– New Super Fast and Reliable SSD Drives Make Your Current Computers Perform Like Never Before with Increased Durability, Security and Efficiency; Complete Upgrade Kit Allows for Easy Installation by Just About Anyone –

LAS VEGAS, NV, January 9, 2012 – Monster Digital®, a leading innovator and developer of advanced memory storage solutions, today introduced its first product in the fast-growing SSD (Solid State Drive) category, outpacing competitors with the debut of its ultra-high speed “LeMans Series” SSD Drives. Monster Digital’s super reliable, high-performance and energy efficient SSD drives are available in densities of 80GB, 120GB, 240GB, 400GB, with 550/515 MB/s sequential read/write speeds.

Most Complete: Easy Installation Kit for Upgrading Computer Experiences!
As part of its commitment to enhancing user experiences, Monster Digital believes that with the right tools, virtually any consumer can upgrade their laptop or desktop computer to provide dramatically improved capabilities and performance. That’s why in addition to the standalone purchase option, all LeMans Series SSD Drives will be available in a breakthrough Easy Installation Kit, which includes everything consumers need to quickly and easily upgrade their computer.  The Installation Kit includes all the necessary software, cables and even the tiny screwdriver needed to safely and securely install the new SSD Drive, as well as duplicate all existing computer hard drive files onto the faster SSD drive. Thanks to the Easy Installation Kit, many consumers who may have been thinking about replacing their computer with a better performing model can now save their money by simply upgrading to the faster, smoother, more energy-efficient performance of SSD in a snap!

Dramatically Faster Than Magnetic Drives, Total Reliability and Security
Monster Digital’s SSD drives are 5x faster than conventional 7,200 RPM Hard Disc Drives. Notably, because there are no moving parts, very little can go wrong with the new SSD drives mechanically, adding to their unprecedented reliability. Additionally the “LeMans” series has on board Data Compression and Encryption which can make a 400GB SSD drive store data like a 750GB standard hard drive under typical use.

Thanks to their low power consumption, they provide significantly longer battery operating times as well (power consumption is 3W active and <200mW inactive). Users also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with airtight data security, including industry-leading 256-bit AES encryption and user-selected password protection. Even compared to most competitors SSD’s on the market the “LeMans” series are up to 10x more reliable with more consistent speed due to Reduced Write Amplification enabled by enterprise levels of Over Provisioning. Monster Digital SSDs also support TRIM and SATA 3 and come with a 5-year warranty.

Monster Digital CEO Jay Tandon noted: “SSD technology is definitely the wave of the future in personal computing. And while many of today’s mainstream laptop and desktop consumers have heard about the many benefits of SSD technology, including faster speeds, more reliability and lower power consumption, they simply don’t know how to go about making an upgrade themselves. With our new SSD solutions, Monster Digital is literally making it a snap for anyone to upgrade quickly and easily. Best of all, once you’ve replaced your old hard drive and installed your new Monster Digital drive, your computer will not just perform like new again but run significantly faster!”

In addition to its new SSD  drive solutions, Monster Digital offers a comprehensive line of super rugged, high-capacity SD, MicroSD and CompactFlash memory cards, with SD cards in versions ranging from 8GB to 128GB capacities, and MicroSD cards from 4GB to 32GB capacities mainly in upper end class 10 and UHS-1 speeds. The CompactFlash cards range from 16GB to 128GB capacities at up to 800x speeds. All these products are available at, InMotion Stores and other fine retailers.
