Very good except for the software

Strengths:

Integrated encryption. They include cables for USB A and USB C format ports on your computer. I have a T5 that I have used for years, with no reliability problems; so far the T7 also has been reliable. Compatible with USB 3.2, 3.1 and 3.0. Probably USB 2.0 also.

Weaknesses:

The software used to enable your host computer to communicate with the encrypted drive requires the use of a Windows Administrator account. This is terrible in 2021; that kind of incompetent software was typical in 2000 and earlier. So you can use the T7 under a regular Windows account, but you have to always type in an Administrator password to allow the software to run. Competently-written software does not require admin-level access to the computer to run. And the access software is not compatible with the access software for the T5. So I need to have both installed. Why is the T7 software not backward-compatible?

Additional Comments:

Good, except for the software. Samsung can do better.

Speeds up load times for PS4

Strengths:

Plug into PS4, format as extended storage & set as default storage then see load times drop 25-50%.

Weaknesses:

USB 3.2 Gen 2 isn't commonly supported yet, even in new computer systems. PS4 definitely doesn't support it.

Additional Comments:

Breathes new life into a PS4
