PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The Vi-On consists of two parts the main unit that houses the HDD, and a base it locks on to. Using the base is completely optional as the main unit can stand upright on its own.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The slanted design of the base means the main unit sits at a tilted angle when it's attached. Mesh along the outer edge and holes on top of the base are provided for ventilation.



On the bottom are four raised rubber pads. This keeps the base slightly elevated, allowing warm air to escape form underneath. Otherwise, it would get trapped and cause excessive heat to build up which can mean certain death for a hard drive.



Connectors are found on the back of the main unit and include an on/off switch, A/C adapter port, eSATA port, and a USB 2.0 port



Both the main unit and base are constructed of plastic with steel mesh along the outer edges for ventilation. Now that we've taken a look at the external design and features, it's time to open up the Vi-On and install a drive.
