Advanced Media, Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of the popular Ridata brand of recordable CD and DVD media, electronic storage products, and digital media accessories, announced today it has received Windows Vista® ReadyBoost Premium Certifications for several of its popular Ridata EZdrives™.
"Ridata EZdrives are a great consumer value. The competitively priced, award winning, and now premium certified drives are the ideal solution for on the go data storage," stated Harvey Liu, Advanced Media president. "We are pleased to expand our offering of Windows Vista ReadyBoost certified removable storage products."
ReadyBoost is simple to use. When a ReadyBoost enabled USB drive is inserted into a Vista enabled computer port, Vista checks to see if it's fast enough to work with ReadyBoost. Then the user decides if they want to use the device to speed up system performance. Users can also choose to use part of a USB drive's memory to speed up performance and the remainder for file storage.
All Ridata EZdrives offer true plug-and-play convenience. Each is compliant with USB 2.0 with a full-speed transfer rate of up to 480Mbps. All are backwards compatible with USB 1.1. No external power or battery is needed, since a USB port on any compatible desktop or laptop computer powers all. A power-saving mode reduces power consumption.
