Advanced Media Offers $$$ -Saving Ideas for This Holiday Gift Season

Times Are Tough, So Company Offers Santa Some Great Bargains on Great Ridata Gift Ideas

12/1/2008 - Diamond Bar, Calif. - What is Santa to do? Christmas and holiday gift giving is at hand, but budgets are tight and discretionary money is not what it used to be. Poor Santa. Not! Santa this year is checking out Advanced Media, Inc., the manufacturer and marketer of the popular Ridata brand of recordable DVD, Blu -ray, flash media, electronic storage products, and digital accessories has some great gift ideas to help the jolly gift giver. And best of all, these ideas are priced to save Santa some major ho -ho -dough.


"Just because times are difficult this holiday season, doesn't mean we can't still give meaningful gifts," remarked Harvey Liu, president of Advanced Media, Inc. "Advanced Media and major online retailers are teaming up to offer some great deals on terrific Ridata -brand items. There's no need for a bah -humbug holiday. People just need to look for one of our Ridata gift ideas."

Idea One - Save up to $1000!
Have someone on your list who needs a new PC or Mac? Instead of purchasing a new computer, upgrade their current one with a Ridata Ultra S Plus Solid State Disk. With the average retail cost of a notebook computer at anywhere from $800 to $1200, Santa can save between $600 and $1000 if he or she buys this Ridata solid state disk at www.walmart.com, where a 32GB model goes for $174. Easy -to -follow installation tutorials can be found at ritekusa.com.

Idea Two - Save from $450 to over a $1000!
Last year, under better economic conditions, a most generous Santa passed out SLR digital cameras to many happy people. This year, a smart more frugal Santa can accessorize those same cameras. For instance, those lucky gift recipients from a year ago need a way to safely store their digital photos so as not to take up valuable space on their camera or computer. Both the Ridata 233x CF card and the Ridata Twister USB drive are excellent storage solutions. And, they provide a convenient, easy way for taking those images to an in -store photo kiosk to have them printed. The 233x CF card is available now through Amazon.com, while a 4GB Twister is available at BUY.com. And the beauty is, either can be used not only for storing photo files, but any digital file. Santa might even want to pick up a few for himself to save those photos of his upcoming trip to show Mrs. Claus later.

Idea Three - Save $500!
Just as Santa would never buy a new sleigh just to get new runners, he would also never buy a new computer just to get more USB ports. Why would he? He could just buy one or two or three or a whole series of Ridata Yego hub drives. Each of these award -winning, unique "Y" shaped, multi -function USB flash drives has two additional USB ports. This allows more USB devices to be connected, expanding a computer's storage capabilities as well as its number of ports. Yego comes in six fun colors with a range of capacities. A 2GB Yego drive can be bought this holiday season for under $25 at www.walmart.com, www.newegg.com, or other online retailers. Be sure to tell Santa you don't want to ever run out of ports again. He'll know what to buy. It's already on his list.
Idea Four - Save $100!
Santa may be up there in age, but he's hip to the high -tech era. And like the rest of us, there are a number of techies - okay, geeks, nerds, whatever you want to call them - that he takes gifts to every year. In 2008, the bearded one will be giving many of these folks expanded storage capacity with either a Ridata Blu -Ray optical disc or Ridata DVD + or - R dual layer disc. A blue -ray recordable disc is the latest in optical storage. It offers five times the storage capacity of a normal DVD, making it an ideal medium for recording high definition video, video games, or large amounts of data onto one disc. The 25GB Ridata Blu -ray Disc (BD -R) stores over 4.5 hours of high -definition video or about 11.5 hours of standard -definition video.

A Ridata DVD DL disc is a double -layer, single -sided disc that doubles storage capacity. It offers a generous 8.5GB capacity and is ideal for large capacity video recording, MP3 audio archiving, data / files backup, DVD -ROM backup, and much more. Micro Center features the Ridata 25GB Blu -ray Disc and the DVD DL, both in store and online. High tech storage solutions at great low -tech prices. Smart for any sensible, savvy Santa seeking to save some cash.
