    Matshita ... isn't that the mother company of Pioneer (the US branch?)

    Matsushita is Panasonic/Technics/National.

    Pioneer is, well, Pioneer and TAD.

    Mine has a Pioneer drive. Looks like I'm in the minority. I got it when they first came out.

    Is it safe to say that all 17" Intel iMacs are Pioneer and all 20" Intel iMacs are Matsushita?

    No, mine is 17-inch and its Matshita. Mine was manufactured 2 days after Steve's keynote.

    I would start to try burning all media, i.e. DL, +-R, RW. I had a SD DOA in one and a loud SD in the one before it. The SD in mine now is nice and quiet.

    My iMac 20" rev. b has a Pioneer DVR-K05 as well, as another poster said his had as well.

    My first one was a Matsushita, but it crapped out on me right away, and Apple replaced it with this Pioneer one instead...no problems so far.
