As a suggestion. NEC drives are generally better +R burners than -R. It has lessened by the degree over the years with new drive releases (for example the 1300a was infinitely better at +R than -R, as it was a pretty bad -R burner).
But one suggestion if you wish to use your disks in your standalone living room dvd player is why not flash your current NEC drive with a bitsetting firmware. This will allow your DVD+R disks to have their booktype changed to DVD-Rom making them even more compatible with standalones and game consoles than -R's.
Also +R disks are generally better technology wise. (there is an extremely detailed and complecated thread somewhere here on CDfreaks explaining the differences between -R and +R and why +R is infinitely better).
But if you do want to get a good -R burner then the LG is an excelllent choice. The Pioneer DVR-111D DVD is another good -R burner too.
The NEC's and Benq's are however as far as i have read over the years generally much better +R burners than -R.
