A new external storage device from Samsung Electronics, the portable solid state drive (SSD) T7 Touch offers a compact design and fast transfer speeds, along with data protection using a built-in fingerprint sensor.
Available in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB sizes, and with a read speed of 1,050MB/s and a write speed of 1,000MB/s3, the T7 Touch can reach its maximum speed when used with the NVMe interface. Ensuring reliable connectivity, the drive comes with a USB Type-C-to-C cable and a USB Type-C-to-A cable, and is compatible with Windows, Mac and Android operating systems.
The T7 Touch utilizes a first built-in fingerprint scanner on top of password protection and AES 256-bit hardware encryption. It also features a “Motion LED” that allows the user to determine the status of the device simply with a single glance.
With a three-year limited warranty, T7 Touch is available with a manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) of $129.99 for the 500GB, $229.99 for the 1TB and $399.99 for the 2TB.
“Portable SSDs are a massive market generally, but for our media-heavy world they are enabling technology,” explains Julian Mitchell. Samsung introduced its T5 portable SSD a couple of years ago and its small form factor, lightning-fast transfer rate and added security and shock-resistance encouraged professional content creators to use it in a number of ways, usually to do with moving media faster.
“Since the T5, Samsung has introduced its high-end portable drive, the X5, which holds terabytes of data and manages to transfer it in a blink of an eye—a blink these days is about 2GB/s,” Mitchell continues. “But now we have a shiny new entrant into the Samsung Portable SSD range and as you usually want from your media supplier, it is faster, smaller, lighter and cheaper.” To read the full article, click here.
