DVD writer quest

I have too many CD archives spanning 12 discs or more and I decided it is time for DVD. The object is to get one that handles 4.7/9.4 GB media, which doesn't really narrow down the list. I am still left in the dark by most manufacturers on read/write speed for each type of media, especially DVD write speed is usually unprinted.

The so-called 3rd generation writers seem good enough for my needs, I have no real use for DVD+RW and DVD+R since I don't watch TV/movies at home. So I'm looking at 3rd gen, ATAPI, and best DVD-R & DVD-RW write speed. The drives that also write CD-R/W seem interesting but the ones I've seen so far aren't worth the price difference when I already got a 16x10x40 CD burner.

Anyone help me figured this out? Thanks!
