The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Corsair's Voyager Air is a portable drive that features not only built-in WiFi for access via your smartphone, but also includes a USB 3.0 connection and Ethernet connection which make it easy to turn the Voyager Air into a NAS. When using it to stream to their mobile devices, CNET said it "worked very well," and when used with various devices simultaneously, "the streaming was smooth." When putting files on the device Laptop Magazine got a "transfer rate of 36.9 MBps" over USB 3.0, with Gadget Review calling it a "pretty speedy drive." The Voyager Air didn't just perform well with data transfer -- in the battery life department, it lasted "5 hours and 40 minutes" when Laptop Magazine watched a video. And don't worry about it taking up too much space, as PC Mag said "it is a bit larger than the usual pocket drive, but it will still fit nicely into your commute bag." Though it may seem a bit pricey when compared to the higher-scored Seagate Wireless Plus, the Voyager Air's combination of speed, battery life and Ethernet port make it a viable solution for someone looking for a WiFi-capable portable drive.
