    Pionneers are usually very good and tend to last for years with firmware updates all the time. I'm running a 109 and it can't bitset but the newer models may be able to. Your best bet is to shop and compare the various models and choose the one that you like the best.
    Oils well thats ends well.

    John, I've had great luck with Pionneer equipment myself. It seems to be the best engineered stuff for the money.

    i have a lite on SHW-160P6S-04 and i just recently learned it was dual layer, i have a few dual layer discs and i may try to burn one this evening, just to see how it works. remeber the biggest drawback to it is the cost of the disc, a standard price is 2-3 bucks a disc.
