Corsair Flash Voyager Port
Packaging & Appearance
Packaging & Appearance
The Flash Voyager Port arrived in sealed moulded plastic packaging, holding it very securely and also making it very difficult for the device to be tampered with. Corsair have designed the front of the packaging to be fairly minimal, drawing maximum attention to the logo, name and strap line. On the rear, the plastic is moulded to allow the packaging to lie flat, with two supporting feet at the bottom. The back has far more product information, and is listed in various languages.
Inside the box is everything you need to get started. There is a small instruction leaflet and a miniature CD containing the NovaBACKUP software. Along with the device itself there is also a standard USB to Mini USB data cable of around 60cm in length for connecting to any USB 1.1 or 2.0 compatible port.
The Device itself has a fairly simple, but stylish design. Just two main colours (excluding the Corsair Logo) are used, and the effect is very striking and professional. It has a rubbery texture, with the base of the Port being a fairly thick rubber, giving it plenty of grip on most surfaces. At the back is the small mini-usb port for PC connectivity, whilst at the front the Corsair logo also acts as the Backup button. The USB port on the top is angled towards the back slightly, and is located in the rear half of the device.
Corsair were kind enough to send us a 32gb Flash Voyager drive for the pictorial and testing, which really does look the part when used with the Port. The matching colour schemes, as well as the drive fitting perfectly in the dock, means they compliment each other fantastically. If I were to be picky, my only complaint with the aesthetics would be that the Mini USB plug does protrude from the back of the device quite a lot, damaging the smooth look a little; it would have been nice to have this integrated into the device a little more.
Overall, I think the Voyager Port is a good looking device, and should certainly look nice perched at the edge of a desk. Something not mentioned in the specification is the weight of the Port, which is actually fairly low. It would have been nice to have it slightly heavier, to provide a little more stability when inserting/removing a flash drive.
