An opinion about Pioneer DVR-216DBK

hello guys, i would like to receive an opinion about this dvd writer
Pioneer DVR-216DBK

is it a different version of the dvr-216d? or just a rebranding?
btw, some1 has already tried this (i think) new dvd burner?

i would like to buy it in order to substitute my optiarc ad-7173s which, during the playback of dvds, is very noisy, even if i try via software to reduce its reading speed (eg with anydvd)
i will use my new dvd-writer with mcc03rg20 and mcc04, both from verbatim.
i hope i didn’t choose the wrong section of the forum for this question.

thanx

I may be wrong but I think the only difference is that one has a black face, you can find out all the info and burner reviews and so forth in the Asus/ Pioneer burner forum
