I am building my first custom computer and I'm wondering what is a good brand for a DVD Burner/Reader. Do I just need a burner? and if so what is a good brand?

So far I know that I will have Windows 7 Professional 64bit installed on it.
ASUS P7P55D Deluxe LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard and Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor

Plextor and Pioneer used to be the top brands for optical drives but now just any brand will do.
There's virtually no price or performance difference between a reader and a burner so if you need two drives (for direct disc copying for example) you might just as well get two burners.

I have 11 Samsung sh-s223f, average.
When running dvdinfopro, not average quality rating, sometimes very high PIFs.
Just bought Pioneer DVR-S18LBK, getting good quality burns, average 97 t 98% quality; LG (forgot brand), poor quality; Sony Optiarc AD-7241S, average quality. All burned using similar media (not the best money can buy though). After a few thousands of burns, I have to say, not all burners are equal.
