Introduction to the Voyager Air Portable Wireless Storage Device
The Voyager Air comes equipped with an AC wall charger and a car charging adapter. It also has a very large capacity battery onboard for super long life on the go. This means that there is virtually no limit to the number of places you can use your Voyager Air drive. In fact, a single user can stream audio or video for up to 7 hours.
The Voyager Air comes in 500GB and 1TB capacities giving you plenty of storage space to carry the media and data you need. The 1TB drive is big enough to hold a treasure trove of music, movies, pictures, documents, and more. It can store up to 800 high-definition movies or 380,000 MP3 files. You?d have to take a mighty long road trip to exhaust that supply. And, you can access this content using your device's WiFi connection and you won't consume any content via your data plan since you won't be streaming using 3G/4G.
The Voyager Air functions as a standard portable hard drive and utilizes a super fast USB 3.0 port which is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0. This interface is very convenient and useful for quickly putting your data onto your Voyager Air drive. The Voyager Air comes formatted NTFS but can be reformatted to HFS+ for use with MACs and the MAC OS Time Machine® function. It looks really cool too.
Voyager Air supports the use of multiple partitions also. This can be useful in several ways. The drive can be divided into partitions for each member of the family can have their own content on a separate partition. Additionally, you can have both an NTFS and HFS+ partition on the same drive for use with MAC computers and PCs running either Windows or Linux based OSs. There's more of that flexibility we spoke of!
Here's a quick glance at some of the features and specifications for the Voyager Air:
The additional connectivity is what makes these drives really interesting and versatile. The Voyager Air has wireless capability that allows users of smart phones, tablets, notebooks, MACs, and PCs to connect via a wireless network broadcast by the drive.
Smart phone and tablet users can utilize the Voyager Air app available free from online app providers. This feature-filled app allows you to access and navigate your stored content. In wireless mode the Voyager Air can accommodate up to 8 users streaming music or up to 5 users streaming video.
The app is very intuitive and easy to use. We'll have a full tour of the app available very soon and here is a teaser shot:
PC and MAC users can connect wirelessly or by USB and do not need any software to interface with the drive. Although USB is the preferred method for manipulating your data on your Voyager Air, you can do so wirelessly.
The drive also functions as a wireless hub with internet pass through capability. This means that while you are connected to the Voyager Air drive via your wireless connection, you can also still access the internet by connecting the Voyager Air to a wireless network with internet access. You can initiate this pass through via a simple web interface or the app, depending of course on what type of device you are using.
The Voyager Air takes its connectivity a step farther by adding an Ethernet port. The Voyager Air can be connected to a network switch or router and utilized as network attached storage or NAS for short. It can then be accessed by multiple users on any networked Windows®, OS X®, or Linux® system to stream media or for file storage, media consolidation, and backup. The Voyager Air is the only device of its kind with this capability.
In the time that I have spent testing the Voyager Air, it?s been a wonderful device. I?ve used it on a couple of long road trips, in my home both as a wireless and as a NAS device, at a relative?s home for access to my media, sharing a movie on an airplane?the list goes on and on.
My Voyager Air makes trips in the family vehicle so much more pleasurable. The Voyager Air and my iPod Touch combined with the Pioneer AppRadio? give me enough songs for a drive to Mars and back. I also have video monitors in the head rests for the rear passengers so they can use their phones, tablets, portable computer, or a DVD player to utilize content from the Voyager Air. If you are into mobile media, the Voyager Air is a must have.
The Voyager Air can put a smile on your face and help make any journey more pleasurable. If nothing else, it should help minimize the number of times you hear "are we there yet?".
Quite often, I think I represent a prototypical Voyager Air user. BMX bike and helmet? Check. Corsair energy drink? Check. Boom box with iPod input? Check. Pioneer App radio and iPod Touch? Check. Corsair Voyager Air loaded with music to get me through my ride? Check!
I have an HTPC in my living room and it?s connected to my stereo system and my Panasonic G15 television. Having the Voyager Air as a NAS device greatly expands my library as the HTPC has only a 120GB SSD for quiet efficient operation.
Connecting to the Voyager Air with compatible devices is a snap!
In addition to the HTPC, I have one of the newer ?smart? Blu-ray players, a Panasonic DMP-BDT220. It allows me to navigate my network and use the media stored on the Voyager Air connected as a NAS device. The DMP-BDT220 can connect to the Voyager Air utilizing Windows SMB compatible shares. This functionality can also be utilized via ?smart? televisions that allow communication with networked NAS drives and wireless drives having Windows SMB shares.
Over the 2012 holiday season, we visited family about 3 hours drive away from us. 3 hours is an eternity to a 13 year old girl. The Voyager Air provided a great source of entertainment for my wife and daughter while traveling and at the house. They watched quite a few movies from it while mobile and using my Google Nexus 10 tablet and a micro HDMI to HDMI cable to connect to a television.
For some odd reason, they don?t enjoy watching (American NFL) football with me and my father. So the Voyager Air contributed greatly to peace, tranquility, and our enjoyment of the holiday season?and football season! This isn't my wife but her smile due to her relief at not being forced to watch football looked a lot like this.
Perhaps the most unique usage of the Voyager Air so far occurred earlier this year when I flew from my home in Georgia, USA to the Corsair HQ in California, USA. The Wi-Fi service on our plane was out of commission but, luckily this apparently did not affect the flight controls. A fellow across the aisle from me was very disappointed that he did not have wireless access and seemed pretty bummed about it. My Voyager Air prototype was already powered on so I told him to browse available networks and see if he could see it. He found the Voyager Air, connected to it, and enjoyed the Kurt Russell classic, Tombstone on the flight. Needless to say, I saved him from a long boring flight using the Voyager Air.
Perhaps you will be the next person to rescue someone from boredom by sharing the content of your Voyager Air via their phone or tablet?
You too can amaze your friends and colleagues simply by having the most innovative and feature filled portable wireless drive available today. The more I use the Voyager Air portable wireless drive, the more uses and situations I find for it.
Corsair Voyager Air - Passwords and Positioning for Performance and Security
The Corsair Voyager Air wireless portable storage drive is a device of convenience. It allows users to wirelessly access the stored data without the need for any wired connection to the device. However, this convenience can allow access to your data from unwanted users if your drive is not password protected. For this reason, Corsair strongly recommends that users enable the wireless password when using their Voyager Air in any location where unwanted users could attempt to wirelessly connect to the Voyager Air.
The process of enabling the password is very simple. The user can enable, disable, and change their Voyager Air password via the basic web interface (for PCs and for MACs) or via the app (for smartphones and tablets). The steps are the same in the web interface and in the app. The password controls are on the landing page of the web interface. In the app, they are under the Settings tab as pictured below.
Selecting the Enable button will activate the password function.
If you have not already set a password or if this is a first time setup, you will be prompted to create a new password as seen below. Enter a password (and re-enter it ensure it?s what you want). The password needs to be 8 to 63 characters long, with no spaces or special characters.That password will then be required to make a wireless connection to the drive.
We have also included a feature to help protect from allowing wireless users to modify, add, or delete any data. Using the EDIT Lockout feature will help in keeping your data intact. The EDIT Lockout options are ON and OFF.
Using both the wireless Password and the Edit Lockout functions will help you keep your Voyager Air content exactly where you want it. It will be convenient for you and your approved users with whom you share your password. We've also included the ability to reset the password in case you forget it. If you do reset your password in this fashion, we suggest that you reenable the password function and create a new password.
Resetting the Wi-Fi Password
If you have enabled a Wi-Fi password but do not remember it, you can follow these steps to reset the password:
- Make sure the Voyager Air drive is turned on.
- Turn the drive over and locate the small hole on the bottom (near one of the feet).
- Insert a paper clip into the hole, press and release. This will reset the Wi-Fi password.
NOTE: This reset will not affect anything stored on the drive.
Our testing shows that some of the same basic tips that apply to locating a wireless router in a home or office also apply to the Voyager Air. Please take these points into consideration when placing your Voyager Air.
1. Position your Voyager Air in a central location
When possible, place your Voyager Air in a central location in your home or office. If your drive is against an outside wall of your home, the signal will be weak on the other side of your home. If your drive is on the first floor and your client device (tablet, smartphone, laptop or desktop) is on the second floor, try to place the drive high on a shelf in the room where it is located.
2. Move the Voyager Air away from walls and metal objects like file cabinets
Metal objects, walls, and floors will interfere with your drive?s wireless signals. The closer your drive is to these obstructions, the more severe the interference, and the weaker your connection will be.
3. Change the orientation of the Voyager Air drive
There are two internal antennas on the Voyager Air, one located on each side of the drive, and wireless signals are often directional. Try rotating the Voyager Air clockwise or counter-clockwise to improve wireless reception.
4. Change your wireless channel
The Voyager Air can broadcast on different wireless channels, similar to the way radio stations use different channels. Just as you'll sometimes hear interference on one radio station while another is perfectly clear, sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others. Use the Voyager Air app to change the wireless channel.
5. Reduce wireless interference
The wireless networking built into Voyager Air operates at a frequency of 2.4 gigahertz (GHz). Many cordless phones, microwave ovens, baby monitors, garage door openers, and other wireless electronics also use this frequency. If you use these wireless devices in your home, your client device (tablet, smartphone, laptop or desktop) might not be able to "hear" your Voyager Air over this interference.

Voyager Air scores 4.5 / 5 stars at Pocket-Lint.com
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 useful is if it was able to make tea too. It is expensive, but given that it offers a massive amount more than almost any other portable drive, we honestly do think it's worth it. You could use it as a NAS on your network for all your media, then when you're heading off on holiday, disconnect it and you've got a portable media server for when the Spanish sun gets too much, and you want to chillax with a beer and some movies. It won't be for everyone, but it performs brilliantly and those who need access to lots of their files everywhere they go will love it. It's also miles more practical than relying on the cloud, which is what many companies suggest these days, something that's mostly impractical for normal people.完整评论
