The Packaging


Apparently ioSafe didn't put a lot of thought into a retail package for the Solo. The system came in a plain white box.

The inner packaging was very well sorted and it protects the system very well.

The front of the Solo lights up a cool blue that shines through the vent holes. As you can see, there isn't a power button on the front.

The side of the unit is solid. You can see from this angle that the Solo uses a clam shell design; the front, top and bottom are all made from the same piece of metal.

The power button, data and power cables are located on the back.

The other side is identical to the first.

Each unit is serial numbered with a plate on the bottom. Also, on the rear a security mechanism is installed into the frame of the Solo.
