Deal: Samsung's T7 Touch external 1TB SSD with hardware encryption and fingerprint reader is on sale at Amazon
Blazing-fast solid-state drives can come in many different forms, sizes and capacities these days. After we have tracked numerous deals on both internal M.2 as well as traditional 2.5-inch SATA-SSDs over the past couple of weeks, an interesting external 1TB USB-C SSD with very useful security-related features for Windows PCs, Macs and Android devices is now on sale at two well-known and reputable retailers in the US.
Both Amazon and Best Buy have a deal on the Samsung T7 Touch and currently offer the 1TB variant for a discounted sales price of US$139, which is 26% below its regular MSRP of around US$190. Only the black color variant is available at this discounted deal price. This external SSD further comes with high sequential read and write speeds in the 1,000 MB/s range, which is quite a bit faster than traditional spinning hard drives which are often used in external USB storage solutions. But the main selling point of the Samsung T7 Touch SSD is the integrated fingerprint reader, which allows a secure but also quickly accessible storage of sensitive data.
The strong AES 256-bit hardware encryption makes this external 1TB SSD perfect for backups, and its shock and drop-resistance also ensures that the Samsung T7 Touch is more durable than regular external spinning hard drives which feature rather delicate moving parts. More info on this external USB-C SSD can be found in Samsung's official brochure. Private and enterprise users who need a portable, external storage solution with strong security features like hardware encryption should certainly explore the Samsung T7 Touch for its affordable sales price of US$139.
