Have you ever been on the road taking tons of pictures of a particularly beautiful landscape, when your memory card runs out of space and you dont have a spare? The Cirago Smart Mobile Storage could be just the solution to this problem. A 7-in-1 card reader is bundled with a hard drive and a battery, to allow you to copy all the data from your flash based card and put it onto the internal hard drive - a clever solution to a problem that hasn't been very well explored. Will this hard drive enclosure / card reader be able to keep up with other external enclosures, while adding some extra functionality? Let's find out.
Cirago, a China based technology company founded in 1996, has been on the rise as it continues to release products. It specializes in consumer electronics, computer peripherals, and IA products. They have two products on the market right now, other than the Smart Mobile. One is a mobile hard drive and the other is a Bluetooth dongle.
The Cirago Smart Mobile device comes in a neat package that lists the functions that it has. The front showcases the product behind a piece of cellophane, while the back lists many technical specifications. The four sides don't really have anything exciting on them, however. The case is held shut by magnets and is easily opened.
The box contains a few goodies. In the top part of the box was the drive already installed in the enclosure and the power adapter. Underneath the plastic that supports these two items is even more: an installation CD (if you run an older operating system), a short USB cable, a case and an instruction manual.
