So far I've had good luck with both DVD burners I've tried in FreeBSD.
One was an old Sony DRU500A and the latest one that I have in two
FreeBSD machines now is:

acd0: DVDR <LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1693S/KS04> at ata1-slave PIO4

The Sony finally died a few months ago after being in use since 2002. I
replaced it with the LITE-ON and it has been working great.
