Press Release Summary: Ritek is among the first manufacturers to offer SSD Drives at

Press Release Body: Diamond Bar, Calif.-Feb. 12, 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
announced today that its Ridata Solid State Turbo Drives (SSD) will be available for
purchase at all 34 Fry\'s Electronics stores and online at in February.

\"We are pleased to be the first to partner with the popular Fry\'s Electronics to
provide early adopters, gamers and savvy consumers a Solid State Drive alternative
to Hard Disk Drives. SSD drives offer a host of benefits over traditional hard disk
drives especially for notebooks. Cool and silent running; fast data access times;
dependability and resistance to harsh environments make SSD drives a serious
contender for eventually replacing Hard Disc Drives," remarked Harvey Liu, Advanced
Media President.

Data Integrity
The Ridata SSD drive is inherently resistant to vibration, shock, and temperature
extremes. It is very reliable with more than 4,000,000 hours Mean Time Between
Failures (MTBF). Data integrity is further 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 SSD drive is built to securely
write and store critical data.

The Ridata 2.5" Turbo SATA SSD drive is a cutting-edge solid-state flash disk, based
on NAND flash technology. It has no moving parts, which allows it to be virtually
silent, run cooler, and use less power than a traditional hard disk drive.

Using single-level-chip technology, the Ridata SSD drive provides consistent
performance 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, and
industrial, professional, and military applications.

The drive requires only a five-volt power supply. Because of its low-power
consumption, user time on a laptop or other mobile computing application is
dramatically extended. Having no mechanical parts, low power consumption, and
minimal heat generation, the Ridata SSD drive is a natural alternative for a greener
environment. Meeting bus interface industry standard Serial ATA (SATA) ensures there
are no host compatibility or upgrading issues. The Ridata drive offers reliable
temperature (0 to 70C) and humidity resistance, assuring long-lasting data storage.
The 2.5" drive weighs 64.5 grams with dimensions of 101.85 x 69.85 x 9mm.

The Ridata 2.5" SATA based Turbo SSD cards will be available at Fry's stores and in February. Visit for more information.
