On the apple site it says it only burns DVD+R's...I just burned a data DVD-R. How does this work?

I noticed that mine (20" Intel Core Duo) burned 16X Memorex -R's at only 2X. That was rather disappointing, as they burn at 16X in every other drive I have, including my Mad Dog Multimedia external Firewire drive (a rebadged NEC drive inside it). Should I bother to experiment with other discs (my home players seem to like the Memorex -R's as well), or is it common to get only 2X burns with the Superdrive? I don't believe the SuperDrive will do any better than 8X, but that's still quite a bit of difference I'm seeing.
