In case you have got important photographs and documents, it’s time for you to backup. You can, of course, choose Cloud storage, which can be expensive depending on how much data you want to use. If we are talking of data that runs into many TB, go for a SSD drive. Just before the pandemic, a friend had a terrible time while moving around with his external storage drive between houses. The drive slipped and fell into a gutter, and what followed was a horror story in slow motion.

Samsung seems to have a solution in its T7 Shield portable SSD, which is the company’s most durable PSSD to date, carefully engineered from the inside out. It is shock-resistant from drops of up to three metres, while being IP65-certified as dustproof and water resistant. Despite the new rugged design, the T7 Shield is compact and lightweight, weighing a mere 98 grams.

We are talking about big performance figures. The T7 shield delivers a read speed of 1,050 megabytes per second (MB/s) and a write speed of 1,000 MB/s, which are the fastest transfer speeds currently available based on the USB 3.2 Gen2 standard. It is approximately twice as fast as its predecessor, the T5, and up to 9.5 times faster than external hard disk drives (HDDs).

There has also been a change in the surface material and software to solve performance degradation and overheating that occur when transferring large files. The company says there will not be performance degradation even when files of 2TB are moved at once, and heat generation is minimized.

It can store large numbers of pictures, games as well as 4K and 8K videos whether on a PC, Mac, smartphone (Android), or game console. It comes in 1TB and 2TB sizes, priced at Rs 22,999 for 2TB and Rs 12,999 for 1TB.
