What kind of DVD burner should I get?

Copying DVDs. A friend of mine was recently burgled and lost his rather pricey DVD collection. I now fear for my own. At present, I do not have a DVD burner of any type. What are best? Computer kinds or TV kinds (ie, those double dvd decks I sometimes see on eBay)? Is there a reason to avoid either? I would for the most part just be copying DVDs and really not backing computer shit up. However, I'd like to copy the entire DVD (menus, extras, etc.). Thanks!

With those double decks, is it as easy at it seems? The computer method seems to be more hands on/time intensive. Yes? No?
Also, if you have comments or links on DVD+R vs. -R, I'd appreciate it. Googling gives me nothing but blank media sales.
And I have OS X if that affects your answer.
