Something you should know about this deal:
the pricing for 500pcs is as low as $0.75ea, and that is it's $0.04 USD cheaper then what Ritek is wholeselling their media to.
So, speaking as the person responsible for making the company I work for a distributor for Ritek, I am utterly appalled that they are selling us media at $0.79 USDea when we buy thousands upon thousands, and yet they give meritline such a good price that they can afford to sell DVD-Rs for $0.04 USD below our own cost from Ritek direct? at only 500pcs?!?!
All I can say is, that had better as hell be them flogging 'B' and 'C' grade and not telling people, or there's going to be one less Ritek distributor in the world. I'm going to make sure all the other distributors I know of are aware of this as well.
This is *not* the first time Ritek has done this!
I'm rather personally ticked off about this too, since I've worked with Ritek for over 2 years, helping them get better support in Canada, and a few other business related things. This is a slap in the face of everything I've done for them!
