BenQ or Philips (all other things being equal)

Is there any reason to prefer a BenQ burner to the equivalent Philips model (or vice versa) if the price is similar? Is firmware and/or tool support better for one or the other?


To my knowledge, the BenQ has a slightly broader range of supported media (but don’t quote me on that; I need to verify it); however, I think that’s the only difference between the Philips 8631 and BenQ1620 (I can’t speak for the 1640).
