SAMSUNG are extremely well-known within the technology industry, producing mobile phones, wearables, televisions & monitors, appliances and of course, solid state storage.
Roughly two and a half years ago we looked at the SAMSUNG T5 SSD, boasting speeds in excess of 500MB/s and a tiny form factor. Today we’re looking at the successor, the T7 Touch, with faster performance and tighter security.
The most notable addition is the fingerprint sensor, locking the drive from unwanted access. The T7 utilises AES 256-bit encryption and will only unlock with the use of your finger or with a password. Furthermore, thanks to the nature of Solid State storage with no moving parts, and with a sturdy aluminium enclosure, the drive keeps things safe from drops up to 2 metres.
SAMSUNG have also boosted the speeds while still remaining on the same USB 3.2 Gen. 2 interface, with sequential reads and writes up to 1050MB/s and 1000MB/s respectively (USB nomenclature has changed since our review of the T5, USB 3.1 Gen. 2 is the direct equivalent of USB 3.2 Gen. 2).
Your choice of colour is between a classic black or stylish silver and capacity options are 500GB, 1TB or 2TB. Moving on from the T5, does the T7 Touch offer much more in the way of everyday usefulness? Let’s check it out.
SAMSUNG on the T7 Touch:
Transfer massive files within seconds with the incredible speed of USB 3.2 Gen2 on the T7 Touch. The embedded PCIe NVMe technology facilitates sequential read/write speeds of up to 1,050/1,000 MB/s, respectively, making the T7 Touch almost twice as fast as the T5.
