The latest portable drive to join Samsung’s T7 family is cheaper than ever for Amazon Prime Day. The new T7 Shield in 1TB has dropped to a new record low of $100, which is $60 off its normal price. The 2TB model costs $90 and is also down to just $200. This SSD is only a few months old since Samsung released it in April, so now is a great opportunity to snag it while you can pick it up at a discount.

The T7 shield is essentially a tougher version of the standard T7. It has a rubberized exterior surrounding its aluminum body, giving it extra durability and drop protection. Samsung claims the SSD can easily withstand drops from 9.8 feet, and it also has an IP65 rating for water and dust resistance. That might sound like overkill for a device you might want to keep in your backpack or on your desk at home, but it adds extra security if you ever need to travel with the SSD and work with it on the go.
In terms of performance, the T7 Shield supports read/write speeds of up to 1050MB/s and 1000MB/s respectively and works with most devices including Macs, PCs, Android devices, gaming consoles and more. That’s partly because the drive comes with both USB-C-to-C and USB-C-to-A cables, so you can connect it to many different types of devices. We also appreciate that it also supports AES 256-bit hardware encryption.
