Best test method to test your media - post your results !! –
1) Choose a movie which is larger than 4.38 GB
2) Decrease the size for DVD-5 to make it just under 4489 MB, preferable for testing 4400-4489 MB. Or rip a movie with DVDDecrypter with ISO Read.
3) Burn it on your media with the indicated size, preferable the NEC-3520 burner and with the program DVDDecryptor. DVD ISO Write.
4) Choose the option verify after burning
5) Write down the end speed of the verify. Look at the speed when it goes from 99% -> 100%.
My absolute best experience is with Fujifilm with mediacode YUDEN000T02 , end verify read speed was 15.8x speed !!!
The reason I think the end read speed is important, because bad media slows down the internal data correction within the DVD writer, and thus causing a slower endspeed.

Please post me the following info:
1) Brand + mediacode
2) Size movie
3) Endspeed, for example 15x speed.
4) Brand of DVD writer
What would you expect from a DVD Writer verify test ? It tells absolutly zero. As you access the bus the speed will decrease and it will tells (at least to a few of you) that the speed was dropped so the disk is bad, though it is not the case. Verify is not for media test, but for DATA errors.
You have to use a PI/PO scanner or at least a surface scan to check for read errors. And there are at least 20 other parameters that nothing else except a CAT tester will tell you. So DVDDecrypter Verify option is worth nothing, your media/burn won't be better using it. That time you waste on the verify should be spent on a PI test that takes a half an hour (at least on Plextor or a quarter on a Benq/NEC) Also end speed deppends on READER/its firmware and lastly on media.
All my burns end up in a 16.4x read speed (I mostly overburn the disk to 4.5 GB with my Plextors) of course I use quality media, Fuji, MCC, Ricoh, TY and other dye's.
pS: Nec 3520 usually has a hard time reading the outer part of the disk at full speed, because of the huge amount of Jitter/Beta that it creates on the outer part of the disks... That is why most people have to reduce its reading speed to 14x to achieve PROPER reading at the end of the disk.
