ioSafe is certainly on track to come up with a perfect product. The refinements made from the first go-round to the second were quite large, but perfection has yet to be achieved. Luckily everything is right there, just within grasp and knowledgeable users will be able to take advantage of this article and get everything in place to get the most out of their SoloPRO. Even without these finishing touches the ioSafe SoloPRO is a great product. As a full time storage product reviewer and a part time consultant on these matters, I'm always looking for a way to make a product better and get it to the next level. Most people really don't look for ways to pull an extra 15-25MB/s out of a product, but hey, we are TweakTown after all.
When it comes to availability, I ran a quick search for the original Solo and came up with over 90 sellers listing the 500GB model. These weren't just your normal Newegg / MWave guys. Best Buy, Walmart, Meijer and Radio Shack were all listed. The flashy retail package has retail all over it and it looks like ioSafe is already in a position to make that happen. It normally takes a couple of years just to get your foot in the door, but here we are just 18 or so months from hearing about these guys and they are already sitting firmly in the director of sales office smoking a cigar with their feet on the desk. This goes to show just how well ioSafe's products have been received and how highly regarded they are.
There are many points in which we can praise ioSafe, but the top one is that their products work as advertised. When it really comes down to it, that is the only thing we all expect in a product and all too often we are let down. ioSafe is different, they say it and show you that it works as it should. To back that up they even put their own money on the line to help you if something should go wrong.
