The top 2 writers appear to be Plextor and Pioneer. DVD+-R does appear to be less stable than CD-R. Still, DVD-Rs are convenient so I make extra backups to made in Japan Taiyo-Yuden DVD-Rs and hope for the best [my primary backup is still to harddisk].
Every 6 months, you should randomly pick a DVD and scan it to see if read errors start to creep it. Use software like www.dvdinfopro.com to check.
(HWZ has lots of stories about 'branded' DVD-Rs becoming unreadable after a short while).

maybe Imation should placed a "BIG" "I" instead of a small "i". Only downside is CDR is only 700MB.... your 1GB card cant move all the pics to it and you will end up with tons of CDR
