Evidentally the Sony and Pioneer units can write data at 4X, but will only scribe video at 2X. I was tempted at under 300 USD, but not for 2x video, I already have that.

shant,

You mean the A05? I've been thinking of picking it up for the holidays, and while I'm a bit disappointed to hear of this, it probably won't prevent me from purchasing it.

The A05 and the Sony DVD-r +r drive, yes.

The Sony is attractive in that the do not require precoded disks to attain 2x and 4x speeds. The standard 4 dollar Sony DVD-r will suffice for 4x writes, not so with the Pioneer. That alone has piqued my interest.
