The Samsung T7 Touch SSD is “approximately twice as fast as its predecessor the T5” and features cosmetic updates, including a fingerprint sensor. Rarely do we find portable SSDs that feature biometrics as an added means of access. Not only does it provide ease of use but it also amps up the security level.

The use of biometrics makes unlocking seamless and prevents remote decryption of stored files. It enhances security even if you’re not using a laptop with a fingerprint reader. The beauty with this latest external SSD from the company’s T series is that it allows for multi-user access. You can register a maximum of four fingerprints with the Samsung T7 Touch SSD. This means you can share access with family or friends.

Another cosmetic update to the Samsung T7 Touch SSD that was strangely missing from its predecessor is the indicator light. An LED light turns on during file transfers and when the drive is on its idle state.

Outside of the physical additions, the Samsung T7 Touch SSD boasts a write speed up to 1,000MB/s and a maximum read speed of 1,050MB/s. It uses AES 256-bit hardware encryption for data security and 500GB of memory storage with two additional options: 1TB and 2TB capacity.

Its construction is solid aluminium chassis, which makes it tough and durable. It is drop-resistant up to about six and a half feet (up to 2 meters). It features a single USB-C port which you can connect with the USB Type-C-to-C and USB Type-C-to-A cables that come with the device. The Samsung T7 Touch SSD comes in silver and black colours.
