Pros:

I love this little device! It's a bit heavier than you'd think from looking it at but I'm guessing that's from the battery and wireless equipment packed inside. Overall, it feels solid, sturdy, and well-built.

I was surprised how well it integrates with my iPhone. I downloaded the app and was able to change all of the settings intuitively and with no problems. The wireless passthru feature was definitely a nice touch and I didn't expect it, especially after reading one professional review talking about how annoying it was to keep switching his iPhone from his wireless router to his Voyager Air (the review was from March so maybe this is new?). All of my (two) devices are now connected to my Voyager Air, it passes my wireless router through itself, and I can browse and use the internet normally without any noticeable decrease in speed.

It also comes with enough cables for any situation I can possibly imagine: car port adapter, USB cable, eSATA cable, and standard wall adapter for power. I definitely see myself taking this on road trips and to airports in order to stream movies onto my smartphone. Professional reviews are reporting ~7.5 hours of battery life with the wireless signal on so my phone will likely run out of battery first.

I've been able to connect this device wirelessly but it took me longer than it should have. I'll say most of this was user error since I had never set up a home network before but part of it was definitely from the weird documentation (more below). Once set up, I've had no problems transferring files back and forth wirelessly.

Cons:

The documentation was very helpful for setting up my iPhone but not so helpful with my windows desktop computer. The booklet that came with it gives instructions on how to connect the drive to your home network via ethernet cable tied into a wireless router. I didn't have a spare ethernet cable lying around (it's still in transit) but I was able to find an instruction manual on their website that describes how to use the device and includes a small section on connecting wirelessly through a desktop PC. Strangely enough, the instructions online are a completely different booklet than the one that shipped with the device. This is more of an oddity than a negative and it doesn't impact the device since I got it to work eventually so I won't deduct a star for it. On a sidenote, there's a lot more documentation on their website and it's very helpful!

Other Thoughts:

Their website shows a comparison between their device and the Seagate Wireless Plus. I don't blame for the shameless self-promotion, I just thought it was funny.
