Vizo Uranus Review


Vizo have sent plenty of bits and bobs my way over the last couple of years and one area of products they keep making and keep improving on is their HDD enclosures. Today I have one such product, the Uranus (that’s yur-uh-nus, not…) which has a sleek blue finish. Will it live up to Vizo’s reputation? Let’s find out.
