trx4325 -> Advice on a new Burner (3/2/2008 11:51:19 PM)

I want to get a new SATA DVD burner, preferably with a silver bezel to match my Lian-Li case.  The only three I can find in stock at reputable e-tailers with a silver bezel are an ASUS DRW-1814BLT-SL, the Pioneer DVR-212D, and the Pioneer DVR-215D.  From the reviews I've seen, I take it that either of the Pioneers is going to be superior to the ASUS, correct?  With that out of the way, which of the DVR-212D and the DVR-215D are better?  How are they different?  Or is the much-favored Samsung SH-S203B that much better than both that it would be worth it to get it even without a silver bezel?  Thanks. :)

If it helps, I'll mostly use it for ripping CDs, watching DVD movies, and burning Linux ISO's and backups.  I use mostly Sony, TDK, and Imation-branded made-in-India-or-Taiwan CDs and DVDs, which I assume are low-quality, except for occasional backups to Verbatims.
