Voyager is a compact docking base that lets you easily and conveniently check the contents of any standard SATA drive.
If you want to check out the contents of an older, swapped-out Serial ATA (SATA) drive without installing it into your Mac, you may want to check out the Voyager docking bay.
I upgraded my 500 GB MacBook Pro hard drive to 1 TB drive a while ago. In the future, when I see this old 500 GB drive on the shelf, I’m sure I won’t: (A) know what’s on it, and (B) won’t want to know badly enough to swap it out with my laptop’s existing hard drive.
If I had Voyager, it would be as simple as plug and play. I would just pop the 2.5″ or 3.5″ SATA drive in and plug the Voyager into my computer to mount it.
The Voyager Q has 4 ways to connect to a computer:
- eSATA port
- FireWire 800 (1394b) ports
- FireWire 400 (1394a) port
- USB 3.0 port, fully backward compatible with USB 2.0
So whether you’re doing data recovery or just need to check the contents of one of your client’s archived drives, Voyager Q could be a real time saver.
