DStvs Public Relations company were kind enough to send me a USB Drifta to review. My love/hate relationship with DStv mobile is well documented on this site. I don’t hold back when they mess up, and try to be fair at other times. I am still “banned” on their DStv mobile forums. So kudos to the PR department for moving past all of that and sending through the device for review. After some delays to the courier (snow, roads closed between Jhb and Dbn) the device finally arrived. Below are the unboxing pictures. The detailed review will follow in due course (detailed review available, click here).
The parcel arrived from the courier double bagged and in a sealed envelope.
Inside the parcel was a personalised letter saying how the DStv mobile team would love me to try out the USB Drifta and providing instructions on whom to call to get it activated.
The box itself was tied up in cute red ribbons.
The box it comes in is small and practical. Measuring about 11cm by 11cm. It isn’t too over the top in design or style, not quite as sparse, crisp and elegant as Apple designed material but clean design and looks good. It is similar dimensions to the original Drifta box, but about a third of the depth. The size really is dictated by the contents.
Below are pictures of the box taken from all angles so you can see all of the information provided.
When you open the box you are immediately presented with the USB Drifta, nicely protected by a cardboard inlay and covered in a little plastic sleeve.
Under the red insert are all the extras.
So inside the box when all is removed we have the four items :
1. Quick Start guide
2. USB extension cable
3. Installation CD
4. The USB Drifta Device
The USB Drifta itself is nice and small. Measuring just 8cm long and about 2cm wide. It is a bit chunkier than a memory stick, but still rather cute.
That’s it for the unboxing. Look forward to the review which should come within the next few days.
