Burnproof vs. Smartburn

I currently have a TEAC 512EB 12X CDR/W with Burnproof. I want to upgrade to a faster burner, and the Lite-On 40X looks good, but I'm worried about two things:

1. Is smartburn better than burnproof? If so, why?

2. How does the Lite-On do with PSX/PS2 isos and copies?

Burnproof, Smartburn, SafeBurn etc are all the same, only the name is different (and some can be switched off, others can't).

Actually I think there are differences between them. Some methods pause the burner while the buffer refills and then continue. Smartburn checks the CD media to determine what speed it should be written at. I don't know if Smartburn even does anything involving the buffer, we'll have to wait for someone who does know to come and finish my sentences.

SMART-BURN (Smart Monitoring & Adapting Recording Technology for BURNing) is Lite-On's solution for writing discs at the highest possible quality and speed. By determining the optimum write parameters and a running OPC (Optimum Power Calibration) the drive will determine the best strategy for the disc and will change the write speed if necessary (e.g. due to poor media quality or a working environment that has become too hot). SMART-BURN (of course) also includes a technique to prevent buffer underruns. When the drive runs out of data it will stop writing and wait until its buffer has been refilled and will then continue writing again.

There sure is a difference between burn-proof and smart-burn; Burn-Proof takes care of the buffer underun (problems) and Smart-Burn looks @ your CD-r and set the right burn speed so you can write the CD-r without probs...

No. It's just as good as BURN-Proof. PlayStation discs also shouldn't be a problem for the Lite-On drive. PS2 cannot be copied when it's a DVD disc. I have no experience with PS2 CD discs.
