If the disc was dodgy, verification should fail, not succeed. Those same DVD-RWs that burned AND verified under k3b failed to verify with ImgBurn. It's just not sensible to assume that a spot check will provide you with an accurate gauge of success. The discs that failed are better than 99% identical to the ISO. A spot check would've been completely useless.

I buy Verbatim, but even the best media can be bad from time to time.

I didn't lose my original copy of the Gutenberg Bible. I lost a little data. It's annoying, not a nuclear meltdown.

Glad it works for you. ImgBurn works for me while verifying discs accurately.
