Corsair has sent us their red version of the Voyager Air. The product will become available in the colors, red and black. Our particular sample is a 1TB storage unit that can be connected via USB (2.0/3.0)and Gigabit Ethernet. But it also functions as a wireless WiFi external storage drive for streaming media and packing in data and files for remote usage.
The Voyager Air from Corsair is a USB 3.0-capable high speed external and includes options for wireless streaming over desktop PC, tablets, and smartphones (Android / iOS app), but if you connect it to your router via the Gigabit Ethernet port that'll work as well.
Drive contents and media that way can be shared with everyone simultaneously on your home network. Our initial measurements show that the HDD is rated at roughly 100MB/sec for reads. Sure, that is not comparable with modern age SSD and NAND Flash storage but for its purposes it'll be just fine. Included are a small manual and USB 3.0 cable, DC power-USB cable, USB car adapter, accessory pouch, wall adapter and connecting plug piece for UK/EU power sockets.
The design of unit is a little bigger than what you'd normally expect, but the Voyager air has way more technology embedded as well alongside a powerful lithium power battery. The battery life indicator lights up green if the Voyager Air has more than 75 percent of juice left, amber when it has less than 75 percent, and red when it has less than 5 percent. The lightning bolt to the right of the battery life indicator glows blue when the Voyager Air is charging. There are two buttons on the front side, the far left one is power /on/off and to the right the slider en/disables WIFI mode.
At the backside we see the power connector, USB 3.0 connector and a Gigabit jack for Ethernet. The unit measures 5.5 x 3.3 x 1.0 inches, a little bit bigger than your average storage unit but remember, it has a battery, extra connectivity and embedded WIFI (802.11g/n) single band.
