Conclusion from HP DVD200i Review by H. G. Bryant

The most sensible choice
The DVD200i is an impressive performer and an excellent choice as a backup drive. Furthermore, DVD+R media may prove to be the most compatible DVD-recordable format. If you want or need a DVD burner today, a DVD+RW drive, such as the HP, is the sensible choice.

Hmm...I knew that ZDNET reviews were affected from the various advertisement in their magazine but this outperforms what i have seen so far:

"...A preburned DVD+R provided by HP worked in every player we tested it in, including some real antiques that wouldn't play DVD-Rs. This initial success is promising, but it's still early in the DVD+R game; we'll continue to test this disc and others we've burned ourselves in as many drives and players we can..."

Excuse me? Where are the players? Where is the test methodology? How come two same drives (Sony and HP) gets so different test results and different overall value?
