Connect Tech Inc. Announces New Lifetime Warranty

Guelph, Ontario - January 2, 2003

Connect Tech Inc., designer and manufacturer of multi-port serial adapters, announced that its entire line of products will be covered by a new Lifetime Warranty. The decision to upgrade the warranty, coupled with an existing policy of free technical support, translate into more value and peace of mind with every Connect Tech purchase. The change is effective January 1, 2003.

"We want to offer our customers the most value for their dollar," explained Connect Tech President David J. Worthen. "The Lifetime Warranty removes one element from the decision-making process. Trouble-free repairs and support are a given when purchasing a Connect Tech product;there will be no expensive surprises down the road. We've always stood behind the quality and reliability of our products, and it was time to translate that product belief into a tangible asset for our customers."

The extended warranty includes a grace period of 90 days, and is therefore retroactive to October 1, 2002. Connect Tech will honor the warranty on any purchases made after that date. Customers whose purchases fall outside the time frame may still take advantage of the of the new policy by upgrading their current warranties. Please contact SWD for details.

The warranty will apply across all product families, covering Connect Tech's popular Blue Heat/PCI series, the Xtreme PC/104 family, the CompactPCI-based Titan boards, USB-to-serial products, and the ISA series.
