Default DVDR/RW Burner

I am in the market to buy a new DVD R/RW burner but there seems to be so many options I don't know which way to go. I know some are + and some are - which I have no clue what that means. Which brands/types do you guys recommend me going for?

I was in the same boat as you were.... LiteON and Plextor are both good brands.... I went with a DVD+/-RW.... does


as far as what the difference is? Has to do with details regarding the way it is burned... I did some searching previously, but failed to find anything (in ENGLISH) documenting the differences between the + / - formats...
