I have to choose between

This is primarily for dvd burning…could care less about cd burning.
I have to chose betwene the lite-on LDW-851S or the Pioneer DVR-A07USPK for the same price give or take a buck. I am leaning toards pioneer seems like it is all around a better drive but want some pros advice first

I’m not a pro but I’d buy DVR-A07 instead of LDW-851S if they cost nearly same. But where I live, I have to pay twice as much for A07 as what I have to pay for an 8x-speed Lite-On DVD writer.
