Practically every single model/brand is compatible.

IMO Pioneer is the most reliable.

Yeah I have a Pioneer too. They are considered one of the best burners (try to burn at a slow speed no matter which brand you buy). But Pioneers is one of the worst readers you can buy so you might want a 2nd drive in your computer if you looking for a good reader.
There is a website called cdfreaks.com that has forums and reviews of drives. BUT NOTE: they push their drives to the absolute max and rate it more on how well they do when pushed to the max rather than burning at more normal speeds... like most consumers would. (they are the "over-clockers" of drives)

In short I confirm with the other post--> 99.99999999% of burners sold in the USA are compatible with any hardware you buy.

Maybe a better question is: Is there a brand that works best with _______________ ?(fill in blank with a NLE/ authoring software)
answer: most manufactures have a list of possible incompatible burners with their program. (I suspect it is a very short list, and are less commonly sold drives). Or a list of 'tested' drives known to work. (in this day-n-age I suspect those lists are more about 64bit than 32bit operation.)
