If you are looking for a robust and particularly resistant external SSD in credit card format, you should take a closer look at Samsung’s new T7 Shield, which the manufacturer introduced today. It offers IP65 certification, which also protects data physically, for example in case of drops, moisture or dust. The portable storage medium comes with high read/write speeds and in 1TB and 2TB versions.
Samsung T7 Shield in detail
According to the manufacturer, the Samsung T7 Shield external SSD is aimed at professional content creators such as photographers and camera operators, craftsmen or outdoor enthusiasts. It is offered in three colors – blue, beige and black – and in capacities of 1 TB or 2 TB.
IP65 certification attests to the T7 Shield’s effective protection against water, rain and dust, as well as shock resistance and integrity even when dropped from up to three meters. The low heat conductivity of the rubberized case also ensures good performance at higher temperatures. Using DTG (Dynamic Thermal Guard), the speed is automatically adjusted at particularly high temperatures to keep the SSD below 60 degrees Celsius.
Up to 1,050 MB/s
The T7 Shield offers combined read/write speeds of up to 1,050MB/s. The SSD connects via USB 3.2 Gen 2, while a small LED next to the USB-C port provides information about the storage device’s current working state.
It also offers AES 256-bit hardware encryption and comes with the Samsung Portable SSD Software 1.0 including optional password protection.
The Samsung T7 Shield comes in a credit card format and is 88 mm x 59 mm x 12 mm small and weighs 98 grams. The T7 Shield also comes with extensive compatibility. Samsung’s new PSSD is not only compatible with PCs and laptops, but also with mobile devices, game consoles and TV cameras.
Price and Availability
The Samsung T7 Shield external SSD is available in stores starting today. The manufacturer’s MSRP is 149.90 euros for the 1TB model, or 279.90 euros for the variant with 2 terabytes of storage. More information is available on the manufacturer’s product website.
