Samsung Portable SSD T7 Shield Review


Provides protection from rain, dust, and drops ; AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption ; Offers the raw speed of a USB 3.2 Gen 2 drive ; Comes in capacities up to 2TB

Relatively short three-year warranty ; Not the fastest external SSD for everyday storage tasks

Samsung's Portable SSD T7 Shield is an external solid-state drive that's impervious to dust, rain, and tumbles. It's a durable and secure choice for outdoor workers and travelers, if on the slow side compared to non-rugged SSDs.

Samsung Portable SSD T7 Review


Tiny and ultra-light ; 256-bit AES hardware encryption ; On-par speed for its class ; Discrete Type-A and Type-C USB cables

Three- rather than five-year warranty

Samsung's Portable SSD T7 is a crowd-pleasing, compact external drive with strong security (256-bit AES hardware encryption) and a rough-and-tumble aluminum chassis.
