margins. Users also commend us for our tech support, and comment about our
software's ease-of-use, elegant design and reliable performance. Of course, it
helps that we've won a number of coveted awards such as ZDNet's 5-Star ranking
and Smart Computing's Smart Choice award for NTI CD-Maker;
and PC Magazine's Editor's Choice award for NTI Backup NOW!"
