Corsair Voyager Air 1TB Review

Initial Connection

Now although you can use the Voyager Air as a standard external drive, or even connect it via the ethernet to your network as a single drive NAS solution, the real party piece is providing wireless connectivity whilst out and about. With the drive on and the wireless turned on, it's picked up as a standard wireless option on your mobile device of choice. We're using an ASUS MeMO Pad Smart tablet running Android Jelly Bean for our review today. Just select the Voyager Air, and you're up and running. You can use SAMBA browser of your choice. However Corsair provide a free app on both the Play Store and iTunes, so let's take a look at that.

So often companies try too hard to make their app a glorious spectacle at the expense of functionality. The Voyager Air app is all function.

In the settings by default you have everything you need to start utilising the drives storage. However, it would be nice to be secure, and nice to have the ability to still connect to the internet. Thankfully the Corsair Voyager Air provides WiFi pass-through functionality so you can keep your internet connection and, with a password, stay safe on even public hotspots. Should you want to stream to multiple devices without worrying about someone accidentally deleting your home movies then you can apply the Edit Lockout, which does exactly what it says on the tin.

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.
