Network World Names X1 Professional Client as Clear Choice Test Winner
X1 Technologies wins test of six third-party search tools for Windows desktops

PASADENA, CA – August 12, 2010 X1 Technologies, Inc., an innovator in email and desktop search solutions, today announced that the X1 Professional Client has received Network World Magazine's Clear Choice Award by taking the top spot in a competitive desktop search review. The X1 Professional Client (X1) is an award-winning desktop search application which quickly indexes the email messages, attachments and files located on a user's computer and other network locations, allowing users to immediately find the exact information they need. X1 was rated the top desktop search product of six tested in Network World's head-to-head comparative review and was lauded for its intuitive user interface and excellent search speed, among many other features.

"We tested six desktop search products – Copernic Desktop Search, dtSearch Desktop, Exalead Desktop, Google Desktop, ISYS Search, and X1 Professional Client," wrote Mike Heck, reviewer for Network World. "We also looked at the latest Microsoft Search, so we could evaluate the differences between third-party tools and what comes standard with Windows."

"Our Clear Choice Test winner is X1 Professional Client," continued Heck. "In every test scenario it proved superior – from the most documents types indexed and previewed, to type-ahead showing of results. It was also the only product to play well with Microsoft Office 2010."

"We're thrilled to have X1 recognized in such an important way by the experts at Network World Magazine," said Christopher Walton, VP, Products and Strategy, X1 Technologies. "As a pioneer in desktop search – having introduced one of the very first desktop search solutions – we've taken great pride in building and evolving a product that our customers have come to depend on. This validation from Network World, along with the enthusiastic response from our users, is a testament to the robust, time-saving application we have built."

X1 increases personal productivity that benefits both individuals and businesses. According to a recent customer survey, users of X1 Desktop Search save an average of 30 minutes per day, resulting in less time spent searching and a corresponding increase in productivity.
