Samsung T7 Shield tested - review

Samsung T7 Shield tested – review

  • Samsung T7 Shield 1TB
  • Samsung T7 Shield 2TB

summary

The T7 Shield is Samsung’s “rugged” external SSD that can withstand splashes and dust thanks to its IP65 certification. This gives the drive an edge over the regular T7 and T7 Touch, which they can’t afford. In addition, thanks to the use of a new generation of flash memory, the T7 Shield is slightly faster than its predecessors, and therefore one of the fastest external USB drives we tested. Only Thunderbolt drives are the fastest, but you pay for it.

Tweaker says: Excellent

There’s a saying, not too old for crockery, but too old for drives, that never reduces the bandwidth of a big car with a box full of bars on the highway. This quote is for a computer scientist Andrew Tannenbaum It dates back to sometime in the eighties. If in doubt whether this statement, but with more modern forms of storage, still applies: of course many calculators have it calculatedIncluding the famous XKCD

Now we haven’t rented a station wagon for this review, nor are we going on a road trip, but we’re looking for an efficient way to transfer large amounts of data without a network connection. An external SSD is a great tool for that; Filling a terabyte drive across a very slow interface is after all nobody’s hobby. We tested Samsung’s latest external SSD, the T7 Shield, with a capacity of 1TB and 2TB. You can connect it via a USB 3.2 cable, for speeds of up to 10Gbps.

Now the name Samsung T7 may sound familiar, and it’s true: the South Korean company has already released the T7. There is also the T7 Touch, which has a fingerprint scanner to encrypt your data. However, both are normal external drives; The shield is a version that can hit and is also water resistant. We take a closer look at the new T7 Shield and compare it with the previous variants and those of the competitors. The 1 TB version costs about 170 euros and the 2 TB version costs about 320 euros. In addition, the two drives are available in different colors, namely black, blue, light white or beige.
