Samsung T7 Shield Portable SSD review: A rugged alternative to the T7 and T7 Touch

Samsung's T7 Shield is made to withstand harsh conditions and to offer the expected T7 lineup's speedy performance


Samsung's T7 is one of the best portable SSDs on the market. It's compact, it's fast, it's available in various capacities and colors, and it's competitively priced. But it's not quite the complete package. That's why Samsung introduced the T7 Touch a few years ago, which essentially added a fingerprint reader to the standard T7 to boost security. Samsung wasn't done there, knowing that its customers working in rugged conditions would want something equally up to the task.
