Who remembers back when a floppy disk that could hold 1.44mb of data was the stuff of the future? I remember that, and I remember 5.25-inch disks that could hold 1.2mb or less (yeah, I’m old). Now though, companies like Samsung are making SSD’s that can hold 2TB of data on devices the size of credit cards. Samsung’s new T7 Touch SSD not only boasts rapid data transfer rates, but it can also be secured with your fingerprint. For more details about the new Samsung T7 SSD, head on past the break.
The new Samsung T7 Touch SSD is small in size (3.3 x 2.2 x 0.3 inches), but it packs one heck of a big punch. This credit-card sized SSD weighs just 2oz and can read data at 1,050MB/s and write at speeds of 1,000MB/s. These speeds make this drive twice as fast as the T5 model it replaces, and nine and a half times faster than a regular external hard drive. If you need to back up your precious files while you’re out in the field in rapid time, this is something you might need to look into a little closer.
Not only is the T7 Touch SSD ridiculously fast thanks to its USB 3.2 port, but it can also connect to a myriad of devices. The T7 Touch is designed for different hardware with USB ports and operating systems so that users can enjoy the drive’s benefits across iOS, Windows, and Android devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops, video game consoles, and more.
On top of the connections, you can also secure the T7 Touch SSD with your fingerprint, too. Up to four people can have their prints saved to the device, which can come in handy if you have multiple people working in your studio.
The Samsung T7 Touch SSD will be available in black and silver finishes starting in Q2 2020. The T7 Touch is offered in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB sizes, and will be priced at $129.99, $229.99, and $399.99, respectively. For more information about the T7 Touch SSD, head to the official Samsung website.
