I am actually involved in the media trade and I was forwarded a link to a post, which I read, which heavily slates e-net. This is in contradiction to another post on another forum, which heavily slates Conrexx
I thought I would let you guys know whets really going on since I know both parties involved in this dispute.
Lets start with the most obvious one Conrexx is not Ritek they are a branch office which means they are just a customer for ritek along with dozens of other oems including Memorex, TDK, Verbatim, and even e-net!! They are also the owners of the brand Traxdata under licence from a company based in the cayman island which is also owned by a director of Ritek!! so effectivly Conrexx buy product from Ritek at the same price as other oems and try and sell it for a profit.
E-net was for a period of time a distributer for conrexx they bought products off them and then sold them to all the shops distributersetc. E-net where very clever they used this as an opportunity to further the brands they distribute. (If anyone actually checks e-net donâ€™t own the brand names Datawrite its owned by a holding company based in the uk. www.patent.gov.uk The brand name ridisc is actually owned by a holding company based in Taiwan and the owners of the holding company are also directors of Ritek Taiwan :), very strange But e-net do distribute all these brand)
As you can imagine as soon as e-net became a direct oem customer for Ritek conrexx where not amused e-net had just taken the whole market from them. Infact rumour has it that Richard Wong Owner of Conrexx and Shaf Rasul Owner of e-net where at the stage of a punch up. In fact both of them cast aspersions on each others parentage
E-net promptly went out and sponsored some forums and and conrexx did the same. The forums that support conrexx products turn a blind eye to e-net products getting slated ( I am not saying this is one of them butâ€¦) and the forums that e-net sponser turn a blind eye to Conrexx products getting slated. After all these Forum sponsers are in it for the Sponsership money. What has started happening now is Conrexx / E-net will get their friends and associates to post on other forums.
The fight between e-net and conrexx gets worse and worse e-net have really pulled off some coups on conrexx and conrexx have really pulled off some coups on e-net. But overall I think e-net currently have the upper hand on them.
Take Cebit this year for example. Didnâ€™t anyone think it was strange that e-net and conrexx where next to each other. If you look at a floor plan from 3 months prior to cebit e-net where at the other end of the booth from Conrexx At the show they where next to each other. Conrexx where trying to poach e-net customers and e-net where trying to poach conrexx customers.
Take whats going on in Dubai, e-net opened an office in Dubai conrexx followed suit and both compnies loose serious money competing with each other.
Take the datawrite scribbles product. www.discs.co.uk (this produced by CMC.) E-net where handing out some samples of this product to conrexx customers at cebit and to wind Richard wong up they had samples produced of a graffiti disc they are doing had in Chinese writing â€œRichard Wong Sucks C**K.â€
Now getting onto quality, this is what I know, there is not one blind bit of difference between e-net products and conrexx products when it comes to a grade Ritek products.
Both companies sell downgrade that is no secret but none of them are branded as traxdata, datasafe ridisc or datawrite. Do you honestly think either of them will ruin a mulit million dollar brand by mixing in downgrade on purpose!
This bit is pure conjecture, but it it wouldnâ€™t surprise me if conrexx are producing counterfeit e-net brands and e-net are producing counterfeit conrexx brands. Thatâ€™s why it pays to buy from an authorised reseller.
So hereâ€™s my advise donâ€™t believe what you see in a forum because its either sponsored by e-net or Conrexx.
Take advantage of the price war between the two companies.
I wont bother putting my name to this, as I donâ€™t really fancy destroying my relationship with e-net or conrexx
If anyone has any questions i will try and answer them the best i can but my reply may not be immediate i do have a business to run.
