Corsair actually debuted its questionably useful Voyager Port earlier this month at CeBIT
, but it's just now getting around to making things official. By the books, this one is described as an "innovative solution to transform any USB flash drive into a powerful and flexible portable backup and recovery device," but really, it does nothing that a standalone USB stick couldn't do given the right software. Essentially, one plugs this into their machine, loads up the bundled NovaBACKUP 10 application, sticks in a USB flash drive and mashes a single button to start the PC-to-USB drive backup process. In other words, it's an unnecessary middleman. Unfortunately, Corsair
has yet to come clean with pricing, but anything over $5 or so could be classified as highway robbery.
