The ioSafe SoloPRO




The SoloPRO uses the same external case as the Solo, but is now an attractive black paint scheme. A blue LED is tucked away behind the front panel and illuminates through the holes when the drive is active.




There really isn't anything to get excited over the design from the outside, as it looks like a big black piece of metal. At 15 pounds you aren't going to carry it around like a portable drive either.




All connectivity happens at the back of the SoloPRO. Here we see the power plug, USB 2.0 and eSATA port just under a rocker power switch. From the back we also get to see the fan. During testing the fan never exceeded what I would call a soft, quiet state. My Noctua fan cooling my processor was almost as loud with the side cover off the PC. For those not familiar with Noctua products, they are designed to be silent.




One thing that did strike me as being different were the security openings at the bottom of the enclosure. The Solo had a single hole and the PRO has two.




The bottom has four plastic feet that elevate the enclosure about a quarter inch off the underlying surface.




Here is the accessory package. You receive a power brick, USB 2.0 and eSATA cable with the unit we tested. The USB 3.0 model will have a USB 3.0 cable included instead of the legacy cables we received.
