Current DVD burners without riplock?

I’m in the process of building a new PC. I intend to backup my DVD collection using this PC and I was wondering which DVD burners commonly available in North America at this time have not been “riplocked” (or alternately, which burners have a riplock which is easily defeatable).

One burner that I’ve been looking at which seems to have gotten a lot of praise in these forums is the Samsung SH-S203B. Is this model riplocked?
