Packaging & Contents
The package of the Vizo Uranus is a bit larger than what is common for external hard drive enclosures. The outer box is kept in white, with a picture of the enclosure in front, with the most important features. There is also a sticker letting the potential buyer know what color they will be getting. The back lists all the features in detail in English and includes a picture with all three available colors.
The outer box is quite thin, so Vizo has included a white, sturdy inner box to protect everything during shipping. All the contents are neatly packed inside the card board box. Vizo opted for foam paddings instead of cardboard or Styrofoam. The big advantage of such material is the fact that it will survive a fall and retain its original form.
Vizo includes everything you could possibly need. They are the first company to include a SATA to eSATA PCI bracket. These usually will set you back anywhere between $10-15 US Dollars if your mainboard or case does not have an eSATA plug. There is an aluminum stand of very high quality and an illustrated pamphlet with installation instructions included as well.
The power brick is nothing out of the ordinary. These are the typical kind usually used by manufacturers for HDD enclosures. There are smaller variants out there and it would have been great if Vizo would have opted for the smaller kind which combines power brick & plug into a single, small casing. The included PSU can accept voltage between 100V and 240V and outputs 2A. USB 2.0 can only handle 0.5A without an external power source.
