Product continues top-seller status for Ingram Micro, Tech Data; SoftRAM dominates all competitors in opening, using applications in PC Today magazine analysis.

CULVER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 11, 1995--Syncronys Softcorp (OTC: SYCR) was rated first in a review of its SoftRAM product against all competitors in the November issue of PC Today, a prestigious national computer publication.

Another competitor, RAM Doubler, received the lowest rating with PC Today stating that RAM Doubler has no interface and failed to open key test applications.

In other news, SoftRAM continues its top-seller status as reported by both Ingram Micro, Tech Data and PC Magazine.

In a head-to-head comparison including RAM Doubler, MagnaRAM and Hurricane, SoftRAM received the highest ranking in a uniform test based on opening a suite of programs. These applications included the popular Microsoft Word for Windows, Lotus Approach, Okna's DeskTop Set PIM, State of the Art's BusinessWorks for Windows, CompuServe's WinCIM and Lotus 1-2-3 for DOS.

The review stated: "SoftRAM is easy to install and set up. You can change configuration options to optimize power as well. SoftRAM doubled our RAM and let us open and use more programs than any of the other RAM software reviewed. `Use' is the optimal word here. Some of the other programs reviewed opened all the applications we used for this test, but wouldn't run all of them when we switched back and forth between the applications."

In addition, SoftRAM's interface was judged the easiest to read with all information accessible from a single window.

PC Today's conclusion represents a strong evaluation of SoftRAM stating that "if your only concern is the ability to open and use the most applications you can at one time, we suggest you buy SoftRAM."

"The independent evidence is growing daily which supports our absolute conviction that SoftRAM is the most dynamic and effective memory enhancing utility for Windows 3.1. PC Today is saying it loud and clear. XXCAL Labs, an internationally recognized software testing lab, also said that SoftRAM effectively doubles RAM for the configurations it tested," Rainer Poertner, Syncronys' president and CEO noted.

"Our customers are saying it through a statistically representative study conducted by the highly respected market research firm Dataquest. Their results showed that eighty percent said that SoftRAM performed as expected and eighty-two percent described themselves as being either very satisfied or satisfied with the product," Poertner added.

Additionally, latest sales reports further confirm Syncronys' position as the number one selling RAM expansion utility program. For the fourth time, SoftRAM was ranked number one on PC Magazine's Top Retail Software chart. The listing appeared in the Dec. 19 issue of PC Magazine. In its most recent issue, SoftRAM's shipment volume ranked ahead of Netscape Navigator and WordPerfect 6.1. The list is compiled by Ingram Micro and ranks PC business programs according to the total number of copies shipped to more than 12,000 stores and resellers in the week ending Oct. 13, 1995.

According to reseller Tech Data's "Best Sellers List," SoftRAM has held the number one sales position in the utilities category for four months and in the December listing, SoftRAM tops PLUS! 1.0 from Microsoft and Remove-It 2 from Verisoft.

To date, more than 700,000 copies of SoftRAM have been sold through distribution channels worldwide.
