    Plextor just came out with their first DVD+R drive, and PC Gamer gave it a good review...

    I would recommend getting a DVD+R/W drive, or a combo drive.

    I have a NEC 1300a which burn +R +RW -R -RW.

    I agree with CornerPocket, get a NEC DRW-NE-0ND1100A

    The new Plextor DVD Drive has the same components as the NEC, they just changed a few minor things (mostly in the firmware) and put their logo on it.

    I started looking into this and I'm gettng confused, is it just the '-' format that comes in different sizes (3.95gigs & 4.7 gigs?) and which format has cheaper disks (write once disks)? Also I've been hearing conflicting things about compatibility, people are saying that - format is more supported by crappy dvd players, but that - format has multiple ?versions? as well as general and authoring modes which make it less reliable.
    Basically does anyone with a +/- writer (or whos had both types) have any comment on which is a better buy.

    And have people had trouble with cheap dvd media not being recognised, as this seems a frequent complaint

    I would go with the Sony DRU-510AX. Nothing but good experiences with mine.
