Corsair is very well known for its PC hardware. However, the company is about to take flight with the new Corsair Voyager Air. That’s because it’s like multiple devices in one, combining a mobile wireless drive, network attached storage, a USB drive, and a wireless hub. Even better, it works whenever you need it—even on the road.
The Voyager Air comes in 500GB and 1TB storage sizes. That top model can pack in up to 800 full-length HD movies or 380,000 MP3 files. Choose your model and stuff it with all sorts of digital goodies. Then, connect it to your network via WiFi or Ethernet. From there, users can access everything on the drive from a PC or a Mac, as well as through any iOS and Android devices via Corsair’s free app.
If a network isn’t available, the Voyager Air will actually make its own. That means that users can wirelessly stream content from the drive to other devices up to 90 feet. No web connection is required.
Other features include USB 3.0 connectivity and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to 7 hours of playtime. It also comes ready to work with Windows (NTFS), but Mac users can certainly reformat to HFS+ for Time Machine.
Corsair says that the Voyager Air will be this month in both red and grey. The 500GB models will have an MSRP of $179.99, with the 1TB versions priced at $219.99.
