The Sony DRU500A is a great drive for the fact that if you have a v1-4 ps2, you can record games to DVD-RW, while still enjoying the benefits of DVD+RW, which I think is a great format for DVD movies.
I have a HP DVD Writer 200i DVD+RW drive, I believe they may come in black, not sure, but it does everything you were mentioning, burns perfect DVD+R's every time. You do need a v5-7 ps2 in order to play DVD+R backups though, but if you do, they boot as good or better than DVD_RW in my opinion.
