Sometimes burning your favorite movies on DVD is a good thing. It can be a slippery, confusing slope, so Sonic and Pioneer have teamed up to make it a no-brainer with a pair of new DVD/CD computer writers.

Pioneer’s internal DVR-2920Q and external DVR-X162Q each feature Sonic’s Qflix technology, which allows users to burn movies downloaded from the CinemaNow site. Each one also includes Roxio’s Venue software, as well as Roxio CinePlayer and Easy CD & DVD Burning software.

“With more and more Hollywood hits, television shows and independent movies becoming available in the near future, our burners will also provide consumers a convenient method to expand their disc libraries without the long search time and footwork,” says Steven Cohn, Pioneer’s director of optical sales.

Pioneer will start selling the internal DVR-2920Q this month for $69.99. The external DVR-X162Q will pop up next month for $114.99. Pioneer isn’t the only company packing Qflix into its products, though. Dell introduced a bundle option on its Inspiron, Studio and XPS laptops last month.
