Advanced Media has announced they will be adding Solid State Disk (SSD) flash memory to its RIDATA line. Available in capacities of 16GB and 32GB, the RIDATA Flash SSD can fully replace the hard drive in a notebook or portable device.
Advanced Media, Inc., manufacturer and marketer of the popular RIDATA brand of recordable CD and DVD media, electronic storage products, and digital media accessories, is set to add a non-volatile Flash Solid State Disk (SSD) storage medium to its RIDATA line. It is available in 16 GB and 32GB capacities. It will be on display in the Advanced Media 2007 International CES booth, South Hall 3 (Upper Level, S3) Booth 31573.
"Based on flash-memory technology, our new RIDATA Flash SSD offers highly reliable data storage and rugged, high-performance," remarked Harvey Liu, Advanced Media president. "When compared to a traditional HDD, the RIDATA SSD requires less power, weighs less than half as much, offers faster boot and access times, and operates at a lower temperature and no mechanical movement part. It is the perfect HDD replacement for any notebook, sub-notebook, or tablet PC."
Since it has no moving parts, the RIDATA Flash SSD produces virtually no noise, no heat generation, and no vibration, while offering more reliable temperature and humidity that assures long-lasting storage. It is engineered with semiconductor components and uses NAND flash memory. Importantly, it also has the same host interface as a hard disk drive, so there is no issues with compatibility or upgrading. It simply plugs into a device's IDE slot.
The RIDATA Flash Solid State Disk will be available around the middle of December for a suggested retail price of $169. More information can be found here.
