Media quote on RiDATA SSD from CES 2008

From CNN


CES 2008: Best tech for and by small businesses
“…These new ones, like the RiTek showed here, use solid-state memory similar to SD Memory cards or Flash. Solid-state hard drives are much faster than traditional storage. With a bit of tinkering, they could give that old machine of yours some new life.”
-By Jonathan Blum

From their CES special report, they visited all major SSD manufacturers, RiDATA SSD is the only one won the Editor's Choice 2008 -the Best of CES 2008 Award.

here is the quote from BCCHardware:
"Computer Hardware - Computer Components
Ridata SSD Hard Drives (32GB Turbo)
SSD hard drives are still fairly new products, but their ability to improve hard drive performance has made them extremely attractive to consumers. 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 maps in under 18 seconds (Typical HDD load times for Crysis ~1:45 minutes). This extreme performance carries a hefty pricetag, 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. "


From Digital Reviews Network



“…RITEK SSD boasts a random access speed of up to 110MB/s and a write speed of up to 70MB/s. This device should do wonders for speeding up boot up times and improve overall system performance.”

Ces 2008: Ridata Intros 128GB SATA SSDs, Speeds Past Competition
“…Ridata introduced three SSDs today, in 32-, 64-, and 128GB capacities. We've seen SSDs this large before, but Ridata claims 170MB/sec read and 105MB/sec write speeds, blowing out their recent competition…”

From Tech2



“2008 could easily be the year of the SSD…

…They have introduced a new non-volatile 2.5" SATA Solid State Disk (SSD) that has burst reads at a rate of 300MB per second. The faster speed Serial ATA (SATA) drive is available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities as it 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 a traditional hard disk drive. It is NAND technology that provides the drive's data transfer rates of up to 170MB per second for maximum sequential read…”

RiDATA love the performance

“…RiDATA, whilst happily sticking BD and HD DVD onto one disc have also been playing with SSDs and have been showing off a machine built by ibuypower that uses purely SSDs for storage, kicking traditional HDDs into touch.

Using four 32GB SSDs, the performance boost for start up times is impressive with a cold boot to fully loaded desktop in about 20 seconds under XP. I reckon that the age of the PC never being off could be almost upon us if you took advantage of hibernation power settings…. But then the green mob would kill you…”
But putting thoughts of warmer summers aside, check out those figures for read and write… and notice that they’ve broken the graph… I watched it happen! With the EeePC from Asus already with us and SSDs becoming possible and affordable, how long until the familiar whir of an HDD is no longer with us?

Ritek to Offer 128 GB Solid-State Drives
By: Bogdan Botezatu, Hardware Editor

“…The Ultra-S products come in a standard, 2.5-inch form factor and connect to the computer via a Serial-ATA II interface, which allows notebook users move from classical HDDs to SSDs without performing any hardware modification to the system. The drive features an amazing 300MB/s burst read speed, but in normal conditions, the unit can deliver 39/32, 60/50, 100/70 MB/s Read/Write transfer rates…..”
