Default DVD-R and DVD+R

I know DVD-/+RW means rewritable, but whats the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R? Is it just a different maker? Or is there quality difference?

Yeah Raffaz is right, it's pretty much the same, but there are some small differences. Quoted from about.com:
Quote:
The main functional differences between DVD-R and DVD+R are:
1) the DVD recorder's built-in defects management,
2) the way the records format and rewrite DVDs,
3) the price.
For some extensive info, check out this article:
