The T7 Shield features an IP65 water resistant aluminum casing that is able to hold up to rain and dust, plus it offers crush resistance and protection from drops up to 9.8 feet high.

A rubberized exterior encases the aluminum to keep the SSD safe, and because it is the size of a business card, it is ideal for use when traveling. It comes in black, beige, and blue.

The T7 Shield features read speeds of up to 1050MB/s and write speeds of up to 1000MB/s, which Samsung says is more than 1.9x faster than SATA-based portable SSDs.


According to Samsung, the T7 Shield is compatible with PCs, laptops, mobile devices, game consoles, and more. It is priced at $160 for 1TB and $290 for 2TB, and it is available from Samsung's website.

Are you actually trying to compare low speed external SSD to high speed internal SSD that apple uses?
Internal ssd is always going to be faster. Yet, it does not have that dramatic real world usage difference.

Don’t make excuses for it; Apple charges too much for SSD upgrade. That is just a fact.

Yes. Yes I am.

Would you like to discuss Apple’s use of 5400rpm spinners?

$160 for a terabyte. How much does Apple charge for a terabyte that doesn’t even come with a nice case around it?

Samsung's T7 drives are nice (I have several) but I've never looked at one and thought, "this is great, but why can't they make a version that will still work after I hit with a golf club?"

They really need to offer a 4TB option. Been stuck at 2TB as their top offering for years.

Not worth engaging with this. Apple internal drive at 7x the speed with cooling, etc. — these facts are lost on those that don’t understand the benefits of internal vs external — they just look at price.
