The High-Performance Media Hub for Your Connected Life
Voyager Air has the capacity to store all your digital media, and the flexibility to let the whole family enjoy it at home or on the go.
That’s because Voyager Air is the first all-in-one portable wireless drive, home network drive, USB drive, and wireless hub. It’s easy to set up, easy to use, and the compact size and extra-long battery life make it easy to take with you.
Connect It to Your Home Network
Use Gigabit Ethernet to connect it to your home network, and use Voyager Air as a shared network drive. Consolidate all of your media in one place and access it from any Windows, OS X or even Linux system in your house.
Break the Mobile Storage Barrier
Smart phones and tablets are great for enjoying media anywhere, but even the most advanced phones and tablets have only 64GB of storage. Voyager Air comes with up to one terabyte of storage, enough to hold up to 800 full-length HD movies or 380,000 MP3 files. You’ll never run out of entertainment again.
Take It Anywhere
Voyager Air is ready to go at a moment’s notice. Batteries and wireless networking are built-in, so you can enjoy all your movies, TV shows, music and photos at the office, or on your next road trip, business trip, or vacation. Since it’s a self-contained streaming media server, you don’t even need an Internet connection.
Watch On the Big Screen
With Voyager Air on your home network you can also access your media from smart TVs, Blu-Ray players, video game consoles, DVRs, and streaming media boxes that can connect to network shares.
How it Works
As a Home Network Drive
Connect it to your router using Ethernet and it operates as a shared network (NAS) drive. It supports Gigabit Ethernet connections for fast data transfer, and will work with multiple partitions for easier media organization. Mac users can reformat to HFS+ for Time Machine compatibility. Naturally, Voyager Air isn’t just for media – you can use it as a general-purpose storage and backup drive, too.
With Your Video Gear
Since Voyager Air operates as a standard network drive, you can use it with smart TVs, Blu-Ray players, video game consoles, DVRs, and streaming media boxes that are capable of connecting to network shares. Check your gear’s documentation for compatibility information.
As a Portable Wireless Drive
Voyager Air has built-in wireless capability and an extended-life internal rechargeable battery for true portability. You can connect to it with your tablet or smartphone using the free Voyager Air app and access your library of videos, music, and photos. If you use mobile productivity apps, you can also download and edit documents. The Voyager Air app works with iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and most
Android phones and tablets.
Voyager Air supports multiple connections, and can stream high-definition video to up to five devices at once. The battery allows for up to seven hours of video streaming between recharges.
You can also connect to Voyager Air wirelessly from your notebook while you’re on the road, using it as a network drive. And, you can set up a wireless password so you won’t share your media with anybody you don’t want to.
As a Mobile Wireless Hub
If you’re near a public hotspot, you can enable wireless passthrough to share Internet access with your mobile devices.
As a USB Drive
Voyager Air offers a super-fast USB 3.0 connection that allows you to copy a two-hour HD movie in under 30 seconds. It’s compatible with USB 2.0 connections, as well.

The first problem I encountered was I could not load all my music collection (~45K songs) and have it indexed. Indexing would make it up to about 30K songs and then stop. I tried several times, and no luck. I suppose that a combination of limited system memory and miniDLNA must be at the heart of the problem. So it would not replace the iPod the way I wanted it to.
BTW, I first tried this same thing with the competing Seagate model and experienced the same problem. These manufacturers really ought to test their products with more edge cases and then either engineer them to work or put appropriate disclaimers on the marketing materials. I realize that most users won't have media libraries of this size, but OTOH Corsair promotes the 1 TB of storage, which means that they really should expect some users to be buying specifically for such use cases.
I decided to use it only for videos, and the much smaller video collection seemed to index fine. I used it on a couple of weeklong vacations where there was no real Internet connection, and it worked well. Videos were accessed from a Fire tablet and Android phone. Playback was smooth, even for some higher resolution files.
Because of its limited usefulness, it tends to sit in a drawer and gets used maybe once or twice a year. I pulled it out today and do not seem to be able to use with Android Marshmallow from my Nexus 6. An older Nexus 7 running Lollipop seems to connect fine, as does a Linux laptop.
As others have noted, the mobile app can be flaky. In my quest to get the music indexing to work, I wiped the drive a couple of times. On the plus side, this resets the device safely. On the minus side: you then need to upgrade the firmware, which takes several manual steps to get it to the latest version.
I may give the music thing one more time. After that, I suspect that I'll just use this as an (expensive) USB drive for backups and such.
I bought this for the short road trips where my kids will watch movies in the back seat on their iPad/phones. For this purpose, this works as a low cost solution. These data points really helps.
1) DLNA server settings are remembered and provide good service as far as battery is above 20%
2) VLC is free on iPad and it works almost flawlessly with Corsair Voyager Air through DLNA (VLC does not read from samba so DLNA is a must if you insist the quality video played by the world best (IMO) video player)
3) Data transfer speed is quite fast even through USB 2.0. I got 25~30MB/s when copying large video files
4) You can have multiple partitions with different format - Mac OS Extended and NTFS are supported. NAS functions and DLNA work for all partitions with supported formats. exFAT partition can be used only through USB.
Overall, for my primary usage pattern it works. I formatted the NTFS partition with block size of the largest (64kbyte) - I wish there's an option for 256kbyte as we have in exFAT. For those who's going to use this drive for the similar usage pattern, I recommend formatting that way since larger block size means less space efficiency for many small files but faster read/write for larger files like videos.
Now the down side - the NAS function. The gigabit ethernet port gave me a strong purchase motive since I needed a NAS for my Macbook Air reading and writing to the iPhoto library. I plugged in this device to my DLINK 645 featuring gigabit ports and tried to copy photo files. I found the copy speed is closed to 1MB/sec since the latency is like 1 second per file through connection chain of macbook - wireless N - router - gigabit port - corsair voyager. Probably copying a video file would be better but this was a bit disappointing point.
I will experiment more in NAS usage pattern but being mobile with media share through built in wifi and featuring passthrough (though I wish it remember the past wireless connections) was very satisfying thus a solid 5 star.
The good parts; the app is pretty easy to use and recognizes a lot of video formats. It streams 4k hd videos effortlessly and doesnt even heat up after a 2 hour movie. It looks really nice, feels pretty sturdy (other than the plugs in back) and in general does everything i want it to. Its write speed is a little slow (uploading something to the drive) but not unbearable, and once its on the drive it reads smoothly.
I did not get to fully test the devices battery life but it is at least acceptable as it streamed 4 hours of 1080p movies and still had a yellow light (above 20% i believe).
Overall, if you get a working model (maybe im just super unlucky) it is a great drive well worth its price, which is why im ordering a 3rd one to hope for a working one!
It did *not* just just show up on the Mac's network. It did not show up on the router's DHCP list either. I needed to connect wirelessly and enable Ethernet pass-thru for it to show up. There's no way to enter a static IP so I entered that into the router's table, re-plugged the drive and changed the SSID and enabled a password. At one point I needed to reboot the Mac which wouldn't update the attached server. Once everything was setup it appears solid. Rebooting or hibernating, the drive comes right up without needing to connect via AFP:// or SMB:// It's just there on the external server list and the connection is fast. Transfers about 30gig in an hour on my LAN.
The web interface is kinda primitive but has a couple of goodies, like a Google Drive and Dropbox app built-in. Extremely easy, the easiest part of the setup. Via the web interface I enabled Dropbox, logged in, copy/pasted the key, and the drive began to sync after creating a folder. Done. What I love about this is drive does not share my bandwidth, CPU, or physical drives for sync'ing. it's done in the background while the computers are all shutdown. Dropbox mirrors the drive with a 30day archive of deleted files. If the drive fails, nothing is lost and will sync up again when I replace it.
Via the Dropbox app I have 1T of storage and photographs on my phone with seamless transfers between phone, tablet, and desktop with a virtual drive while roaming. Never again do I have to "wait until I get home" and turn my desktop back on to access files or leave my desktop running 24/7 to access files. Don't have to mess with FTP servers and cumbersome sync issues between devices.
Connected to the Mac with the latest operating system I cannot copy files over 2gig over the LAN. I believe the cause is that Apple wrote their own SMB2 protocol which does not play well with NAS devices. I've tried forcing it to SMB1 but without luck. The drive still does what I want it to do sans the 2-4gig size files.
After sync'ing a large number of files the software became unstable. I was trying to sync 250gig. The screen always said syncing but there is no way to pause. I stopped it, but this required that I create a new folder and re-start the entire cloud backup from scratch which took several days. I could no longer connect wirelessly. The interface is just too primitive to see what is going on. I would add files which were never uploaded to the cloud backup. It would create duplicate files and get confused with UPPERCASE, duplicating hundreds of files. What a mess.
After fighting with it for several days I gave up and purchased a drive from Synology. It's too early to write a review on their drive but I'm already dazzled with the web interface which has a full GUI shell feel to it via FLASH - folders, shortcuts, status messages, and graphics which update in real time to display health and performance. It also has an email and SMS messaging system to alert me to problems such as overheating and SMART status.... so.... change is good.
This drive might be good for a small number of files and simple wireless applications but not for even a medium sized home network.
One thing worth noting for people using iOS devices AND Android devices: make sure all of your video files are in the .mp4 format and not the .m4v format. There is a file you can download from the Corsair website called "Quick Guide
Video File Conversion Using Handbrake" which shows you the best way to prepare your video files for both operating systems. Using third party software, you can convert your entire DVD or Bluray collection over to digital...it just takes time.
One thing that I would like to address is that the Folders tab in the app is not for looking for multimedia files on your viewing device. That's for finding video files that you previously downloaded from the Voyager Air to your device. If you want to upload videos from your device to your Voyager Air, you go to the folder you want to upload to on the Voyager Air, then hit the plus button and search your viewing device for the file.
Also, you can download a fairly comprehensive user manual from the Corsair website, or just do a google search. You'll also want to download the newest firmware and install it. Lastly, if you do have a problem or a question, the Corsair website will not allow you to submit questions about the Voyager Air. However, you can call Corsair and get technical support over the phone. My first charge took way longer that the 2-3 hours that I had read about from reviews. When I called, they answered promptly and were very polite and easy to work with.
My kids love it...my wife loves it...that rarely ever happens! Awesome!
