Corsair Voyager Air
Similar to the Wireless Plus from Seagate, the Voyager Air is a battery-operated Wi-Fi portable media server/storage expansion for mobile devices. It can also work as a home NAS server thanks to the built-in Gigabit network port and also as a fast USB 3.0 portable drive when plugged in to a computer. This is nice gift for people who travel frequently and have a few iPads or Android mobile devices.
The good: The Corsair Voyager Air offers up to 1TB of storage to an existing network and is capable of wirelessly streaming HD content to a max of eight concurrent Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices. It can also relay Wi-Fi Internet access, is a fast portable drive, and comes with both wall and car chargers.
The bad: The Corsair Voyager Air's mobile app doesn't support certain popular file formats, and fails to automatically organize content by type. The device needs a faster Wi-Fi standard, and should allow for Internet sharing via its network port.
The bottom line: Despite a few shortcomings, the Corsair Voyager Air is an excellent way to extend your mobile devices' storage capacity and features.
