Samsung’s T-series SSDs are popular storage solutions for photographers and cinematographers alike, due to their compact form factor and relatively fast speeds. Now, creatives have another option to choose from in the lineup with Samsung’s announcement of the T7 Shield, a ruggedized version of its original T7 drive that’s IP65 certified for water and duster resistance.
The Samsung T7 Shield offers the same specifications as the original T7, with sequential read and write speeds up to 1,050MB/s and 1,000MB/s, respectively. It uses a USB 3.2 Gen 2 USB-C connection and features a silicone cover that helps it survive drops up to three meters (10′).
Even with the silicone protector wrapped around the device, Samsung claims the SSD shouldn’t have any problems keeping cool during use.
The Samsung T7 Shield SSD is available with black, blue and tan silicone covers, and comes with both a USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A cable. The 1TB version is currently listed for $134.99, while the 2TB version is retailing for $239.99.
