Does CDR-King have a reputation problem?




My last entry about CDR-King sparked a heated debate among readers. It’s got to do with the fact that the company, which is well-known for cheap accessories and thing-a-ma-jigs, are now going into big-ticket items such as laptops, cameras, tablets and even windmills!

CDR-King started out selling blank CDs — where other stores were selling branded CDs between Php25 to Php100 a piece, CDR-King was able to sell un-branded ones to just Php5 to Php8 a pop.

The company expanded aggressively despite not going into the franchising business (apparently, all of the outlets are company owned).

The psychology behind the business model is that the items are practically disposable — they’re very cheap you can afford a percentage of the items you bought to actually NOT work out of the box. Sometimes, it is more practical to just thrown them in the trash than to spend on gas to drive back to their stores and get a replacement/warranty.

Due to its success in that front, CDR-King expanded its inventory to many other products — flash storage, networking devices, memory modules, electrical accessories, digital cameras, TVs, tablets, laptops and many more.

However, many of these items are already above the usual “affordable” bracket. In those brackets, customers are more sensitive about the brand, warranty coverage and after-sales support. The fact is — it’s very hard to put “cheap” and “reliable” as a label for a brand.

A friend, who’s into the import/trading business, tells me CDR-King has a 6% warranty provision with their suppliers from China. So for every 100 CDs they import, their Chinese suppliers give them 106 — the extra 6 is provision for possible damaged item.

So, when CDR-King went on and started selling “cheap” laptops, people became more wary about the unit and dismissed it as inferior. I think this is a reputation problem. It’s like having to convince people that 7-11 can serve a nice cup of brewed coffee which can actually beat Starbucks coffee in a blind test.

Then again, there are the thousands of customers who have had not-so-good experiences with their past purchases in one of CDR-King’s outlets. I know CDR-King is trying to improve their CSR by stating the standard warranty claims with each purchase a new customer makes.

Still, it’s a reputation that needs time to rebuild.

I think one way to measure the level of confidence people have on the CDR-King brand is survey what items they’ve bought from the stores. So what’s the most expensive item you’ve bought from CDR-King?

    I think they really do have a reputation problem. I will most certainly avoid buying expensive items from them if there are other alternatives (online stores, etc).

  2. Laurence says:

    There really need to change those impressions that build on them through time.
    BTW, so far is a USB Gaming controller for PC at Php250. So cheap! hihi :)

    • NineSwordz says:

      Yeah! In fairness, the USB gaming pads are in good working condition so far. PS2 experience in your computer! Analogs are smooth. I bought the 2 controllers in 1 USB for a cheap price.

      I also bought some CD/DVD/Dual Layer at their store but they’re ALL defective. Even the salesladies are defective! Matataray! hehe! Kaya pag dating sa comp. peripherals PC Express parin ako, kahit mouse and keyboard lang.

  3. juan jacques says:

    i bought a lot of stuff from them. from headphones/earphones that last for a month or so, universal laptop charger thats holding up since i bought it last january. wireless router thats seems to be stable even though its on 24/7. i still buy the even though they might not last long. regarding the laptop well i will rather buy a neo or an msi rather than a cd-r king laptop XD

  4. Christian says:

    Yung mga media items at cables lang katiwa-tiwala sa kanila.

    dito sa gensan city ang lakas ng cdr king.

  6. fr0stbyte says:

    I’ve had two to three discs fail for every 100 DVD-Rs that I bought from them. Then there’s the issue of longevity. I keep all my discs in binders, most of which I also bought from them.

    Buying USB thumb drives from them is hit-miss. In my case, I take care not to drop mine especially after the warranty period lapsed. If you can take care of the devices you buy from them then you should be okay.

  7. yopme09 says:

    a wireless mouse for P500 and i’m satisfied with it.

  8. Major reputation problem, yes.

  9. chi says:

    I only walk in CDR King’s stores just to buy scren protectors, flash disks, memory cards, CDRs/DVDRs and alike. I’d rather buy branded and expensive gadgets from other stores. Madalas pang kakairita tech support nila and the sales personels, kala mo alam na nila ang lahat when it comes to gadgets. tsk.

  10. rod says:

    the most expensive item I’ve bought? blank dvd

  11. Jonathan says:

    It’s a case of “you get what you pay for.” I know what to expect from CD-R King products, which isn’t all that much.

  12. jon says:

    Im my opinion their CD/DVD are the only reliable product. And in my experience 10 out of 100 pcs cd/dvd are defective.

    I would never buy expensive gadgets from them. Im using a canon 60d and I think they are selling battery grip for 2,500, cheap right? but I will never buy that cheap battery grip. I would never sacrifice my expensive gadget with a cheapy product from them.

    Soon cdr king will be a sari sari store. lahat na nandoon. i wont be surprise if they’ll be selling refrigirator, microwave oven, or even cars!

    and to think until now they are using mano-mano system. they write thier sales on a piece of paper. they can even afford to put up a POS system.

    • Fer says:

      wow, your sarcasm became a reality after a couple of years. -_-

    • Mark says:

      CDR King already offers refrigerator, microwave, and maybe soon even cars since it now sells motorcycles. By the way, they sell generator too! Priced at 3,500 pesos more or less.

  13. George says:

    I really think their after sales is poor. When you go in buying their products, they’ll be so entertaining and would assist you, but when you come back for a return, it takes them long enough to piss you before they could entertain you. Learned my lesson around 5 years ago, bought this wireless PS2 controller, didn’t work, also bought those mp3 players that were designed to last for a period of time. After the said experience, I only come there once in a while to buy CD-Rs or DVD-Rs. They give warranty, but the said warranty is surely the lifespan of the product. I almost ran into a fight with the manager of a certain branch for she refuses to replace the item that was faulty due to their mishandling.

  14. Jeric says:

    so far all things ive got from cdrking are working.. from cds, to gamepads, mouse, keyboards, and the most expensive thing i bought was a 16gb flash drive way back dec. 2008 which cost around P1,280 that time. Its the black one that does really have the cdrking brand on it, and its still working, i’m still using it on my everyday work, also use it to watch movies. 2 years and counting, so its already served me well…

  15. mr8382004 says:

    One thing I hate the store is that they don’t want to let you in when it’s just 8:45 or even 8:30 pm.
    Imagine you drive all the way from your work to the mall hoping to buy some blank discs from them knowing that the mall will close at 9:00 pm.But they refused to let you in even you beg them explaining how important you must buy the item.
    Calling the attention of their management “please change your attitude toward the closing time, let customers enter until the mall closes.”
    ps
    I’m referring to most of their SM outlets especially SM San Lazaro outlet

  16. John Sinlao says:

    I bought a CD-R King Router which costs about P990 . At First , I was pissed of with their “knowledgeable yet unable to explain” technician at SM Cubao. Yet the CD-R King management of that branch referred us to another nearby branch which is Ali Mall Cubao. The technician knew that there’s an error encoded by the CD-R King SM Cubao Technician and yet majority of the problem was from the customer(which was obviously me and he was correct). The technician of CD-R King Ali Mall Branch said that I shouldn’t put the cable to LAN rather it should be on the WAN port. He was really correct. Then he said that the CD-R King SM Cubao Technician had his own fault. Since we were using BayanDSL, the user ID should be exactly on how it was typed. He reseted the router and input on the correct case of the letters and he let me also experience on trying to reset it. We were able to reset it and it was successful. By the way the CD-R King staff in SM Cubao , Ali Mall and in Tri Noma II weren’t grumpy as some would say.

  17. John says:

    I bought a TDK headset for Php550 here at CDRKing Davao. I can’t see other TDK dealers in this part of the globe and it just turns out that they are my best option. Satisfied with the product.

    Dealing with the reputation, media items (except for their CDRKing flash disks), cables and non CDRKing items are the best. The branded (non CDRKing) DVDs that they’re selling are authentic second class media except for Verbatim which has the highest quality. However, Verbatim is no longer sold at their stores.

    The rest, idk. Might be rubbish.

  18. John says:

    I’m curious as to the quality of their LCD TVs. The price is really appealing, but the company reputation is just keeping me from getting one. I don’t expect anything much but I also don’t expect them to bonk out within a months usage.

  19. Abiel says:

    This is what I miss here… here in KSA they don’t have a CDR king store or the like. So you need to look for store that offers the devices and media that you are looking for.

    about the question.. yes similar to the AMD reputation problem, which was also featured here… they have a reputation and probably a CS Problem.

  20. Alwin says:

    The most expensive item i purchased is a USB router. But it’s not a CDR King branded item. So far it’s working fine.

    The company built an image of being “your go to store” for low-priced computer peripherals. they will definitely find it hard to attract customers for big ticket items. if they want to go that lane, they need to change gear on their imaging tactics.

  21. Noir says:

    I’ll probably buy the 40″ inch LCD in the near future and see if it lasts :D

  22. the_evil_one says:

    The most expensive thing i bought was a bluetooth hands free earpiece for a mobile phone. BWAHAHAHA 350 pesos, lucky to survive 350 minutes. Actually I avoid CD-King like the plaque; their staff are the most useless I have ever seen in any operation. Sheez, SM guys look professional in comparison. I prefer to buy my cd’s/dvd’s from office warehouse or even PC Express, more expensive but at least I don’t have to face the asswipe employees of CD-King. Would I buy laptops from CD-King. You gotta be kidding me!

  23. Lea says:

    I bought the following from CDR-King: blank CDs and DVDs, an optical mouse, a notebook cooler pad, a headset, and USB thumb drive.
    The thumb drive, I think, was the most expensive at that time, 2008. It’s still ok. the headset and the mouse are not working anymore. I wouldn’t buy anything from CDR-King that costs more than P1,000. Yes, they have a reputation problem. Also, they should improve their customer service.

  24. g says:

    I buy earphones from the them, and usually have a lifespan of maximum of 2 months. yep very disposable, but I can’t really convince myself to by those branded counterpart with 10X the price.
    Same goes with mouse. I’ve bought wifi adapter, seems to be working fine for a year now.

    But the laptops, high-end gadget will always be a no-no!! not only the build quality but the aftersale support is so questionable.

  25. 1001 says:

    there are good products in cdr king but it depends.not all

  26. Eingild says:

    Kupal lahat ng tao sa CDr King. Lakas ng loob mangsnob at magtaray sa customer kasi alam nilang sa kanila pinakamura.

  27. Anoying Frank says:

    …masusungit mga tindera sa CD-R King… lalo na yung mga hindi kagandahan… pbbbbbbbbbbbt…

  28. Nette says:

    I hate the CDR-King customer purchasing system… mano mano pa nila sinusulat ang receipt! It takes up too much time that it took me 45 minutes to buy a darned set of blank cds, (they’re the only things I buy there) and to think there were only around 7 people ahead of me sa line at that time! People were grumbling so bad and were ready to pounce on the salespeople. There were dozens of salespeople but only two people servicing/manning the line. Some people take longer kasi they buy more complicated stuff… so we poor customers behind, who just need to buy some freakin’ cds, have to wait for all the questions to be addressed pa. FRUSTRATING!

  29. milanaorly says:

    USB wifi P350 for my desktop pc.
    so far so good :)

  30. leeto says:

    for me so far so good naman ang mga nabili ko sa cdr king. nasa user na yan kung burara ka, kahit anong brand madali lang masisira

  31. BENCHmark says:

    Most expensive? Hmmm shop branded wireless router G….I think it was the very first released model in their store. At first I am having a hard time setting it up in PLDT, probably because those were the times that DSL new in PLDT, and CD-R king haven’t studied it set-up…with alot of trial and errors, I was able to set it up. Its been up and running for about 3 years I think (24/7…yep, ou hear it right, 24/7) and haven’t got any problem. :-)

    And planning to buy their shop branded Router N.

    It is very risky to buy expensive gadgets in CD-R King due to quality. But then again, that doesn’t stop me from buying from them those cheapos like CD’s, CPU fans, laptop desk, etc.

  32. Micks says:

    The most expensive I bought was a wireless router for P1,500. It’s been working for 2 years. So far so good.

    The rest of my purchases are DVDs, SD cards, and thumb drives. The usual cheap media storage items.

    With that said, I wouldn’t even consider buying big ticket items like laptops and TV from them. I’d rather pay a premium for reliable brands. Abe’s right; we can only disregard quality for price when the items are disposable.

  33. William T says:

    Personally, I would buy branded memory cards and discs from them with no reservations at all, since they are probably big enough not to risk dealing in ‘clones’.

    They also carry stuffs that are not available elsewhere, stuffs you probably see in engadget or even Yugatech, that usually is the reason I drop by CDR-King everytime I went to the mall. Not that I buy them, although once in a while, I would… That if not for CDR-King, we probably would not get hold of, or get hold of at high premium on the net or in tiangges.

    AS for house-brands electronics, I probably buy elsewhere unless it too cheap to resist or not available elsewhere.

    They really have to change their system, the lines are too long and inefficient, sometimes I would buy elsewhere because the money saved for say, a couple of discs, are negated by the long wait (time is gold, remember?).

    They should use the barcode scanners they sell!!!

  34. frederick dela cruz says:

    wireless mouse P450… still working for more than 6 months now. i will not buy anything that’s more than 500 in cdrking promise!

  35. Ryan Ang says:

    I go to cdr king for the generic stuff: power supply, avr, optical media. Some say their rechargeable batteries are great. CDR king is always great when looking for spare parts, cables, connectors and of course recordable media.

    By the way, CDR King isn’t always the cheapest, external ODD for example, as well as keyboard and mouse.

  36. manaka_junpei says:

    dibale kung makabili ka nang Blank CD/DVD, masaya na ako basta nai-store ko ang mga memories sa Disc for a long period of time, nakasalalay sa brand, malamang ang motto nang CDR King, magandang serbisyo, kahit ano meron basta may kinalaman sa computer at iba pa.

  37. nameless says:

    Buy at your own risk. I believe, everything generic from china is just the Same. They just repack everything and put brand here in the Philippines. Just like the China Phones. They actually have the same models. Some were just branded as cherry, torque, myphone etc. Just be wise and know the risk in buying these items.

  38. Matipid says:

    I hope more whiny people stop buying from CDR-King so lines will be shorter and no more irate customers who feel that the world is revolving around them

  39. Jiron says:

    Bumili ako nung gamepad na mukhang Xbox 360 controller (380 pesos). So far, okay naman. Pero parang defective yung vibration simula nang nabili ko. Namamatay yung controller kung gumagana yung parehong motors. Ilang beses na rin nahulog, maayos pa rin.

  40. Roy says:

    Most Expensive Purchase: Tomato-flashed CDR King BRanded router with USB support. Working for 24 hours, 6 days a week for 8 months now.

    Most frequent purchase: Blank dvd-r’s. at least 20% failure ate although I have suspicions that the failure might be more because of the burner than the disc.

  41. Scoobydoo says:

    Got me a CD-R King 8gb Micro-SD for my smartphone. The thing conked out after three weeks. Never again. To buy electronic things from them. I also bought a wooden laptop chiller, some parts were missing. They replaced it by getting the missing part from another package of the same model. Crazy. Why did the sales lady not just give me a new one instead of getting it from a complete package?

  42. slabster says:

    i get dvds from them almost monthly, 1% of the dvds i got from them failed (prolly 250-300 dvds)
    last item i bought was a laptop cooling pad…which i seldom use
    other than that, i won’t buy it from even thumb drives…so i guess that’s a rep problem
    i consider stuff from them as disposable

    one thing i hate most is the purchasing! it doesn’t have a system

  43. Andre says:

    The saying goes, you get what you pay for.

    They have a market definitely, theyre better off launching a seperate brand for higher end products with real warranties

    • Benchmark says:

      Probably you are right. CD-R King should have a different shop in terms of their high end products. Hmmm CD-R King PLUS? Like Shopsville PLUS hehehehe

  44. The two most expensive items I’ve got from CD-R King are the 7″ e-book reader and an emergency purchase of a 19″ external LCD monitor for my laptop.

    What, you think I’d spend a minimum of 6K for a 15″ screen when I can get 19″ for 4K? And it is a *beauty*. And yes, it will last as long as it lasts, but while it lasts, it is a wonderful thing. *smile*

    I love my e-book reader. Already I’ve read more with it than I have in ages. Video quality is pretty good, too. I think it’s worth the price.

    Have been very lucky with the CDs and DVD-R purchases, I have little to zero failures per batch (usually I buy 50pcs at a time); that may be due to my burning technique and/or drive.

    Heh, my office space is a CD-R King showcase of sorts. Stereo speakers, that gizmo that allows you to watch TV on your computer monitor; earphones, card readers, memory cards, CD markers and so on. The ones that died, died after a reasonable time frame, those that didn’t are still going strong after 2 years of usage.

  45. Ay naku says:

    We are not born yesterday! Anyone who sells very cheap items will certainly raise doubts. And I suspect that their manual pos is one of the reasons they are so cheap. Needs to be investigated!

  46. xxxxx says:

    a pair of powerline ethernet adapters and as expected it failed me after a couple of months :-( hehe

  47. Marc Yan says:

    When I think of CD-R King and expensive things just don’t work out. I’ve bought some CD’s and laptop coolers from there but anything over a few thousands pesos I go elsewhere for a trusted name. I already know where the products come from and the quality I do question.

    I rather go to a more high end place if I want gadgets with better reputation and quality plus after purchase servicing.

    I’m from Canada so my expectations are higher when it comes to buying a product. In Canada or US I can buy a product and if i dont like it i can return it within 14 days after purchase.

    The problem here is they don’t have such a policy as far as I know. That’s the downside. PLUS, the sales people never know what I’m asking for. They don’t know squat about technology or gadgets enough to sell something. People buy blindly. Sayang.

  48. jcruize057 says:

    I have bought a megabeat soundbar speaker worth Php2100 and I am so very happy with it. The one thing I don’t like about CDR King is their service. Its too slow, I could have bought the blu-ray player yesterday if the service was good but I was really turned off.

  49. John Carl says:

    Most expensive I bought was a 2-GB PQI Flash disk. Around 700 pesos. I won’t go up from that. Most CD-R King items have no approval seals from Wi-Fi(R), Bluetooth (R), etc. Meaning, most of their items did not pass their tests and regulations.

  50. goodha67 says:

    cdr king memory card reader/writer: 2 years
    ms duo adapter and 2 gig microsd : 2 years
    both are still ok and working as of this posting.

  51. Yogs says:

    The last thing i bought from them’s a mouse pad.

    I think they should seriously consider offering their big ticket items under a different brand name. What they’re doing now is just too much effort.

  52. deuts says:

    A wifi router worth P1,400 way ba ck in 2007

  53. kevinn says:

    Sometime back they sold SSDs with mediocre still speedy performance at around 4-5k cmiiw.

    But still would you bet your data on a CDR-King warranty or cheapo stuff? For other things like little laptop desks, mouse pads or even power strips, it’s fine.

  54. leo says:

    way back 2008, unang sahod ko ng may, bumili ako ng 4gb flash drive, gumagana p nman ngaun, so okei p dn, d ko lng maalala brand pero ndi cdrking, ritek ata yun, nsa 600 ata bili ko dun

  55. Apache says:

    CD-R King is the Best for sure still you need to understand different things in saying so i think all output here is correct but for most people i always ask them if you got cash to waste don’t waste it on CD-R King. for example a friend of mine ask what is a best webcam for my Old Laptop so the first thing i ask him and he said to me i got a 1000 Php to covert it and do you think CD-R King can be ok? So in your own idea you get to think “Tara CD-R King para Maka-Mura” But you really don’t get your money’s worth but then again some people cant really buy A4Tech or other branded Webcam out there so they relay on CD-R King. so before Talking to stuff like that learn to ask first i think people lack of this when it comes to technology. Disclaimers Please don’t reply on me i really don’t feel talking back if you got something to say this post if for both side.

  56. 3xcalibur says:

    I bought a 16gb thumb drive for P2200, but after a months it can’t be detected, what a waste

  57. Name: IC DeaDPiPoL says:

    8186E Wifi Router back in 2009 for P1680 = still working
    Realtek USB Wlan adapter for P680 = still working
    multitudes of TDK Gold DVD+r disc P12 = using for archiving videos
    USB TV Tuner – bought since 2008, still working albeit the bundled driver is buggy and had to use a driver from a different provider
    1st gen USB – IDE adapter = P480 – the power adapter conked out 9 days after the date of purchased and cdrking refuses to replace the power adapter or sell a replacement
    bought a 2nd gen USB – IDE later and still working (has an on-off switch at the power adapter)

    Computer Table – P1200 – completely disappointed because the instructions weren’t clear, some holes didn’t match and ended up with a somewhat working table minus the keyboard mount and loose screws

    micro SD card reader for P50 – having a hard time fitting the usb plug if a card is present in the device

    -multiple keyboards/mouse – mostly had problems with the mouse’s loosing sensor on the left click and fading keyboard letters although it states the keyboard was laser signed

  58. luiboowee says:

    16GB for Php1400 bought last January. Wala pa naman problem so far, completely happy.

    Same with the lap pillow I bought together with the cash box I bought last Christmas. May mga stuff na nakakaaliw bilhin. Parang Japan Home store itong CDR-King pero mga electronics.

    Did someone tried their USB-powered refrigerator? Yung maliit lang na ang kasya lang is softdrinks in can? hahaha!

  59. luiboowee says:

    Basahin niyo yung website nila kung bakit mura ang products na stores nila. And they have a point.

  60. vince says:

    the difference in opinion is probably due to randomness and low sample size.

    If you buy hundreds to thousands of different products from them or if you survey hundreds to thousands of customers, due to the large sample size you can get a more accurate picture.

    If however consumer A buys only a one or a few items and by chance, they all turn out to be low quality or break then consumer A will forever biased and think that cdrking sucks, not just those few products he bought but ALL products by cdrking will suck.

    If consumer B on the other hand by chance buys a few items that work (mitigating factor is that consumer B has a low budget), then consumer B will be very very happy and will be a fanboi. He will believe that ALL products by cdrking are inexpensive but work.

    If consumer A and B meet on a message board, expect flaming and popcorn.

    • Messie says:

      Good point. Not to mention that only a few satisfied customers air out their praises and/or post their commendation about the products they are happy with. While most if not all unsatisfied customers find ways where they can tell everybody of their disappointment.

  61. jhepoyski says:

    that’s why i only buy cd’s at cdr king.

  62. no_worriez says:

    if your buying cds and other cheap products then buy from cdr-king. if your buying above 1k products i suggest you get a branded one.

  63. Kapag sinabing cdr-king, cheap at disposable.

  64. Man says:

    CDR-King is so reactive kasi. They want to sell what they want to sell.

  65. Night says:

    Actually the first thing that comes to my mind when thinking about cdr king is their infamously rude sales people. Bastos kung bastos sila eh. Oo madaming masa ang bumibili sakanila na hindi maganda ang ugali pero hindi ibig sabihin na babastosin nila lahat ng customers nila. The customers may not always be right but they will always be the customers.

  66. angkarasu says:

    i don’t get disappointed when sometimes i get poor quality products from them because that is to be expected. Iniisip ko na lang chambahan lang talaga makakuha ng magandang quality for its price. True enough, at times I get good quality products. I’ve bought tons of stuff from them, cheap ones and even costly ones but i know the limitations =)

  67. orgl says:

    CDR King 280W PSU worth Php 480 – up and running over a year now with my amd athlon xp pc.

  68. orgl says:

    @angkarasu korek ka dyan, ako naman feed up na sa mga branded na items kasi mahal ang pag dating lang ng mga ilan months o taon eh singko isa nalang sayang ang pera at higit sa lahat nasisira din naman maski branded pa yan.

  69. mr. bogus says:

    accesories at flashdrive lang bibilin ko dito.. (kahit na non-branded o imitation man) pero pa mamaalin na…. hmmmmmm….. bumili sila ng branded at ibenta sa murang halaga…

  70. chacha says:

    Chambahan nga marked products nila, i always try to look for branded items that they sell, its better and last longer, like the branded USBs they have. i have a Kingston 2G USB and it stll works after rugged usage.

  71. Pink says:

    My dad bought my brother the 32′ inch hd tv for 12k i think, my brother was dying to have one for his ps3 gaming. turns out it was ok. well we only have the tv for a week, but he said with the hdmi thingy (I’m not that techy) He said its ok. The pictures are nice though and the quality of his games like call of duty, god of war. etc is good. Though after a week my mom told my dad that samsung had a sale 32′ inch hd for only 17k. bummer. anyways cdr doesn’t accept credit cards, only debit card or cash. But I was really against it, my dad buying the tv! Hmp.

  72. d geek says:

    i frequently buy blank CDs at cdr-king and knowing how low they can sell their items makes me anticipate encountering bugs/problems with the gadgets and accessories…so if i want a sureball, my money’s worth for investment gadgets, I save up for branded ones.

    but i do think cdr-king has another bad rep to their name and that is they have many discourteous and inattentive staff. with the snail paperwork they chose to do transactions with, i think they should be trained to be more snappy and more informative to avoid queues and lessen people reaching their high-blood boiling points.

  73. Benchmark says:

    Once I read in their site why their products are cheap:
    They don’t advertise
    Their crew doesn’t wear fancy uniform
    They don’t accept credit card
    They don’t use POS
    They buy in bulk from their suppliers
    etc. etc.

    That was before…

    I remember they even got consumers awards.

    But now, I really can’t understand why they are selling electric fans, TV, school supplies, nail files, etc.

    And have you read their Mission/Vision? I quote from their site:

    Our Vision
    “Our vision is to provide every Filipino with the latest technology at an affordable price.”
    Our Mission
    “Our mission is to be the No. 1 top media & technology provider in the Philippines that could provide the latest technology at an affordable price without extra cost and also to be able to deliver up-to-date technologies to the Philippine market with the latest computer related products as well as computer accessories.”

    I think they went overboard on selling other products.

    I once bought a Kingston 1 Gb for around 500php, that’s more than a couple of years ago. It’s still alive. But probably because it is Kingston.

    As for any CDR-KING branded item, the most expensive would be cheap temporary earphones at less than 100php. There’s no way I’ll be spending more than 150php on a CDR-KING brand item.

    Bought an Afrobeat 5.1 channel speakers with subwoofer for 1580php..so far ok naman ang output ng speakers surround sound kasi atsaka mura lang..mga one month ko palang natatry pero ok naman wala naman problema..kaso nga lang it’s dependent on the remote control pagnasira remote di mo na makocontrol ang volume ng speakers..but I think CDR-King sells a replacement remote..lahat nalang CDR-King!!!

    I purchased their pocket sized mini flashlight worth 80 pesos in fairness matibay pa din kahit lumubug sa dagat ng Puerto. :)

  79. mang inasar says:

    I have many bad experience with cdr king stores. One of the most irritating experience is when I wait for about 30 minutes knowing that the item I’m looking for is not available. Sabi lang ng sales lady “wala po kaming stock” without looking or asking someone first. I asked her to check it or if she can recommend any items with the same purpose. Nagtanong lang siya nung brand then she says “wala po”, and immediately moved to the next customer. She didn’t give me any options, I was so pissed off I never came back to that branch. Poor customer service.

    They even lessen the warranty period for their mp3/mp4 players and other items. Naalala ko when I was still in college my friend bought a 1GB mp3 player and he comes back at least once a month to get his mp3 fixed because of unit problems. It comes with 1 year warranty BEFORE. Maybe they noticed that people are coming back just to return and ask them to fix there items.

  80. Ryan says:

    Reputation problems
    rooted primarily from
    “QUALITY CONTROL/ASSURANCE”
    negligence.

    If they were only strict or even testing their products “once” on their own(not relying only on their chinese suppliers statement/documentation) I think the company might elevate their reputation by thorough screening of their distributed items.

    And also kindly shorten the warranty processing time. I bought a headset, used only for 15 days then bugged down into deep silence. It has a warranty but they told to wait for TWO MONTHS?

    WT?F!

    Do they expect some customers to smile at them and wait for that long in order to reuse again and compensate what they paid for? Give it a slack CDRKING administrators. Don’t push your luck too much coz some people’s reputation also are at stake here. Or else they might wait to face some legal issues at the DTI in the near future. Don’t pick the last straw please, for your employees sake?

    The only problem sa cd-r king ay yung mga sales lady nila na masusungit at tech guy na hindi makasagot minsan ng tama. I actually bought lots of items from this store already and most of them are still working. Sa tingin ko nasa gumagamit lang talaga yan minsan. Hehehe. I bought 2 keyboards from them 2 years ago at pareho pa ring gumagana. Pati optical mouse na tig-180 which I bought 3 years ago, gumagana pa. I also have a 2GB thumb drive which I bought a year ago, maayos na maayos pa up to now. Just a month ago, I bought their battery grip for Canon 1000D/450D/500D and I was amazed by the quality & performance. Takpan lang ng black sticker yung “CD-R KING” na brand, ayos na! Hehe. Mas sulit pa kaysa sa Phottix kasi may IR remote pa! Regarding blank DVDs naman, di talaga maiiwasan na may 1 or 2 na defective for every 10 that we buy. But stil, hindi naman siguro tayo maghihirap kung mawalan tayo ng 16 pesos for 2 defective blank dvds di ba? Oo nga pala, sa kanila lang ako nakahanap ng Display Port to HDMI adapter for my Dell E6410 laptop and it works excellently! Mura pa for 380 pesos! For me, ok ang items ng CD-R King. Let’s not rudely judge the store & their products. :)

  83. goodha67 says:

    to add, what i usually do before getting that customer number near the guard is to ask first if a particular product is available or not. so irritating to wait for an hour (especially if the store is full of waiting customers) only to be told by a tired sales lady (and minsan nakasimangot) that it is not available.

  84. Universal Soldier says:

    Bad or good reputation, tyak dito pa rin bibili ang karamihan. Its like buying a pirated DVD movie, minsan swerte, minsan malas but who will buy the original DVD movie?

  85. Edwin C says:

    Okey naman ang mga sales lady sa CDR King dito sa Cebu. Hinde naman nakasimangot. siguro diyan sa lugar niyo nakasimangot ang mga sales lady kasi ang mga customers masusungit din.

    • Night says:

      Kahit gaanu kasungit ang customer, walang karapatan na mag sungit ang staff. I own several service-oriented businesses and I know what it feels like to have rude customers but you cant do anything about it. Sila nag babayad ng kinakain ng mga staff eh.

    • Benchmark says:

      In my opinion, perhaps nasasabayan lang din ng sungit ng customer dahil they fall in line ng matagal…

      Perhaps it’s every body’s fault na lang din. Di naman siguro sila magsusungit if the customer is masungit and vice versa.

      I’ve been in different branch, (V-mall, Alimall, SM Cubao, SM Megamall, Star Mall Ortigas, Farmers, Gateway, Festival Mall, Hypermart Main, Ayala Station), hinde naman matataray yung mga nag-assist sa akin. Well I remember once, siguro wala lang sa mood, I just said “Wow mainit ulo ni ate, cool lang” and smiled at her. :-) She may never smiled back, but atleast hinde naman uminit ulo ko. Perhaps pagod lang din sila or mainit ulo dahil sa nauna nilang customers.

      For goodness sake, tao lang din naman sila. But then again, gusto lang din siguro natin na gawin nila ng maayos yung trabaho nila, the same way we are doing ours.

    • Night says:

      I understand what you are saying na tao lang din sila. May I know what industry you are working for? Kasi kung sa service industry ka, maiintindihan mo yung sinasabi ko na wala silang karapatan na mag sungit. Kung gusto nila mag sungit, wag sila mag apply ng trabaho na kakausap sila ng tao. Ang akin lang naman, bakit most of the CDR King na napuntahan ko ganun? Hindi na siguro staff ang may problem kundi yung mismong CDR King na. Bakit nila hinahayaan na ganun mga tao nila?

  86. Andre says:

    ano ba warranty nila pag laptop ang binili mo? baka naman wala? he he

    ok lang sa akin for throwaway items like mouse, keyboard or small USB flash drives ang cdr-king. pero kung seryosong produkto like laptop ie-expect mo na may warranty/support na maaasahan. otherwise, ika nga…”you get what you pay for.”

  87. vince says:

    In my area there are 2 Cdrking branches. One is in a major mall. Madaming tao sa mall and pila sa cdrking. One is in a smaller mall which I also frequent. Walang pila sa cdrking.

    Of course if possible I buy from the cdrking na walang pila

    Yung mga usb flash drives na nabili ko sa cdr-king tumatagal naman, yung huling mouse na binili ko naman ilang buwan lang sira na agad, at ang pinakamahal kong nabili ay yung stand alone TV tuner nila na hanggang ngayon gumagana pa.

    I almost bought a Kingmax external HDD for 2.3k but I had second thoughts. I think the priciest thing I bought was the laptop table worth 700. So far it hasn’t failed me. Pero the store as quite a nasty reputation on storage devices like thumb drives and external HDs

  90. chubibo says:

    being practical sometimes has its downside. buying cheap storage will give you problems soon enough. using 4gig usb flash drive as your main data storage is stupid anyway. i get all my blank cds and dvds from cdrking, not for data storage though. i get my wireless mouse there too (i go through about 2 a year). and tshirt transfer. and photo paper. most money i spent on one item was for a wireless encore router. still working. so how do i rate cdrking? for small, practically disposable stuff they are ok. but if you need rechargeable batteries, chargers, digital cameras, video cameras, etc. best to get them branded from specialty stores (if you will use them for digicams go to camera stores).

  91. Robin Lim says:

    I have bought pretty much every SD Card, MiniSD Card and MicroSD card I have owned at CDR king. PQI or Kingston. Must be 5-6 in all. So far everything worked as long as the device I bought it for was with me (1-2 years).

    I have also bought 4 or maybe 5 flash drives there… the oldest a 5 year old (I think) 256MB PQI drive is there sitting a few inches from me right now. No more cap, and a bit dented. Still works though.

    Here is the thing with cd-r king, its a store that started out as a cd retailer then a few after different accessories showed up like a ps2 and usb mouses then their store started to grow and started selling china made products from speakers to LCD TV.

    I stop buying cds from them 2 to 3 years ago when they stop selling some branded cds. I occasionally buy cheap mouse and some accessories.

    CD-R King also sells some branded memory cards like from PQI to Kingston, I just don’t if this is the real ones. I think this time to last longer but on the other hand they sell CD-R king labeled memory card which I think is as good as the branded one that they sell, obviously you get what you paid for!

    I never buy anything from this store. If you can afford to buy branded products then why buy cheap ones?

    Would you want to be seen carrying a CDR-King branded laptop? Would you want to be seen carrying a CDR-King branded bag?

    It’s like if you can afford to buy a shirt from Lacoste then why buy from Bench? (LOL)

    And a side note to other commenters, it’s a USB Flash Drive, a thumb drive, or simply a flash drive and not USB. USB is the port for crying out loud.

  106. Neil says:

    I use a lot of CDRking products. As far as quality and reliability is concerned, their products are good enough. Pwede na, ika nga. Mostly because as you have said, the products were meant to be disposable and not meant to last for a long time. And the cheap prices means that you have lower expectations.

    I think the most expensive (and least disposable) product I bought from them is a WiFi router and dongle set. It’s still working after 2 years, although setting them up is not as intuitive and may require people to jump through hoops (which is what you should expect from China/Taiwan/Korean-made tech products). So far I have no complaints with their product, the quality ranges from poor to mediocre but I wouldn’t be buying from CDRking if I was expecting high quality products.

    My biggest gripe with CDrking is their service. It’s not even the aftersales service, just the act of buying from them is a pain in the ass most of the time – masungit na staff (not saying all the staff are masungit, but most of the ones I’ve encountered are), long lines and slow processing.

  109. I only bought a mouse there once, and it only lasted for 1 month. Since then, I didn’t buy gadgets or accessories from their store. But I would still buy CDs if I need to, and keyboard protectors. But with the long line always present in their stores, I would rather go buy it somewhere.

  110. HAHAman says:

    Does CDR-King have a reputation problem?

    Oh they definitely do! =)

  115. chubibo says:

    “reputation” in terms of customer service may vary from person to person. if one is a customer, smiles, asks politely, says thank you whenever assisted more often than not you will get better service. handling more than a hundred different people at any given time is tiring. yes, it is their job to assist you. but if you are an asshole you get shit, right? i was at the samsung store on tuesday hoping to get myself the 7 inch tab. nobody entertained me. there were about 6 or 7 of them, they were all doing some other thing and i was the only customer yet no one approached me to ask what i was there for. after sales service for jvc sucks just the same. and don’t get me started with canon! or villman. i’d rather go to my favorite cdrking outlet any time! ayaw mo ng madaming tao? podium and centris would be the best pick.

    “reputation” in terms of quality of products sold. it has been said in this discussion already – you get what you pay for. although sometimes you get a surprise.

    cdrking has paved the way for cheapos like me. branded flash drives are now more affordable, right? guess why. branded routers have adjusted prices, right? guess why. even branded blank discs are now cheaper. guess why.

  116. chx says:

    I have a question, I have been to (uhmmm) 7 or 10 CD-R King branches, 3 Here in Pampanga. From what I’ve experienced here’s my question, are all the branches you have been to, are they all using “manual” system? Like, handwritten receipt, logging every single product in a log sheet and asking someone if they have “this” and “that” product. Don’t get me wrong on this, I think it’s one HUGE reason why CD-R King has lot of customers patiently waiting.

  117. razorous says:

    I bought an IP Camera (wireless). I wanted to learn how it works and how to install one, so I first thought of CDR-King kase mura… Finally I got it working, but I also found out that the specs are a little to short for its price tag: 3k+.
    It didn’t have mobile view, and the software bundled was crap.

  118. Kent says:

    There are good products from CDRKing and there are those also which after 1 or 2 months not working anymore, hence as they saying goes “you get what you pay for” and this counts for those things like the headsets, mouse, photo paper and the worst was when I bought almost 6k PHP worth of shirt transfers – really bad. Though I got routers thru CDRKING 2-3 yrs ago which still work until now and never even had any problem at all. I guess that is right that they need to make a survey and gather all those items which they can really maintain and not make it a sari-sari store of everything. The bad thing also which most of us quickly notice is their style of payment, it’s already year 2011 and still they do this “mano-mano” writing stuff calculations, by which if you are serving multitudes of customers, to avoid the long queues , use a cash register machine, barcode machine (which they sell too) – isnt it ironic? high tech media store but the payment style is old-fashioned? I think if CDRking would migrate to cash registers/barcode system they would get more satisfied customers. :)

    • boy_fanboy says:

      in short, the way how CD-R King handles transaction is comparable to a sari-sari store. And yes, they must be the ones who must use the cash registers that they sell.

    I only rely on cdr-king when it comes to CDs.. I used to rely on them because of their cheap products but I learned my lessons. Bibili ka halimbawa ng tig 100+ na earphone pero bibili ka ulet after 6 months kasi sira na, naka ilang 100+ ako. compare mo yung ilang 100+ mo sa branded na tig 500+, mas maganda yung quality, less hassle. lolz.. same lang rin kaya mas ginusto ko na yung mahal kesa sa mura nga yung cdr-king, papalit palit ka nman, pagod mo pa…haha

    • Rmil says:

      and as for reputaion, wala. pag sinabi mong cdr-king, nandyan yung mahaba pila kasi iisa o dadalawa lang ang pila for the whole shop. magtatanung ka kung may ganung item, sasabihin sayo “Sir dun po ang pila(WTF)” or kung titignan mo yung item para macheck mo kng ok para sau “Sir pila po muna kayo”.

  122. techguy says:

    You get what you paid for. This is the thing that makes CDR-King a love-hate experience. Sure you’ll love the the budget friendly items they offer but in return you’ll hate the way they manage things not to mention glitches that some products have. You may hate the wait and the slow service but you’ll love how this “one-stop” shop store fills that gap when you’re on a budget. Customer service suck but but you still love to fall in line and buy something. Admit it! CDR-King may be a cheapo but in a way you’ll fall in love on how they provide us additional options for novel and oftentimes ‘weird’ products.

    I bought a mini keyboard from CD-R King in Podium. It was around P395-P450 if I remember correctly. It conked out on me after 1 month. Aside from the “low quality/disposable” reputation, I think CD-R King should also improve on their customer service. The salespeople in most of the branches I’ve been to (except Podium, ironically enough) are either quite rude and/or unhelpful. But then, I can’t really blame them, can I. They probably hate their jobs.

    If you doubt their quality, DTI, wag lang na magpost ng panay naka-caps di ko mabasa. Kung sa Amerika ito e natural na magsasara sila pagkaraan na daanan ng lawsuit.

    Sa dami ng rants sa comments dito, buti wala pang nag-isip ng marahas laban sa negosyong yan.

    A CDRKing product will break if you are not careful.

  141. pishboy says:

    guys you get what you pay for, in terms of customer service. I mean, yes it’s cheap, kaya nga ang hahaba ng pila eh kasi maraming bumibili. OO, medyo inferior yung products nila when compared from branded ones pero talagang di yan tatagal kung iisipin mong bulok sya at itra-trato mong bale wala. HBW ballpens, tumatagal naman diba? kahit mura? Although hindi nga ito tatagal when compared to other products, a basic branded mouse will probably cost me 200 pesos at least, CDR king sells one for 99 pesos. Lets say the branded one lasts mga 1 year before it breaks. My 99 peso mouse lasted me for 6 months, that’s savings already. I still buy my stuff from CDR king. If one breaks, i either have spare parts to fix it or use the components of that to fix other devices (which may not be from CDR king)

  142. watafak05 says:

    when it comes to electronic devices like mouse, usb, hub ports etc, 95% of the time pag bumibili ako laging sira na agad sa unang gamit ko. pag pinalitan naman nila ganun pa din sira n din ung pinalit, kaya umiiwas n kong bumili ng electronic devices sa cdrking mga cooling pads, wirings at mga silicon pads nlng ung bnibili ko dun

  143. bakunawa says:

    karamihan sa mga products ng cdrking = disposable
    pero sa kanila pa rin ako bumibili ng blank cd/dvd. other electronic devices, sa ibang store na ako, at yung may quality na.

  144. paulsky says:

    Don’ waste your money. Don’t buy form cdrking!

  145. Von says:

    actually pag dating sa mouse depende rin eh,.. i tried to buy ung cheapest mouse nila na mga less than 99 ata un so i was expecting the worse tlga, but tumagal naman siya eh wag lang ibabagsak ^^ hahaha i’m still able to use it until now tas hinahack ko nlng ung mouse rate para 1ms lng ang delay nya sa game, o dba sulit na sulit

    on the other hand i have a friend who bought ung mouse nila na ewan ko if u consider it “high end” pero bsta ung mouse na nsa mga 600+ ata un it broke after a month.. so i guess either mejo careless sya or i’m one of the lucky ones

  146. Stay Frosty says:

    bumili ko ng moriko speaker worth 380 pesos with 1 week warranty sa sm megamall after two a week of using the sounds di na marinig dinala ko sa cd r king robinson otis unfortunately 1 week lang ang warrnty i told them you have to check it pero wala yung tech nila at sabi mas mahal daw pag pinagawa nakakainis di man lang ako ina assist ng maayos di na ko bibili sa cd r king at mag post sa internet regarding the product of cd r king that their product is only good for the prescribe warranty period . very disgusting

  149. MCSRD says:

    I don’t have any confidence with the company (CD-R king). Bumili na ako ng sobrang daming mga bagay dun pero talagang disposable. wala talaga silang quality.

    I bought a dvd player worth 1000+ for the PTA project sana, after 2 weeks, it broke down… napahiya pa aq.

    from usb, cd, mouse, dvd writer,usb ports, keyboard and just recently a Php. 1990 worth Flat Bed scanner, I can’t help but to buy from CD-R king. Their products are so cheap.

    The reason the company is still in boom a midst
    the problem with the quality is that, Filipinos in general still looks first and foremost to the price tag of the product before they buy. Accept it that the business will still be there because Filipinos have already in their system na “Ok lng kahit disposable at least meron aq at nasubukan q”.

    What we need is to educate the consumers about their rights and people must also know the things that they need to keep in mind when buying a certain product.

    dapat din na maging agressive ang mga customers when it comes to problems, sira at maling pamamahala nila. Dapat ba tanggapin mu nalang na sira ang product? I believe that this calls for an action from the DTI. They should check the standards of the company talaga and its products.
    Dapat ipaglaban nyu ung rights nyu kasi kung hindi, patuloy na ganyan ang magiging sistema ng CD-R king.
    I hope na mgakaroon naman ng conscience ang management ng kumpanya.

    • Maruco says:

      I strongly agree with you sir…
      haba ng pila then ang babagal pa ng mga sales clerk nila. pagdating ko sa bahay syempre excited ako to try whatever I bought surprisingly sa sobrang ingat ko sa gamit; sira agad… laptop desk, MGA mouse, keyboards, memory cards/sticks, etc… DISPOSABLE TALAGA!

      badtrip… I was told pa ng IT namin NEVER BUY SA CD-R KING kasi nga disposable mga items nila. pero matigas ulo ko sige pa rin but now AYOKO NA TALAGA!!!

  150. Francis Freeman says:

    I also bought 2 keyboards and 2 mouse in CDR king. The keyboards were not good to use from the start as well as the mouse. But they were there already so use it. after a month, I stopped using both the KB and the mouse for it really malfunctioning. Still works but you will be stressed out. I just junk them and bought new KB and mouse.

  151. Maruco says:

    Grabe! dami ko na ring nabili sa kanila…DISPOSABLE talaga… tigas lang talaga ulo ko…sinabihan nako ng mga friends ko na nasa I.T. never buy sa CD-r king. dami na kasi nilang branches din and mostly madadaanan ko pauwi…

    Bumili ako ng MicroSD ala pang one month sira na…ang pinatatakhan ko SANDISK naman yung nakalagay…
    Di kaya bumibili sila ng mga 2nd hand then yun din binebenta nila?

    Pati mouse, keyboard, speakers, USB, etc…disposable talaga!!!

    Nakakadismaya pa mga staff nila…ang babagal na ang susungit pa… :(

  152. juan dela cruz says:

    isa akong store technician ng isa sa mga branches ng cd-r king.. bago pa ako mag trabaho sa cd-r king, isa din ako sa libo-libong consumer na hnd mapigilan bumile ng mga produkto nila.2004 nung nakilala ko ang cdr king. sa cubao pa ako nagtratrabaho nun sa isang computer sales and repair center. tuwing may kailangan ang mga customer ko na computer accesories, sa cdrking ako bumibili dahil mura. naka tulong na ako sa customer, kumita pa ako.
    ako mismo mga gamit ko cdr-king. meron talagang madaling masira. pero depende parin kung paano mo xa gagamitin. halimbawa, ikaw, bumile ka ng mumurahin na mouse, kung gamitin mo xa, ok lang. normal lang sau na minsan hinahagis mo pa xa sa kama mo. or ok lang mahulog xa. MURA lang nmn eh. pero kung mamahalin na mouse ang binili mo, mapapansin mo, ayaw mo manlang magasgasan. ingat na ingat ka na huwag mahulog. kuha nu ung idea? nasa tao rin kung paano nila gagamitin ang item.kung mas iingatan, mas tatagal. d ako kumakampi sakanila (cd-r king). ako din minsan, naaasar pag may nabibileng palpak. kaya nga may warranty dba!?

    • pedro says:

      hmm,. may mga items ang cdr king na sablay tlga,. ok nmn yung mga nabili ko sa cdr king,. yung card reader lng cguro ako may problem,. madali masira mga card reader nila,. cguro dahil dun n din sa price,. php 30 lng kasi,. haha,. kya ok n din,. mouse ok nmn,. kya lang nasisira sakin dahil sa paggamit n din namin,. nahahampas minsan sa sobrang asar sa games,. ^__^

  155. Juvy says:

    Been buying from CDR King for 5 years now. Bought wireless router, numerous memory cards and memory sticks, mouse, laptop cooler, bluetooth device, USB-powered gadgets, webcam – so far, wala naman sira, and last for years. Pero I don’t trust to buy from them nung mga appliances na, like projector, player, TV, even portable hard drive. Not that confident to buy from them yet at this price range.

  156. cowscrubber says:

    In CDR King’s defence, their electronic products are passable. It’s the moving plastic components that break.

    I bought a TV Tuner from them almost 2 years ago and it’s still working! I also have a mouse I got from them, I opened it up and found that only the plastic wheel components have broken

  157. lhen says:

    no prob with their product yet but with their employee in cd-r king pacific in lucena province of quezon. no managerial skills, no ethics in dealing with the customers, bastos, walang modo! and even the manager do not know how to handle complains!

    • regina says:

      yeah! nasa tao nman un kung pano gamitin un products ng cd r king. pero grabe un mga tauhan ng SM LUCENA branch!!! walang manner! pinipili nila yun mga costumer n aasikasuhin nila!! wala bang proper training ang mga taga CD R KING SM LUCENA branch!mga bastos!! un lang ang ayoko! un gamit ok un mga TAUHAN HINDI!

  158. cowscrubber says:

    About the bastos employees

    In fairness to CDR King employees, I think they’re OVERWORKED AND PROBABLY UNDERPAID. At kailangan nilang magtiis dahil mahirap maghanap ng trabaho ngayon.

    Their store has NO AUTOMATION at all. Not even individual cash registers!

  160. Jangwo says:

    I bout 2T2R 300M AP Router Last September 30, 2011 for 1,480.oo Php.

    Today is January 21, 2012.

    its not working already,

    Now don’t tell me that it depends on how you use it because after i installed it i put it in a well ventilated area and never touched it again. but still it breakdown.

    I didn’t trash the Wifi Router because i want to treasure it. Being stupid buying from that store.

    I think this is the first time i bought some product in CDR KING so i guess i have my lesson now. DONT BUY ANYTHING FROM CDR KING IF YOU DONT WANT TO WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY.

    • cowscrubber says:

      Yeah, NEVER buy major electronic devices from them, especially of it’s “CDR-King” branded.

      Minor devices like flash drives are okay but ONLY if they’re from a decent brand like Imation, Kingston, or PQI.

    • netpower says:

      you cant rely on branding… they just print what ever brand they like.

    • Tenshi says:

      I bought a wifi router w/ wireless lan usb adapter for the price of P1600 last Jan 2010 and upto now it’s still working. I even use the router almost 24/7 and it’s still working fine.

  161. mike26 says:

    Depende din yan sa gumagamit. eto ngang mouse na gamit ko ngayon cdr king din, 2008 ko pa binili, 2012 na ngayon but it’s still working. pero dismayado ko sa flatbed scanner na nabili ko dun dati. 1 year palang halos, corrupted na yung software. once-in-a-blue-moon ko lang gamitin yun. and i agree about sa mga employees nila, medyo unprofessional, masungit. pero baka nga underpaid sila kaya ganun.

  162. Rabiell says:

    Bumili ako ng cooling pad sa isang store nila, specifically in SM Marilao, that afternoon ginamit ko ung cooling pad, ilang oras lng it stopped working (APPROXIMATELY 4 HOURS OF USE), nung chineck ko amoy sunog then natanggal na lng bigla ung fan. dahil nga siguro nasunog ung pinagkakapitan… nung dinala ko sa store, BECAUSE THEY CLAIM THAT IT HAS A 1 WEEK WARRANTY, sabi nung isang employee, kausapin ko daw ung techinician.. Nung kinausap ko ung techinician, sabi niya… MA’AM NASUNOG PO KASI PO DAPAT 1 1/2 HOURS LANG PO ANG GAMIT NG COOLING PAD. Sabi ko (1)Bakit hindi niya ako ininform beforehand na ganun lng? (2)Talaga bang dapat ganun lng ang hour of usage? Bkt nakalagay sa info sa likod ng label nila… heavy duty? anong klase un? (3) So ipapaayos ko na lng since under warranty cya diba? sabi niya at nung manager nila di daw ung pwede under replacement or repair warranty nila, dahil daw physical damage dapat daw sa PAID WARRANTY… Ipapagawa ko at magbabayad pa ako… Okay db? Ang pinatunayan lang nila dito…(1) HINDI DURABLE ANG PRODUKTO NILA AT (2)HINDI TOTOO ANG WARRANTY NA SINASABI NILA.

  163. tru-avist says:

    I’ve been buying things from cd-r-king like yung mga latest buys ko, wireless mouse and cooling pad. I bought the cooling pad 1 year ago and it is still good as new right now. Yung mouse, ganda rin ng specs, yet very cheap. I just bought it last month, but I can say this will last for years dahil until now nothing has changed. I know Imma kind of maingat na person. Lahat naman ng bagay nasisira, I’ve bought some brands ng gamit na mas weak sa cd-r-king. Their things are good, hindi lang kayo maalaga sa gamit porket mura lang yan.

  164. pedro says:

    about sa problem ni Rabiell sa cooling pad tingin ko nagkaron yun problema sa pagikot ng fan ng cooling pad naipit or kung anu nagyari kya d umikot ng tama, sa ganun paraan lng nmn nasisira mga fan sa cooling pad,. or grounded yung usb port,.kahit sa mga mahal na cooling pad nangyayari yan,yung technician nga lng about sa “Nung kinausap ko ung techinician, sabi niya… MA’AM NASUNOG PO KASI PO DAPAT 1 1/2 HOURS LANG PO ANG GAMIT NG COOLING PAD” sablay ka technician kahit yung mga mumurahin pa na cooling pad na masmura pa sa tinda ng cdrking kahit matagal gamitin ok lng,.

  165. Mcleod says:

    Yup, di maaasahan kung tibay ang pag – uusapan ang mga products and generally di maganda ugali ng mga sales personnel nila. Pag may nakita ako isa nagpapasalamat talaga ako. Hindi rason yung mababa pay and overworked, get out of there kung di satisfied ka as a worker; wag ibaling sa customer!

  166. chubibo says:

    i commiserate with your experiences pero bakit ako di naman sinusungitan ng mga sales personnel? is it because of my good looks? joke lang ha! yes, the products are not top of the line but when you get inside the store you already know that, right? and knowing that you are buying an inferior product what type of performance were you expecting? di ba you pay more for a branded pair of rubber shoes because maganda at matibay? ganun din sa electronic products. the bigger the company the better the research, development and manufacturing process. and of course quality control. lahat naman yan made in china na tulad ng iphone. but because apple has stricter quality control then you get a better product. so if you want something durable, pay more! wag kang cheap!

  167. darkwish says:

    nakabili rin ako ng dvd player sa kanila, bihira ko lang sya gamitin kasi weekends lang ako umuuwi ng bahay, so far naka 3 balik ako sa kanila para ipaayos dahil di na nakakabasa ng DVD format, vcd and mp3 na lang at data ang nababasa nya sa ngaun, kaya dvdr’s na lang ang binibili ko sa kanila at iba pang murang gamit na di ka manghihinayang pag nasira… so far, mabagal talaga ang service nila at take note, gadgets ang binebenta nila pero wala silang software para sa cash registry, at kelangang ballpen at papel pa talaga ang gamitin… tsk tsk tsk!!!!

  168. netpower says:

    generally i bought only small items. anything above 1k i have to think about it if its worth the risk (if it breaks down).

    in regards to they do things on paper and pen. at first i was shock not even a cash register. the sales they make is quite big yet they cant afford the cash register?

    after a while. i came up with some pausable reasons why they dont go automated. most likely of the following. (1) BIR tax coverup somewhere a long the way lost receipts. also it will be more harder for BIR to track them. computers do wonders. (2) having a cash register entails an investment on the management side. no cash register no investment plus they dont have to waste money on inks, paper, software programmer.

  169. SephJo d^_^b says:

    well,, i hardly not recommend their own products but, you can find other brands in their store,, like most of the time when i buy memory card i dont buy their own brands but i still buy on their store because you can find an alternative brands like “kingston”,, but i dont recommend buying expensive products that xcides to 1k php that has a brand of “CD’R’king” since it can easily get corrupted,, but its fine if you will just buy an optical mouse,, keyboard,, keyboard protector,, USB multi adoptor,, webcam,, well for me it has atleast a life span of 1yr and above,, well of course its still depends on how you use it yourself…

  170. WiseBuyer says:

    I only buy items that has none moving parts from CDR King like CDR, DVDR, branded (non-CDRking) USB flash drives, generic USB hubs, network cables, USB extension… you get the drift? NONE MOVING PARTS and I never had any problems. I recently bought a laptop cable lock which is permanently installed – so not being opened and closed constantly. And also recently bought a USB LED lamp – this I have to see if it will last.

    I will never buy keyboard, mouse or any electronic item from them coz I doubt their quality.

    With regards to the attitude of the personnel, I hardly had any problems with them. I believe you have to understand that they have a lot of customers and cannot entertain you too long and so you have to be extra friendly with them and be ready with all your questions before your turn comes up. Another tip, be the 1st customer on their opening hours if you really need to chat long with them.

  171. CDRKING FANATIC says:

    I’ve been a patron of CD R King for many years now and I haven’t encountered any problem with their products, exept for a 20pcs DVD’s which 12pcs failed during writing.
    I also encountered some ill manered and stupid sales persons (maybe coz their manager is stupid too).
    Lately i’ve encountered snob sales lady from their branches at SM Molino and Waltermart in Dasma.

  172. Park Chun Min says:

    Yung mga isang maputi na maliit na salesday at yung matabang maitim na salesman ay mga bastos at pinapalayas nila ang mga customers nila na gustong ipaayos yung sirang item at depektong item kesyo daw di sila nagpaparepair ng item. Ang branch ng Cd-R King ay sa Victory Park & Shop sa Antipolo City. Malapit sa Cathedral.

  173. dexter says:

    Last week I bought an imation keyb mouse combo from CDRking Puregold Taguig. Tested the product in the store and it was working. Saleslady put it in the usual cdr king plastic bag. Habang naglalakad sa loob ng mall nabutas yun plastic and nalaglag yung box ng imation. binalik ko sa store for testing only to find out that the keyboard is no longer working. Unfortunately, nagkaroon ng crack yung keyb dahil na rin sa pagkabagsak. Ayaw na nila palitan yung product kahit quality ng plstic bag nila yung culprit. :(

    Generally the problem is the quality (it’s disposable if you don’t get the lucky bunch from the thousands of bulk orders they have from China. The next problem is, when you return an item, it goes right back to the shelves for another poor person to buy, and the cycle just goes on and on. They lay their hopes that eventually some poor guy won’t return it anymore. Because i have. Whats the point of returning a P100 mouse when you have to pay for transportation fees or gas and parking (if you have a car) to return the damned thing to get another item which could have been “returned-cycled” already or to get another item that won’t work when you get home. But at the end of the day, panalo pa rin ang CDR-KING because they have a long queue, ever cheap prices, growing product lines (i mean they started out in quiapo and vira-mall with only blank cd-r’s dude!). Finally, some people have embraced the fact that the money they dished out served its purpose, for whatever duration it may have been, a few days or weeks after it 6mos warranty. Or then again, there might just be really too many people in this country that single one lining up is new to cd-r king. Long live CD-R king. Bought their wireless wifi keyboard mouse combo. awesome. its still working. way better than wireless bluetooth crap. works of the 2.4GHz signal. Peace.

    I have bought many items from CD-R King mostly small like micro cards, mouse, keyboard,webcam, earphones all still work as good as new.

    im looking for a portable DVD player now and unsure if it will last…other makes in the low end price range are Corby and have read they fail after 3 months or so.

    Any one have experience of these?

    I wanted to buy their latest tablet yesterday. 3 employees were serving clients, 4 more were doing private things like texting, chatting, playing computer games and the like.
    After 20 minutes waiting I left the store. Did NOT buy anything. After that I went to an other branch, exactly the same thing …
    their CSR ??????????????.

    Hi. I bought a 9″ TV off CDR-KING and I must admit I’m quite happy with it. My problem is, up in the R/H side of the picture, when I play a movie from my USB stick, it shows me a times (clock) I find this most annoying. I went back to Ormoc and asked the salesperson about it, When she had finished texting someone on her phone, she looked at me and said, “I dunno” (I was waiting for the follow-up…”It’s a secret”) but I collared the manageress, she said the same. I sent an email (3 times) to the company, and they have not replied… I just want to bloody know how to erase the damn clock..is it so hard for them to tell me? I will not buy again from there again..Poor customer service and quite plainly, incompetent staff… Rant over..

    Wag kayo bibile sa CDR KING ng mga gadgets kung di kayo sure na compatible sa pag gagamitan nyo.

    “My friend bought Senna 2-in-1 racing wheel worth P1,380. And yes we tested it on their store using their pc, prog., and games. My friend verbalized “gumagana ba to sa mga latest games in the market like : NFS the RUN, dirt 1 and 2 etc .. the saleslady and the it(technician) replied ” Yes po sir ” .. Since the item/wheel is cheap he bought it immediately. After 30mins of travel time we finally got to their house and tested the product we bought. He plugged it in and vioala “di man lang sya binasa ng system :-D, … “Try kaya natin sa laptop … after 2 mins same result”

    On that day we decided to replace the item and bring a laptop.

    Saleslady: i pa test po muna natin sa technician sir

    Me and my friend: ok

    lucky for us there is no customer nor queue in the tech area.

    The technician tested the prod. again and it worked @[email protected]

    Us: sir pwede po ba palitan yun product since di po ata sya COMPATIBLE/na rerecognize nung system?

    Tech: ano games po ba sinubukan nyo?

    Us: sir ni 1 wala kasi pag plug palang namin di sya na recognize. May dala po kami laptop kung gusto nyo po i-test.

    Tech. plug the wheel on the laptop and HE SAW IT WITH HIS ON EYES THAT THE SYSTEM DOESNT EVEN READ OR RECOGNIZE their PROD.

    Us: ayan sir kitang kita nyo naman. so pwede po ba palitan or mag dadagdag nalang kami para pumile ng iba prod na magugustahan namin

    Tech: di po pwede sir kasi gumagana naman sya sa system namin nakikita nyo naman.

    Us: “kamot ulo” so ang conclusion kung sa inyo gumagana yung prod at sa amin ay hinde . di namin pwede palitan

    Tech: nakita nyo naman po sir working sya

    Us: nakita nyo din naman sa laptop di sya gumagana.

    So and so forth ( pa ulit ulit lang argument namin sa 1-1 ) na uwi lang sa wala @[email protected]

    I bought 4 led 7w and one 9 watt bulb, only the 9 watt bulb is working and only under a week of replacement guarantee and after that its one year, but leds are supposed to last decades.

    I also bought a cdrking car radio and it only works some of the time and the warranty is over and it justs wates gas to even return them…

    the only thing that ever worked well was one router, cdrking pls

    I bought a P300 speaker a few years ago. It seems that it works fine in earlier times but later on, the switch button always sparked with electricity and of course electricuted by damn finger. Thanks CD-R King.

    If they recycle all the products with defects and resell it again, if it’s true, I doubt their reputation.

  185. Arnold says:

    The most important thing to remember when buying a CDR-King product is:

    -IT MUST NOT HAVE MOVING PARTS

    As it is made of cheap plastic from china, it won’t last very long.

    -IT MUST BE PLUG n’ PLAY

    If requires you to install a driver, forget it. Sooner or later it will stop working. I bought a web cam from CD-R king. Worked fine with Windows XP but of course, I needed to upgrade to Windows 7. After trying a lot of things, it did not work.

    -NEVER SOLICIT ADVICE FROM THERE TECHNICIAN

    There technicians are no good. It would be better to ask someone else who is knowledgeable about the product.

    -ABSOLUTELY DON’T BUY ADD-ONS FROM YOUR BRANDED GADGETS

    It will just look badoy and cheap.

  186. Ronie Gomez says:

    Ive been patronizing cdrking way back when they selling blank cd’s only. Not all product they offer mostly other people say is a junk because it didnt work on there end. I would say they are LACKING of CUSTOMER SERVICE lalo sa plaridel branch nila.The female staff there is somewhat sarcastic for inquiry.Before going to their shops search,read & most of all choose carefully the items that you purchase.Its our responsibility to know its compatibility.

  187. Molybdenum Studios says:

    Oh yes. I own a CD-R King Tripod and guess what? Its quality cannot par with Velbon and Sony. AT ALL.

  188. Joseph says:

    I’ve bought a lot of things from CDRKing from 5 peso CD’s when they were just starting to a P1,180 tv tunner just recently. The only product the I guess I could say that I don’t like is the mini keyboard I bought from gateway cubao branch. And I’ve learned a lot of things since then. I’ve learned that not all staff of CDRKing is not that bad you just have to know how to deal with them, same goes to their product. Not long ago I bought a solar power bank, which I found out that the solar charger could not charge the power bank by itself even if I put it outside for a week also the battery pack is not what it says on the box. So after 3 days I returned the product, after explaining the staff immediately told me to just choose a different powerbank model and I think I’ve chosen the right model this time and I got an extra pen light since the replacement was cheaper than the original I got plus the power bank works and I can charge 2 cellphone units using one single charge. I guess before going to CDRKing (tip to others) first check the crew if you think no one can understand your language (technically and literally) don’t buy there. Next do a little research, the product you are buying might be available on other store for the same price or maybe cheaper and is being offered a 1 year service warranty(like tablets/other gadgets). BTW the P1,180 tv tuner I bought from cdrking is by far the cheapest in the market and is easier to return just in case its not working. So be smart before buying and not a smart ass after being ripped. If you want quality products you have to pay the price.

    Bwisit talaga ang CDR King! Walang kwenta na tindahan! I always buy from them blank DVDs for the past few months. If I’ll count all those items I’ve bought from them, it would number at more than 500 already.

    Yesterday, I bought another 10 blank DVDs and upon getting home at 10, I burned a lot of images and videos that I’ve created. Two of those discs have errors.

    So, this afternoon, I brought the two damaged discs to them and ask for replacement but they won’t give me. They said that the discs don’t have warranty. But, I insisted that I want replacements.

    Suddenly, the saleslady told me that if I have gone back to them last night, they might have given me the replacements.

    So, ano ba talaga, ate? Puede bang ma return and exchange or not?

    Does that mean to say that if I have bought 1,000 discs from them and all of them have errors, they can’t replace it anymore? What the heck!

    I told them that I will report this to DTI and I will NEVER EVER GO BACK TO THEM AGAIN TO BUY ANYTHING THERE!

  191. buyer says:

    bili lang kayo sa CDR-king ng mga cheap na item at ung mga tipong panandalian lang na gamitan… para kung masira man, ok lang kasi mura lang at pansamantala nyo lng naman gagamitin eh… pero kung pang matagalan kagaya ng LED TV at ibang appliances, dun na lang kayo sa branded at sa kilala na may magandang reputasyon… kaya mura ang items nila kasi di rin naman sure kung tatagal ang buhay nun, kung baga, swertihan lang talaga… peace. :)

  192. JL says:

    I’ve been buying from CDR for a couple of years now. Thus far, all I could say is that it’s a great place to buy gadgets and the likes if you’re on a budget (if you’re just a student and have no job) and if you’re not expecting their products to last for years. I’ve bought P50 earphones from them and I expect it to last for 2 weeks. If it lasts longer than that, the better. If you don’t care about the quality of the sound and you want to have something you can use temporarily just to listen to music, then their cheap headphones are a good purchase.

    The most expensive thing I’ve bought was their P2500-ish 500gb External Hard Drive. It worked properly without any problems and lasted half a year, and could have lasted even longer, if I hadn’t lost it due to negligence…
    Currently, I’m typing this on a CDR King USB Keyboard (around P250) and I’m pretty content with it since I’ve been using it since October last year. It’s proven to be a great purchase.

    But what it all comes down to, is how you take care of your stuff. It doesn’t matter if it’s branded or not. If you don’t take care of your gadgets well enough, it’s bound to get broken.

    Oh, and one last thing. I’ve recently started buying their blank DVDs. So far…none of them were working (I think I bought more or less 20 already). I also bought branded ones from other stores and I was able to burn those properly. So, from personal experience, avoid their blank CDs/DVDs. It’s my worst purchase from them thus far.

    Had a bad experience in cdr king balanga, bataan in galleria. the staff were very lazy, parang napipilitan lang but they wont really reach out. kunwari naghahanap and nag-aassist pero napaka sarcastic, esp that anna mallado that i have encountered. ang tagal kaming pinaghintay to think napaka konti lang ng customers nila at kung san san pa ako pinagtututuro, at di sila knowledgeable sa mga products na binebenta nila. san ba sila mga napagkukukuha? sa palengke? dinampot tapos pinagbantay sa cdr king? sana tinuturuan nila or tine-train ang mga staff nila ng good customer service, hindi tinuturuang maging tamad at bastos.

  194. Johan Kessler says:

    I’ve bought many products from CD-R King, knowing full well their reputation, and have to echo the sentiments of some previous posters; it’s best to avoid–with some exceptions (e.g. routers)–anything electronic or with moving parts.
    For those products that are reliable, and/or inherently can’t fail, they are an excellent source.
    My problem with CD-R King, as with many other commenters herein, is their atrocious customer (dis)service. Clearly they cut costs this way but it has the effect of causing me to shop elsewhere when possible, even if I might pay more, just to avoid the hassle. I suspect that it’s part intentional (cost-cutting, as mentioned) and part incompetence; a complete lack of basic business acumen such as ‘the customer comes first’.
    Waiting on long queues to simply ask if an item is in stock, when half the staff who should be helping customers are goofing off texting, or making personal calls on company time (I’ve witnessed this firsthand), is not a way to generate goodwill and repeat business.
    Neither is rudeness and indifference on the part of their staff, nor untrained staff who don’t know a dongle from my d–k, nor putting most of their items on the wall behind the counter so that those of us who are nearsighted have to ask the incompetent staff what an item is, or make them take down half-a-dozen things just so I can see what they are and read their specs. I’m well-traveled and nowhere else have I encountered such a ridiculous way of doing things
    Personally, I’d love to be employed by them as a ‘spy’ of sorts, canvassing the various branches to enforce employees’ work ethic. If I could walk into a store and had the authority to fire, on the spot, anyone caught not doing their job (I’m a hardass!) I could start them on the road to reforming their reputation and generating that precious customer goodwill right quick (hell, I’d do it for free!) Yes, many girls would no doubt end up at the bar as a result, but let’s face it, that is where a lot of the ones they hire belong in the first place!

    CDR King can really ruin a person’s day and it did just that today. My husband asked me to buy 2 products which he verified with their product inquiry as only available in CDR King Techno Hub. After a tiring day at the office, I took time to drop by Techno Hub which is not even in my route going home. Once there, the sales person proceeded to pick up a record book to check the products. Apparently, this shop DO NOT HAVE WORKING INTERNET OR EVEN WORKING PHONE so they could not check it against their inventory or call whatever entity they need to call to verify the items. The sales person obviously did not want to go to the stock room and look for the items because he did not even know what it was or even looked like. He had to rely on the code although a description and even the price were available from the info my husband gave me. I stayed put and I insisted that they bother themselves to look for the items. After a while of waiting they gave up and said sorry the items were old stock and they could not find the items. They did not even bother to get my number so that if they could find the items they could just inform me. I wasted my time, gas, effort and parking ticket for items that are obviously in their shop but they are just incompetent or maybe too lazy to look for. CDR King, we have sworn you off our list. This store does not only have a reputation problem and based on the complaints I have read (there is even a hate page on FB) their personnel and system simply violate all rules on retail and customer service. Their items may be reasonable in price but the stress they bring is just not so worth it. Your piece mentioned CDR King needs time to rebuild their reputation. Your post was made in 2011 and it is now 2014. It is obvious CDR King does not consider their customers kings and they have not bothered to rebuild their service or the quality of their products after all this time.

    I suggest na bago bumili sa mismong shop, browse muna online tapos ask the tech for availability and advice. That way hindi masasayang pagod nyo at hindi reklamo ng reklamo.

    Before I go to a store and buy my prospected item, I usually search it first for its availability on the said store. I have visited three branches of CDR King in Cainta looking for PC to TV converter (VGA to RCA), took pictures on my phone. On three stores, when asked them about the item, they were consistent on their answers, “we don’t have that product”. But when showed them the picture, of course with CDR King label, their response was, “we’re out of stock”. Their answers are telling me that the sales persons don’t know what they are selling or they are not aware about their products. CDR King should have product awareness to their sales persons, although they have desktop PC on the store which they can inquire about the product. I have also took my time to email them regarding the availability of other items on their list and there was no response until now. That was my experience with CDR King.

    • denise says:

      I agree. This is the most common pitfall for all salespeople, whether it’s CD-R King or not. Na kapag hindi sila pamilyar dun sa produkto would be just to tell the customer that either it’s not in their inventory or out of stock.

      That’s why I always come prepared each time I visit CD-R King. Kung hindi nila alam yung sinasabi ko, PRODUCT CODE na ang binibigay ko so that they can search for it online and tell you whether they really have the item on stock or not. That way, hindi na nila kelangang manghula and at the same time naiinform din sila about that product if they aren’t familiar with it.

  205. David Ong says:

    We buy quite a lot of small low cost stuffs from the outlet, on the basis if items defective, like you say, throw it away, not worth the time to go back for warranty. Have never bought any expensive items like electric bicycle, just not sure if they will really guarantee it and provided good after sales service. For example, even when no crowd, you are asked to a get a waiting ticket, after you did it, still no service, or staff did not really give a damn to the waiting ticket. If current service status is like that, personally, I cannot expect CDR King, can offer proper after sales service. That said, the staff are usually courteous but not really knowledgeable about their product quality and performance characteristics.

  206. David Ong says:

    Let me hasten to add one more comment. CDR King, as a low cost outlet, is a marvelous outlet for consumers. If they can get their act together to market higher quality product, a reasonable price, with the proper consumer-oriented service and after sales service, they deserves to have wide support, for we do need such consumer white goods products with proper servicing.

  207. fyi says:

    Cdr king is not one stop shopping, Going to one of their stores to purchase a item you saw on their web site usually gets you sorry sir out of stock. Every time i go to purchase something at their store i saw on their web site they don’t have and none of the other stores have one either.

    Either they just put stuff on their web site that they don’t have or they can’t update their web page like any competent business would.

    I went into one today to purchse a hdmi to av converter i saw on their web page and what a surprise they don’t have any.

    Cdr king is a waste of my time.

  208. fyi says:

    One other thing, they have redesigned their stores or at least the one in bacolod, now they have a bunch of shelves in the center of the store and they are selling crap like plastic dishes and glasses stuffed animals etc.

    They turned it into a dollar store or in this case a peso store. A whole lot of cheap crap that has nothing to do with computers or electronics. Need some cheap plastic crap to eat off of get down to cdr king before they are out of stock.

    My dad bought a lcd 32″ tv from them back when it was initially released, I think back 2012, and still working. I also currently use a 16gb cdrking mmc on my phone, had it since end of 2012, and still working.

    I’d say 10% of what I bought from cdrking had failed in the first 6 months, Mostly the flash drives anyway.

    For the price of their items, I couldn’t really complain.

We all know that cheap brands don’t last well but many people are always go to cd r king for products because we Pinoys are like to buy low cost products.
