The T7 Touch is the latest addition to Samsung’s stable of external SSDs. The palm-sized drive features NVMe technology, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface and a fingerprint scanner for extra security. Priced at just under £200 for the 1TB model, is this the right external drive for you?
Samsung’s T7 Touch comes in three capacities at launch; 500GB, 1TB and 2TB with all three models having the same official Sequential transfer rates of up to 1,050MB/s for reads and up to 1,000MB/s for writes.
The drive uses a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Type C interface and supports UASP (USB-attached SCSI Protocol) and comes with hardware-accelerated AES-256 encryption as well as a fingerprint scanner to keep any data on the drive as secure as possible.
Samsung backs the drive with a 3-year limited warranty.
