What does it mean if a DVD burner is described as "duplication grade"

and if it is "archival"

Oh, and is true that I should avoid those sold as OEM ?

OK, on the OEM.

What is "duplication grade" and "archival" mean, when describing a DVD burner? There was no context from which to infer.
 
Duplication grade is simply a generic disc. Archival means it is rated to last much, much longer. I think the rating is like 100 years or something like that.

Sorry, didn't see that part. Go through these posts too quickly sometimes!
