Corsair launches Voyager Air multifunction NAS
Tuesday, January 8, 2013 @ 6:26pm

PC component manufacturer Corsair today announced the Corsair Voyager Air, an all-in-one mobile wireless drive, home network attached storage, USB drive, and wireless hub. Media and other data stored on Voyager Air may be accessed directly from a PC or Mac, or with a free Corsair app, streamed to Android devices or Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.



With up to 1TB of capacity, a rechargeable battery, and Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB 3.0 connectivity, the Voyager Air enables digital media enthusiasts to consolidate an entire collection of movies, music, or other documents for sharing on their home network or on the go. The Voyager Air can quickly be connected to a home network for easy access to media from network-enabled smart TVs, Blu-Ray players, game consoles, DVRs, and streaming media boxes. Available in 500GB and 1TB models, the unit provides enough storage to hold up to 800 full-length HD movies or 380,000 MP3 files. The Voyager Air can also function as a shared home network attached storage (NAS) drive by plugging it into a network router through its built-in Gigabit Ethernet interface. It can then be accessed by multiple users on any networked Windows, OS X, or Linux systems to stream media or for file storage, media consolidation, and backup. Voyager Air comes ready to use in Windows format (NTFS) but Mac users can easily reformat to HFS+ for Time Machine compatibility and other native uses. The drive may be partitioned for easier organization of media and user files. Other features of the Voyager Air include USB 3.0 connectivity, and wireless network extension capabilities for existing 802.11g/n networks. Corsair is expecting availability of the Voyager Air at retail in early February. The 500GB model retails for $180, and the 1TB sells for $220. Both capacities are available in glossy red or soft-touch grey.
