CDR-King Under Siege
Tuesday, February 05, 2008

ADVERTISEMENTS


Captain's Log Stardate -315098.21



I love CDR-King. Most of my computer stuffs came from them. From my optical mouse, card reader, memory cards, hard disk enclosures, KVM switch, massager, lights, PlayStation to PC controller ports, and blank media discs, they're all bought from CDR-King. Why? Because they're all dirt cheap compared to other stores.

Their quality is really good. Example, my laptop's optical mouse. I bought that last October 2005 and it's still working today despite being used 12 hours everyday during the whole of 2006.

I bought my first CDR-King product in 2001 (or was that 2002?). It was an unbranded CD-R and I got 25pcs for about P12 each from their outlet near Quiapo church. I believe that it was their only branch that time and the only products they carry were unbranded CD-Rs. Today, you could see their stalls almost everywhere and their product lineup expanded from CD-Rs to mp3s and other computer gadgets.

2 weeks ago, I bought a CDR-King wireless router and a wireless USB dongle for my grandfather. P1380 and P680 respectively. The router is P2120 cheaper than my Linksys WRT54G but you wouldn't notice any difference on performance and stability.



Now my favorite store is being targeted by the Optical Media Board or OMB. Why CDR-King? Why? *points to photo above*

OMB orders CD-R King to pay P1.5M for illegal importation

By Erwin Oliva
INQUIRER.net

MANILA, Philippines -- The Optical Media Board (OMB) has ordered CD-R King, one of the country’s biggest suppliers of optical media and related technology products, to pay P1.5 million in administrative penalties.

This was after the OMB, through the Bureau of Customs, found that the company was allegedly importing optical media discs without proper import permits from the agency, according to Cyrus Valenzuela, officer-in-charge of legal service division of OMB, in an interview.

The OMB has asked the CD-R King to produce a report of optical media discs they have brought into the country.

“They were ordered to give their inventory for the past three years The law requires them to maintain inventory of up to five years,” the government executive said.

The Bureau of Customs seized optical media discs on January 21 allegedly being imported by CD-R King, which OMB later found to be lacking proper import permits.

Coincidentally, OMB has recently conducted its “validation inspection” to verify a tip it received that the same company was using unlicensed software in its operations in the country.

At least 20 agents of the OMB were sent to branches of CD-R King, namely SM Fairview, Park Square, MRT Ayala Station, Starmall, SM Marilao, Trinoma, SM Megamall and SM Valenzuela.
