Which is better?

Best Buy has the HP for $239 after rebates.

EsBuy.com has the Pioneer for $238

What would you do?

I got my hp dvd200i for $60 after rebate. It's been good so far but the media is expensive. You can find the Pioneer A04 for about $150 now. I would go with the pioneer if you plan to do a lot of burning bevause the media can be had for 1/3 the price.

My brother got the A04 for $199+100 discs for $90=289

I got the HP for $60 +100 discs for $272 = 332

He paid more upfront but it has been cheaper in the long run for him.

Until the +rw media prices go down I would go for the Pioneer -rw

I've looked everywhere and haven't been able to find a pioneer a04 for $150bucks. Do you got any links?

if by pioneer you mean hp, then yes.

dvd+r is such a better format.
