Samsung SN-S082M Slim Drive Review

  

DVD+R/-R Double Layer writing performance and quality:


The Samsung SN-S082M supports the DVD+R DL/-R DL standard for writing Double Layer/Dual Layer discs with a size around 8.5 GB at a writing speed of 6x/4x.

For these tests we pre-authored several video clips into an image file and burned the resulting image in Nero Burning Rom. We then used the Lite-On LH-20A1P along with KProbe to test the disc’s quality; we then finally ran a read-back test on our Lite-On LH-20A1P using Nero CD-Speed.

But before we present our quality tests let’s have a look at the writing performance when burning the media with Nero 7

Our DVD Standalone device played the DVD+R DL media burned by the Samsung SN-S082M without any problems.

We would like to mention that the Cyberhome CH-DVD 402 DVD player does not support DVD-R DL playback and a test result hasn’t been added because of this.

Summary:

The Samsung SN-S082M burned DVD+R/-R DL media with excellent quality, but we have to add that we were only able to test with two high quality media.

Let’s head onto the next page where we will take a look at DVD-RAM performance….
