A commonly praised DVD burner in this community, seems to be the Pioneer AO4 and the newer AO5. I have not yet purchased a burner, so I can't give you any first-hand experience.

From everything I have heard, the Pioneer Ao4-5 is the way to go. It will be the one I finally buy.

I use a Sony DRU500a. It has been replaced in between by the DRU510A. It writes +R(RW) and -R(-RW).
I am very satisfied with it and it has been praised by most reviews.

I use the HP300e and have no real complaints other than most burning software is not able to detect it's higher burning speeds yet. It just came out a few months back. It comes with garbage for software, of course, but anyone reading this forum will probably have or obtain professional authoring and burning wares.

It's "+" only and I haven't found a DVD player that it has NOT worked in yet.

See my response to this thread.

Pioneer A06 should be out this month if all goes well. Besides
the Sony and the multiformat A06 there is also a multiformat
Nec burner.

I would go multiformat burner if you buy a new one. See the
thread I mention above.
