Aleratec Reduces Blu-ray Prices up to 65%

Chatsworth, CA – March 24, 2009 – Aleratec Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of "Prosumers' Choice" solutions for the Blu-ray, DVD/CD, Flash, HDD, USB duplicating, and DVD/CD publishing markets, announces dramatic price reductions for its Blu-ray products.

The 1:3 Copy Cruiser Blu LS, a LightScribe-enabled disc publisher supporting Blu-ray recording has been reduced 25% to a new low estimated retail price of $1575 and Aleratec's new 4x BD-R Blu-ray recording media has been reduced 65% to $57.99.

The 1:3 Copy Cruiser Blu LS incorporates three, 6x, SATA Blu-ray drives that can simultaneously produce up to 3 silkscreen quality, direct to disc DVD or CD LightScribe labels or up to 3 Blu-ray, DVD or CD disc copies in record time. The 1:3 Copy Cruiser Blu LS has an eSATA connection to your computer for the most stable labeling and duplicating processes. For those that do not have an eSATA port on their computer, a dual channel eSATA host adapter is included FREE with purchase. The powerful Aleratec Disc Publishing Software Suite -- ideal all in one package for music, photos, video, data, and backup -- is also included FREE with purchase.

"In challenging times like these, we are excited to be able to offer serious cost reductions to our Prosumer users. We created our successful Blu-ray 1:3 Copy Cruiser Blu LS in direct response to the growing demand for the higher capacities required for high definition video quality. Slashing prices on LightScribe enabled Blu-ray disc publishers and Aleratec BD-R media paves the way to the use of high speed, high capacity Blu-ray technology to a much broader range of applications, including government, education and all sizes of businesses," stated Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO.

LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling is an integrated system that combines LightScribe-enabled DVD/CD recorders with specially coated LightScribe compliant media and the powerful Aleratec Disc Publishing Software Suite to produce precise, laser-etched, silkscreen quality labels with superior sharpness and clarity. LightScribe creates professional-looking CD and DVD labels right in the drive -- no messy markers or additional printing supplies required. Small and medium businesses can burn a few discs or many and complement each with descriptive titles, content lists, graphics or company logos on their labels.

The 1:3 Copy Cruiser Blu LS supports 50GB capacity double layer BD media. To take full advantage of Blu-ray's BD disc capacity, the unique Aleratec Blu-ray system supports 6x BD recording speeds and has an eSATA interface to the computer improving data transfer characteristics during recording or copying. With the Aleratec Disc Duplicating and Disc Recording Software Suite, you can make up to 50GB compilations on your hard drive and quickly make 3 simultaneous copies. And with up to 50GB disc capacity, the 1:3 Copy Cruiser Blu LS is an excellent back up device.
