DVD-RW (DVD ReWritable): A rewritable DVD format, introduced by Pioneer, that is similar to DVD+RW, but its capability to work as a random access device is not as good as +RW. It has a read-write capacity of 4.7 GB.

DVD+RW (DVD ReWritable): Developed in cooperation by Hewlett-Packard, Mitsubishi Chemical, Philips, Ricoh, Sony and Yamaha, it is the only rewritable format that provides full, non-cartridge, compatibility with existing DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM drives for both real-time video recording and random data recording across PC and entertainment applications.

So would you ditch Pioneer DVR-104 for the Hewlett Packard DVD-Writer DVD100i ?

Yea, DVD+RW definitly seems to be superior.
