Default Which is a good DVD burner to get?

I've just been looking at the:

• Sony DWU-10A

• Sony DRU-510A

• Pioneer DVR-A05

I know the Sony is for DVD-R (4x); DVD-RW (2x); DVD+R and DVD+RW (2.4x), but DVD+R's, but does that make it prone to burning costers instead of DVD's because of putting compatabily first rather than reliability?

Which one should I go for? Should I go for another model alltogether?

Thanks for everyones help.

Here's a list of DVD burners at ebuyer if you need it.

A buddy of mine at works has a Sony DRU-510A and he loves it. He uses DVD X Copy and said that he has yet to make a coster.

You could say I've been around.

Thanks for the help Guy. I've just bought one!!

Would you know of any DVD media he recommends?

Also what's the best one to go for? DVD-R or DVD+R

Thanks again.
