4x DVD Burner - the Next Gen

I was wondering if anyone had been following the DVD burners lately. I have been waiting until they develop a little bit, and I am thinking about putting one on my Christmas list. BUT, only if the next generation should be available soon. Does anyone know the progress of things in this market or how/where they stand? Is this a good time to buy? If so, why, and if not, when might be? Any news on a 4x DVD-R burner? Is DVD-R going to be the best format for buring movies onto DVD for wide compatibility on people's home players? What is the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R, I really have never understood this.
Thanks all!

    Me too. I'm waiting for an affordable 8x or greater DVD-R. I'll probably be waiting a good while though :frown: .
