Default Suggestions for external DVD-R drive for Mac laptop?

Looking to pick up an external dvd-r drive for a mac G4 powerbook. For basic home use, so it doesn't need to be top of the line. Something around $120 or less. What would you guys recommend?

I've noticed many of the drives list a windows OS, does it really matter for this type of thing? I've used other windows OS listed USB interface hardware before and it works.
