Samsung Portable SSD T7

SSD (Solid State Drive) is a storage device preferred by an increasing number of computer users due to its quieter weight, better resistance to shock, and faster read-write speed compared with HDD (Hard Disk Drive). And Samsung Portable SSD T7 is one of the most popular external hard drives in the market.


To user's satisfaction, according to the official Samsung portable SSD T7 speed test, the impressive sequential read/write speeds can be up to 1,050/1,000 MB/s respectively over USB 3.2 Gen 2 when coping data between PC and SSD or transferring files between two external hard drives. Besides, the reason why the T7 is warmly welcomed by users is also related to the following factors:

Light and pocket-sized. With a rough size like a credit card and lightweight, Samsung Portable SSD T7 can be perfectly held in the palm of your hand on the go.

Great compatibility. The portable SSD T7 is compatible with PC, Mac, Android devices, and more. And the interface is available to USB Type C-to-C and Type C-to-A cables.

Higher security. The T7 comes with AES 256-bit hardware encryption and you can also choose to set your own password to protect your data.

Multiple capacities. There are three capacities to meet your different needs: 500GB, 1TB, or 2TB.

Why test Samsung portable SSD T7 speed?

As we know, the official SSD T7 read/write speed is about 1,000 MB/s while a standard SSD had better have a 500MB/s sequential read and write speed. However, the speed sometimes decreases gradually, especially when you have used the SSD for a long time or the SSD is full. In such cases, it will take you a long time to copy files or open any applications on it, and even cause other unexpected problems.

Therefore, if you are using a Samsung portable SSD T7 or T5, it's wise to develop a good habit of running Samsung portable SSD T5 vs T7 speed test regularly so that you can master the basic conditions of your SSD, which allows you to know when is the best time to optimize it to keep the computer run smoothly.
