Summary: OK, so I was looking for an external drive for an Ipad.. looked at wifi broadcasters for std drives and wifi dvd drives (samsung), then I came across the voyager air - purchased the 1TB version after reading the review that someone who bought the 500GB regretted not buying the 1TB. Running Ipad on IOS 7.02; loaded home dvds on drive using WinX DVD Ripper. then went on holiday with teenage kids and 4 ipads.
Summary: I bought my Voyager Air about a month ago and it has been a dream to use since it was easy to set up with both my iphone and ipad. The free app isn't great but its easy to use although it would be good if it could play more than just MP4's, why not mkv or avi's. Note you have create a password or others will be able to use your wifi box. The battery life is pretty good even when streaming video which is what I mainly use it for.
Summary: Great product ,I bought it to go on holiday as we all have a device to watch films when on the plain. There are no down sides as yet, would advise anyone to buy one lots of storage and battery life is very good, It come with all you need to plug in and charge it up when in Europe so save time and hassle looking for adapters .
Summary: Initial testing of this product has shown it to be very capable and easy to use. It's USB3.0 - so if you have the relevant ports on your PC - it copies GBs of data over in no time. I am using it to stream my DVDs to an Ipad - which it does very well indeed. The wireless range is not bad.
More than acceptable for a idea that is in it's early stages.

Summary: In terms of connectivity options, the Voyager Air is as versatile as can be. It can create its own Wi-Fi hotspot, so you can transfer files over a wireless network, but it can also connect to a public hotspot and pass that Internet connection through to its own clients. Other wireless hard drives I've tested have required you to log out of their network in order to switch to an Internet hotspot.
Summary: You should be aware that you can't connect to the drive over WiFi, or Ethernet, while USB is active. So leaving it plugged into a media player while you read/write on your PC/Mobile/Tablet is not an option; you will have to disconnect USB or turn the media player off in order to add media to the HDD via network.
Summary: This is an excellent little device when it is working. A self contained power supply and wireless that can stream audio and video to three IOS devices at the same time. Each time I have tried to use it so far, to watch a movie, the wireless connection keeps dropping out every ten minutes or so! I need to test this further as it maybe the fault of my iPad finding what it considers to be a better signal and dropping this one.
Summary: I bought the Voyager Air because I was looking for a portable hard drive with plenty of space. The fact this device could create its own personal wireless hotspot meant that I could also stream my media without having to connect it to a USB capable device. This sold it to me as it meant I could simply stream to any device while I was away from home. The design is excellent, its lightweight and feels well built.
Summary: Habe eine Möglichkeit gesucht im Urlaub mit meinem iPad Filme im Flugzeug und Hotel zu schauen. Das Voyager Air war hierfür ein super Begleiter. Einfach zu Hause via USB 3 ruckzuck Filme draufgeladen. Im Flieger dann iPad via eigenem Voyager Air-WLAN-Hotspot verbunden und Filme geschaut. Einfach perfekt und cool. Später im Hotel dann das Voyager Air (zu später Stunde bzw.
