Samsung has announced the T7 Shield USB-C SSD portable, which, by all accounts, has an internal device similar to the T7 but with a more robust design that provides IP65 water and dust resistance. The soft rubber coating naturally makes it less scratching and scratching than the T7 steel design, and it boasts good resistance up to 9.8 feet. And, thanks to that plastic, Samsung says it can continue to perform at high performance, transferring up to 2TB of data without having to boot. Active Heat Control Guidelines which controls the speed of data transfer to protect the device.
The T7 Shield is available from today’s 1TB and 2TB configurations, priced at $ 143.99 and $ 260.99, respectively. It has transfer speeds such as T7 and T7 Touch (the last one I looked at here), transmitting read speeds of up to 1,050MB / s and serial write speeds of up to 1,000MB / s.
The T7 Shield is available in black, beige, or blue, and each includes USB-C to USB-C cables as well as USB-C to USB-A cables. It can be compatible with Windows and macOS computers as well as Android phones, game consoles, and more.
Samsung has sent a pre-production sample for it Qarka to test, and its performance is similar to that of the T7, although the USB-C cable showed a tendency to leave the port with little annoyance, which would have been worrying. Samsung Courtney Camp spokeswoman shared Qarka By phone call this issue is confined to pre-production laboratories and does not indicate a similar retail issue emerging from the brand.
As with previous Samsung USB-C SSDs, prices are likely to drop soon. But, if the plastic coating is not important to you, you can get it at the T7 level of 1TB ($ 114.99) configuration much less than the cost of this new type at launch. Otherwise, the 2TB T7 is now on sale $ 229.99and I think the IP65 protection is worth an extra $ 30.
