Samsung has released a new addition to its popular T-series range of portable SSDs (the existing T5 SSD still earns itself a place on our list of the best portable SSDs). The new T7 Shield stands out from the rest of the T7 SSD range thanks to its drop, water and dust-resistant design. Not only is the T7 Shield IP65-rated against dust and water ingress, it can also withstand a drop of up to 3 meters, all while maintaining an effortlessly portable 88.0 x 59.0 x 13.0mm size and weighing just 98 grams.
