CES 2013: Corsairs Voyager Air is Ideal for Media Enthusiasts   VoyagerAir K1 ON 500x393

Corsair’s Voyager Air does it all. It’s a wireless mobile drive, home network attached storage, USB drive, and wireless hub. It offers 500GB and 1TB of capacity, a rechargeable battery, Wi-Fi, ethernet, and USB 3.0 connectivity. Digital media enthusiasts will be able to consolidate their entire collection for easy sharing on their home network and on the go.

Corsair Air can be accessed from a PC, Mac, Android or Apple device, smart TVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles, DVRs, streaming media – anything network enabled that can stream. The Voyager Air can hold almost a thousand movies and hundreds of thousands of songs.

Voyager Air will be available in early February for purchase from Corsairs worldwide network of distributors. The 500GB model will retail for $179.99 and the 1TB model for $219.99. They’ll come in glossy red and soft-touch grey, the latter of which is a pretty silly name for a color.

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.

Available in 500GB and 1TB models, Voyager Air provides enough storage to hold up to 800 full-length HD movies or 380,000 MP3 files.

Wireless Mobile Storage for Media Streaming on the Go

With Voyager Air, multiple users can enjoy their stored movies, TV shows, music and photos at the office, on a road trip, or while on vacation. Voyager Air is a self-contained streaming media server with a wireless hub built-in, so Voyager Air can wirelessly stream digital content to other playback devices directly with no Internet connection required. Voyager Air provides solid, fast, and secure 802.11n/b/g Wi-Fi connections for multiple users at ranges up to 90 feet, and can stream high-definition video to up to five devices at once. The high-capacity rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to seven hours of video streaming between recharges.

Shared Network Storage for the Home

Voyager Air can also function as a shared home network attached storage (NAS) drive by simply plugging it into a network router via its built-in Gigabit Ethernet interface. 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. Voyager Air comes ready to use in Windows format (NTFS) but Mac users can easily reformat to HFS+ for Time Machine® compatibility. The Voyager Air drive may be partitioned for easier organization of media and user files.
