What pioneer 109 burner should i buy?

Im planning on buying a oem pioneer 109 burner.
i just wanted to know if there are different countries where they made the burner, and if i should look anything like “made in china” or “made in germany”.

since i beleve that this burner is sold in many different places and there are different versions of the burners.

Is it a noisy drive?

What other tips could you tell me about the burner? besides de hacked recordnow max 4.5?
does the recordnow deluxe 7.3 work fine with it?

this burner will only work with region1 dvds? there is no multiregion patch right? and there is no max rip speed unlock?
