DVD+RW has won the race. It’s now time to discuss Blu-ray vs. AOD.
Here is a list of some of the most fanatic DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD-RAM supporters:
Pioneer has DVR-A08 whose most advertised features are DVD+R DL 4x and 16x DVD+R.
Hitachi and LG jointly have GSA-4120 and GSA-4160 whose most advertised features are DVD+R DL 4x/2.4x and 16x/12x DVD+R. (DL 4x only for 4160.)
Toshiba and Samsung have TS-H552B and TS-H542A whose most advertised features are DVD+R DL 2.4x and 16x/12x DVD+R. (DL only for 552B.)
Now let’s see who’s supporting DVD-R/DVD-RW in the media industry.

They are the main manufacturers of DVD-R/-RW and DVD+R/+RW media products in Japan and Taiwan. All first-tier Taiwanese media manufacturers now concentrate on DVD+R media production because of profitability. Mitsubishi has always been DVD+R/+RW supporter. Ricoh has been the main supplier of DVD+R/DVD+RW drives and media. Pioneer stopped producing DVD-R/-RW media because they were no longer profitable enough for them.
By the way, personally, I like HDDs most for storing DivX and DVD files. I’ll get a few portable multimedia players based on 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch HDDs soon.
