How much storage is too much? We are not quite sure. Add the need for speed, and Samsung’s T7 series of portable SSDs (PSSD) are certainly in need of an upgrade. And the good news is that the replacement is already here. The new PSSD T9 offers double the transfer speed with the latest protocols in place, ready for all your high-definition videos. And this upgrade couldn’t have come at a better time, with the latest iPhones ready to sync over USB Type-C.
The T9 is almost the same size as that of the T7, but sports a new bumper skin design that is harder with a nice textured finish enhancing the grip. Our experience with the T7 series says the new bumper would be less prone to disintegrate into a sticky mess in humid and dusty Indian conditions. What more? The drive is enclosed in an aluminium casing that, according to Samsung, can withstand drops from three metres.
