not until you reach the outer edges of the disc does the drive reach anywhere near full speed.

What this means is that unless you are constantly burning discs to their full capacity, there is little difference between "faster" and "slower" units, and you certainly won't notice it.

They are both excellent drives however, and a person wouldn't be making a mistake purchasing either one, but I think for the above reasons that the LG is the slightly better unit currently.
