Summary:

The Samsung SN-S082M produced mixed results with the tested DVD-R/RW media. Quality media, such as Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim branded Mitsubishi Chemicals manufactured DVD-R were burned with excellent quality. Lower quality media are burned with almost bad quality and they are sometimes un-usable.
