Not sure about the results if we take manufacturers only.
But today you find support for DVD-RAM from most brands, and I could add to your list Sony, Plextor, HP, Asus, Samsung...maybe even more...
Sony, Asus, HP rebadge drives made by others (Lite-On, LG, Panasonic...)
maybe i should've added Samsung.
do 'real' Plextor drives do DVD-RAM? i don't remember and can't be bothered to check.
anyway LG and Panasonic have been the longest at the DVD-RAM business. i wonder if that means they are better at it.

The drivers from Panasonic offer extended functionality, but I assume native support by XP does the same (at least a kind of) and deals with the disc as if it were a HDD or a large floppy, and for those you don't consider this kind of tests even knowing you don't have the data verification phase, as offered by DVD-RAM.
that is besides the point. it's still a legetimate question to ask how good the burn is.
