Recommendations for M-Disc BD burner?

    I'm aware which drives can burn M-Discs, but I haven't found much info on the difference in write quality. Is this a non-issue with M-Discs? I have shortlisted the Asus BW-16D1HT and some Pioneer drives. The Pioneer drives seem to have the edge for writing to dye-based discs, and I wondered if that would also be the case with M-Dics. I'm aware that Pioneer drives can't write DVD M-Discs.

    To answer my own question, it seems unlike DVD M-Discs, BD M-Disc's are regular archive-quality BDs branded with the recognizable name under licence. As such all the same surface quality issues are relevant and Pioneer still performs extremely well.
