DVD Hardware - DVD Burner and DVD Writer (+RW -RW)

Six years have passed since DVD format battle between the DVD Forum and the DVD+RW Alliance started. In one corner, the DVD Forum (backed by Panasonic, Pioneer, Toshiba, and others) continues to work feverishly to promote its DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD-RAM recordable-DVD formats. In the other, the rival DVD+RW Alliance (Sony, Philips, and others) is poised to give the Forum stiff competition. A lot of money and power is at stake, depending on who wins this batter.

And now, we are starting to see Dual Layer/Double Layer DVD burners hit the market.  This now gives thee the ability to record 8.5GB of information on one DVD! You no longer need two or more blank DVDs to backup movies, videos, music and data!

Luckily, as these two camps battle it, consumers are seeing multi-format DVD burns being offered for, and so are not being caught in the crossfire.  Below are the top-selling multi-format DVD writers from Sony and Plextor.
