I have been using a Pioneer DVR-106 drive since August with 4.8.
It is in a 1394 enclosure and works fine so far for doing backups
for me on both DVD-RW and CD-RW.

I am using dvdrecord to burn both DVD's and CD's.  If memory serves
me dvdrecord is based on the last open source version of cdrecord.

The only "issue" I have at the moment is that I cannot use a UDF 
file system which would be nice with DVD-RW's.  I'm sure someone
is working on it.  I've also thought of working on FreeBSD support
for it myself.

I can't comment about DVD+ because I have not used the drive for that.
