The Corsair Voyager Air wireless hard drive offers multiple connectivity options and long battery life, as well as apps for Android and iOS.

Corsair Voyager Air review

 

Portable hard drives have become something of an essential for anyone with a lot of data. If you're a bit old, like us, then you'll remember the days when moving lots of data was an utter pain. From an Iomega Zip drive with 100mb of storage, to early...

The ultimate in flexibility, fast USB 3.0 transfers, good wired network speeds, decent battery life

Expensive, Copying files to the drive over Wi-Fi is slow

The Corsair Voyager Air is a nice little device. It has clearly been designed to be the most useful thing it can possibly be. It's a portable hard drive, it's a wireless drive, it's a mini-NAS. Honestly, the only way Corsair could have made it more...

Labs Brief: Corsair Voyager Air

No Windows software

 

USB 3.0 read speed is about 90 MB/s. Write speed copying a full disk was about the same as for SATA disks the same size ; Wired Ethernet connectivity was easy to set up

Slick mobile solution

 

Overall this driver offers exceptional value, usability and quality. Considering the mobile app quality, storage size and speed, USB3 ethernet and Wifi connectivity, and self powered packaging the Voyager Air is easy to recommend.

This drive will be a brilliant solution to anyone who is looking for one or more of the following ; Mobile media backup or file dump ; All your media on the go ; Simple addition of 1TB of storage for home, school, or work ; For extreme mobile users,...

A couple of feaures were a bit strange though ; The "play with" command attempts to use your devices default media player, but often will just add a track to a already existing playlist ; Due to limitations of USB, the device cannot charge off of a...
