Samsung recently released the T7 Shield – a Portable SSD that delivers exceptional performance and reliability in a durable, credit card size design. The T7 Shield is the latest addition to Samsung’s T7 Portable SSD family that is already known for super-fast speeds and award-winning technology. The T7 Shield offers outstanding durability and fast sustained performance for creatives and consumers on the go. With the ability to transfer large files with no performance degradation, the T7 Shield is ideal for high-definition video recording and editing.
“Creative professionals and consumers want durable, high-performance and reliable SSDs with the assurance their data will remain safeguarded, even when dropped, exposed to water or used outdoors,” said KyuYoung Lee, Vice President of Memory Brand Product Biz Team at Samsung Electronics. “The T7 Shield offers extensive compatibility, enabling consumers to use the new SSD on multiple devices including PC, Android smartphone and game console.”
The T7 Shield offers a new level of ruggedness to the T7 range and it’s Samsung’s most durable Portable SSD to date. This makes it perfect for content creators or travellers who carry large amounts of data but don’t want to worry about data loss from exposure to elements or life’s mishaps. With an IP65-certified rating, the T7 Shield can withstand drops of up to 3 meters and is dust-proof and water-resistant. Despite the ruggedness, the T7 Shield is compact and lightweight making it perfect for taking on the go.
The T7 Shield delivers a soaring read speed of 1,050 MB/s and a write speed of 1,000 MB/s – the fastest transfer speeds currently available based on USB 3.2 Gen 2 standards. While the specs match up with the T7 for the most part, Samsung has optimised the surface material and software of the T7 Shield, eliminating performance degradation and minimising overheating that might occur when transferring large files. This means you can transmit data stably without performance drop, even when performing data-heavy, continuous tasks such as high-quality video recording, editing, encoding and rendering.
Additionally, the T7 Shield has strengthened security (*256-bit AES, Advanced Encryption Standard) with hardware encryption so that consumer data can be safely protected even if the T7 shield is lost. All firmware and components including Samsung's world-renowned DRAM and NAND are produced in-house allowing end-to-end integration for quality you can trust.
