NEC 2500 Picky with Blank media

Is it true that the NEC 2500 is more picky with DVD-r Media than the Pioneer 107D?

Is it as Picky as teh SONY drives 510A etc??

Mainly concerned with Blank DVD-r /RW media, which one is the better? Pioneer 107D or NEC 2500??

No.
Some people have reported trouble with Ritek -R, but I have not had any trouble with any ANY -R media I’ve tried.

So what will be better to get for best media compatibility?

Pioneer 107D or NEC 2500??

Media compatibility: Pioneer wins over the NEC
Write quality: NEC wins over the pioneer.

Notice that the pioneer also have some compatibility issuse with RW discs (DVD+RW and DVD-RW).
