Some glitches

John Darcey, Amazon

  • Summary: The Viyager 2 started out to be a bit of a nightmare. Upon receiving it and pairing it with the Mobile app, we discovered it needed a firmware update. Seemed simple enough. But the firmware would not update and after some time online with Corsair, it was discovered that in order for the firmware to update, it needed the power adaptor, which is sold seperately on the voyager 2 model.

Run AWAY. Unless you like half useless products.

  • Summary: Product delivered in no time, thanks for that. Now after opening on 6-12-14 tried to use it with their program from app stores, and surprise I have a voyager air 2 with voyager air 1 firmware, which cannot be upgraded without the 5v adapter that it does not come with. I found that tidbit out after several days of trying to get it to update. The new version of their app is not at all compatible with the old firmware.

Some initial stumbles, but looks promising

  • Summary: I would NOT buy this drive yet. I just purchased one for an International trip, and so far it is an expensive brick. The documentation states that it ships with the latest firmware. As per support, this is not true, and it must be updated, as the newest version of the Corsair IOS app will not work with the installed firmware.

Smooth straming and easy setup

  • Summary: I purchased the new version of the Voyager Air after using one of the previous models owned by a friend. I had a problem upgrading the firmware, which is required by the latest mobile apps, and contacted Corsair. They took care of my issue and, to their great credit, did so in an incredibly quick fashion. The firmware upgrade accomplished, the Voyager Air 2 streams AVI's and mp4s smoothly and has pretty good wifi range. I have not yet tried any other video formats.

I really wanted to love this product

Dave R. "Mr. Critical", Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: You know, I really wanted to love this product. In fact, at first glance I DID love this product! It's sexy (if you can call electronic components "sexy"), battery powered, easy to set up, and beautiful in so many ways. I WANTED TO KEEP IT SO, SO BAD!!! But, when connected wireless to my cellphone, it would intermittently drop connection while backing up large files (which were zipped files of all of my pictures).

Works Well!

  • Summary: Works as advertised: I used it with the USB cord to back up first, then plugged it into my router's extra port with a cat5e cable and it shows up on My Network in Windows. Haven't hooked it up with wireless for the portable devices yet.

Awesome solution for traveling!

Robert E. Strunk, Amazon

  • Summary: So I was a bit skeptical on this; but went forward as most reviews said good things.... The Good: Built in battery ~7 hours WIFI works well, have to set up pass-thru as to not loose your WIFI connection Folders are configurable thru Windows Explorer and thru the GUI (able to create edit/ mange what you want) 5 concurrent connections either watching movies(the same one in fact!) music and photos. I tested this and works flawlessly, i couldn't believe it...

Works Well as Intended

Anonymous, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first portable WiFi device. So far it's been a pretty good experience with the hardware. I'm using a MacBook Pro and the time to load the Voyager is pretty good. Most of my usage is watching Movies or TV Shows on the road, in airplanes, hotels, etc. So far it has faithfully streamed the content to my Ipad with no issues at all. The four stars is for the clunky software and app that the Voyager uses.
