The Packaging

Last year the Solo arrived in a plain brown box, but it looks like ioSafe is all grown up now. The SoloPRO has full retail trim. I really like the package, it's one of the best I have seen all year; they've done a good job on it. On the front we see an image of the unit and it looks all powerful. Obviously the fire and water portion stand out, but aside from the big letters there is a short description at the bottom letting potential retail customers know the short script of what is going on. Also along the right side we see the capacity of the unit.

On the back we get some more details and then at the bottom a full breakdown of the DRS. What's really cool is that everything is pretty much covered on the outside of the box. You don't have to buy it and then get home to read the fine print. There really isn't any to begin with anyhow, something we really like.

Normally I don't show side images of boxes unless it has a features list or something informative, but I wanted to show off the package work since ioSafe really knocked this one out of the park.

Ok, last one promise.

The internal packaging was done very well, too. The main unit is protected with at least one inch all the way around and by more than an inch in the places most likely to suffer an impact.
