Corsair Voyager Air 1TB Review

Up Close

As you'd expect from Corsair the packaging is clear and easy on the eye. A simple specification table on the rear tells you everything you need to know.

Inside everything is nearly packed. Thankfully there is a wide selection of charging options available. You can just charge via a USB port, or with the wall-charger, or if you're on the move via the 12v car charging port.

The speediest charging option is via the DC port on the rear, and a cable is provided for that. There is also a USB 3.0 cable for connecting it as a standard external drive, should you wish.

The drive itself is compact and light. At 380g it is not a featherweight but not exactly heavy either. It's akin to a couple of smartphones, albeit slightly larger. Still you could stick it in a pocket and not feel weighed down by it, which is obviously important in a portable device.

At the rear things are as simple as you'd expect. DC for charging, USB 3.0 for charging/data transfer and an ethernet port for NAS duties.

At the front we have an on/off power switch and a WiFi switch. It's not complicated, but then it's only a drive.

nice review and a nice bit of gear, My only concern would be how easy it will be to replace the battery, as they only have so many recharges before they don't hold the charge so long. And that will be long before the hdd is dead

I want one now, in my rig i only have so much storage and this would most certainly help with my music library and other crap i have on here

The HUGE selling point is you can use this on WiFI or usb so if you have a smartphone with no unlimited data plan and you like to sync your devices for back up: you will not waste any precious data usage for that. Which is helpful if you have many music files,movies and etc...

Really interested in one of these. Can see it coming in so useful when travelling. Especially for streaming films to tablets while on the road and storing photos while you go. Good review too, thanks. I shall be looking to pick one up when they come out.
