Times are changing, we have a thirst and need to access our data quickly and easily. It is one of the main reasons why NAS units, home servers and streaming storage solutions have become quite popular. With that trend continuing in the upcoming years we're going to see many new products as we don't only need to connect to our content and media with the PC anymore, we also like to stream music and movies onto our phones and tablets as well.
The bros at Corsair launched the Voyager Air, an external portable storage unit loaded with features so that you can easily connect to it. It allows you to connect it though USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes as a nice a 1000 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor ordered to move or stream your content from. The usability of a device like this can be seen a bit as a NAS (network attached storage), which you place inside your network to be able to access content like your music, documents, photo's and video's. All content stored on the Voyager Air can be accessed directly from a PC or Mac, or with a free Corsair app so you can access and stream to Android devices or your Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices.
There's another advantage as well. Many network enabled smart TV's, Blu-ray players, game consoles can access a solution like this, meaning you can stream content on these devices as well. As mentioned in the second paragraph already, Voyager Air provides multiple options to connect through, including 802.11n/b/g Wi-Fi connections at ranges up to 90 feet, and it can stream high-definition video to up to five devices at once.
The fun thing is, there's no real need for a continuous power source as it comes with a battery. So yeah, you don't even need to plug in the device towards a power source, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to seven hours of video streaming between recharges. All in all a very interesting product that we just had to peek at, please browse onwards to the next page where we'll start-up the review.
