CES 2008: Best tech for and by small businesses from Fortune Small Business Magazine and Best of CES Computer Hardware - Computer Components from BCC Hardware
Diamond Bar, Calif. -Jan. 17, 2008 - -Advanced Media, Inc., is a manufacturer and marketer of the popular Ridata brand of recordable CD and DVD media, electronic storage products, and digital media accessories. The company received two prestigious mentions during the CES 2008 show for its non -volatile 2.5" SATA Solid State Disk (SSD) available in 32, 64 and 128GB capacities.
"SSD hard drives are still fairly new products, but their ability to improve hard drive performance has made them extremely attractive to consumers, said Benjamin "Zeus" Heide Editor of BCC Hardware. "Ridata has released their 32GB Turbo SSD, and the performance is fantastic. At their booth at CES 2008 they had 4 of these drives in a Raid 0 set, and were able to load Crysis game maps in under 18 seconds (Typical HDD load times for Crysis ~1:45 minutes). This extreme performance carries a hefty price tag, but the increase in performance is dramatic, and for that reason the Ridata 32GB SSD hard drive has earned our Editor's Choice award for the Computer Hardware Components category at CES 2008."
"We are pleased the press understands that Ritek is serious about becoming a leader in the SSD market segment. Ritek engineers are working hard to increase drive capacities and performance at a strong consumer value," remarked Harvey Liu, Advanced Media President. "Ritek's 2.5" SATA SSD drive provides users with phenomenally fast read and write speeds. For instance, it reduces boot up and seek times to seconds, while new software programs can be installed in a fraction of the time a hard drive requires."
The Ridata SSD drive is inherently resistant to vibration, shock, and temperature extremes. Its reliability is proven by more than 4,000,000 hours Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF). Data integrity is supported by static wearing leveling and Reed -Solomon ECC (RS -ECC 6/8/10 symbols). With SMART features and write endurance cycle (P/E) of more than 2,000,000 times.
The Ridata 2.5" SATA SSD drive is based on NAND flash technology. It has no moving parts, which allows it to be virtually silent, run cooler, and use less power than traditional hard disk drives. NAND technology also provides the drive's fast data transfer rates of up to 170MB per second for maximum sequential read.
Using single -level -chip technology, the Ridata SSD drive provides consistent performance, handles operating temperatures up to 70˚F, and has extremely low -power consumption in comparison to a traditional hard drive. The Ridata SSD is among the lightest -weight storage drives available. It is excellent for performance -driven and rugged environments, such as laptops, gaming, industrial, professional, and military applications.
The Ridata burst read up to 236MB/ps and up to 170MB sequential read transfer rate 2.5" SATA -based SSD cards are available now in 32 and 64 capacities through system integrators, selected retailers, and Ridata distributors. Ridata 128 GB SSD's will be available end of Q1 2008. Visit www.ritekusa.com for more information.
