      Any 1tb or 2tb variations cheap?

      • +1 vote

        None in the Samsung, only seagate 1tb $144 but slower speed “ transfer speeds up to 400 MB per second.”

          Bugger! Thanks for looking! I like the Samsung ones, I’ve got a few. I’ve always had issues with sea gate external drives so have stopped buying them!

            @Kangaroo Jack: No worries, I know they had them listed only a week or so ago, so keep checking microsoft store while the 20% off deal is going may get listed again

    Can it connect to smartphones?

    •  

      With a C-to-C or C-to-Lightning cable yes

      •  

        C to lightning doesn’t work. I think you need some kind of adapter to power it.

      T7 is faster. No other differences.

      Sequential speed is roughly double on the T7 compared to the T5, also uses a USB 3.2 Gen 2 instead of a USB 3.0 interface, so older devices probably won't see much of a speed benefit.

      T7 also offers the T7 touch version which has a fingerprint scanner, which this one does not have.

        T7 touch version which has a fingerprint scanner

        To unlock the drive? From what I have read the built in encryption on these drives have been broken in the past.

        T5 and T7 both use USB 3.1/3.2 gen 2 interface. The main difference is that T5's SSD is essentially SATA3 based whereas T7 is NVMe.

        So, with T5, USB 3.1 gen 2 has more than enough bandwidth for it (T5 cannot max out that bandwidth basically), whereas T7, you could argue USB 3.1 gen 2 still doesn't offer enough bandwidth for NVMe (for sequential read/write). Random read/write, my guess is T7 has some improvement over T5.
