FWIW, I recently procured a nice Sony DVD+RW off Amazon.com for about 
$120 or so.  Works like a charm in FreeBSD 4.x but you'll want to 
re-compile your kernel (see Handbook) to support the thing under SCSI 
for growisofs.  I'd give the model no but Amazon.com is broken at the 
moment.  Came with Nero which is nice if you've got a Windows box in 
need of burning software ...

dmesg says:
