Fast Performance, Strong Security
The T7 Shield delivers a max read speed of 1,050 MB/s and a max write speed of 1,000 MB/s through its USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port. It is approximately twice as fast as its predecessor, the T5, and up to 9.5 times faster than a traditional external hard disk drive.

Carefully engineered by Samsung from the inside out, the T7 Shield is shock-resistant from drops of up to 9.8 feet. It also has an IP65 rating, providing dust and water resistance. The high-tech rubber exterior with Dynamic Thermal Guard controls heat to maintain steady performance even for large projects. The stylish rubberized grip prevents slips. Even though it has a rugged design, the T7 Shield is still compact and lightweight, weighing just 3.5 ounces.
Wide Compatibility

I have several Samsung T7 2TB drives. I picked this up to reduce the possibility of damage to those other drives in the field. The shield has a very nice and effective rubber coating encasing the drive. The speeds are as advertised and I'm very happy with the drive. Highly recommended!

Great for back-up

quite small with a good capacity, and perfect as a time machine back-up... Still took a while to transfer an encrypted backup (3-4h for 500GB)

I purchased its former T7 and this one. Read/write speed is around 1TB/s. It uses specific high speed usb-c cable. If you use other brand low speed usb-c cable, this SSD will not get 1TB/s. 2TB is not enought, hope Samsung can make a 4TB SSD in the future.

Smaller than it looks

This is such a solid build and fits in your pocket. I chose the Beige colour so it stands out on my desk. The password protection is very easy to set up and use.

Works great and fast
