Default Cache on DVD burners

I found a sweet burner for a friend that has 8M of cache for $150, but there is also a burner for $80 with the same times and a cache of 2M. Is it worth it to buy the more expensive one? I guess my question boils down to this: how much does cache on dvd-burners really matter?

it's doesn't really matter that much, unless your burning some movies that have some serious encoding or compressing. the cache is used in programs for the error corrections. 2mb is most of the time adaquate...
