Thread: Dvd+r Or Dvd-r?

  1. #1
    I've just bought myself a new DVD-/+RW (compatible with both + and - R/RW's) and I'm wondering which is the best type of DVD media to buy. This is just asking for your personal opinions and preference more than anything else. I'll go for the one that the most people found the best for results as the cost is nearly the same so that isn't an issue.

    Cheers.

    for me dvd-rs, cheaper, more compatible and of course is the only type which will work on my dvd burne but still i would go for these even if i could burn +'s.

    but then why do people use +r?

    A few more features (such as lossless linking, whatever that may be) with +r format. A lot of the -r manufacturers seem to be the ones producing dual format writers, maybe that is a sign that +r is going to be the main standard in the future, and they don&#39;t want to be left out.

    But for the time being -r is still slightly cheaper, but not by much.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    It looks like I might be buying some -R DVD discs then. Thanks for the input guys.

    I think the +r vs. -r is going to be a battle like the 8-track vs. tape cassette

    In the end, I think the +r is going to win because its has more features.... but its gonna be a price war until one of the two wins
