They are the local distributors for Western Digital, Adata and several other top brands, one can only hope that dove picks these brands up or you can expect prices to rise. Looks like IT isnt immune from the recession!

Yep, BDT used to be Melco.
BDTs brands overlap with quite a few other disties, so im really not too supprised to hear they are closing unfortunetly. I would be interested to know what effect Altech (and Gigabyte) had on the decision.
There is just no money as a IT disti/reseller these days. Half of the problem however has been caused by the disties themselves.
What concerns me is that BDT was one of two MS OEM distributors in NZ. I wonder what will happen to OEM pricing when the competition is gone..... Hell, not just concered about pricing, also concerend about the ability of the other OEM disti to be able to ship the product out the door reliably.
