There was another thread about these a while back. Here's what I found with a few google searches:

It looks like there is very little difference between the performance of the LG WH10LS30 and Plextor PX-B940SA (a.k.a., Pioneer BDR-205).

It looks like the Pioneer/Plextor may have a slight edge writing to some BD-R media (less than 10% difference between the drives), with the LG being slightly faster writing to BD-RE media.

Both drives are much faster than the older 8x drives. See this Pioneer BDR-2203 for comparison:
