    The Pioneer 106 looks reasonable and it does both -R and +R. It also burns at 4 times for the media that allows it.

    Was around £129 from Bigpockets and Blankdiskshop.

    HTH

    Good prices there.
    I use the Sony DW10A. I use +RW for testing purposes, then use 4X -R for archiving, as -R are cheaper than +R, especially the printable ones.
