Portable SSD T7 Touch is a newly announced successor to Samsung’s popular Portable SSD T5 [Amazon] promising even higher performance, while adding a new fingerprint scanner and data encryption hardware. (A version without fingerprint reader – “Portable SSD T7” – is planned for later release.)

The new T7 SSDs feature read/write performance up to 1,050/1000 MB/s in a similar compact aluminum enclosure (58g.) with a 10Gbps USB-C port (USB 3.1 Gen 2). Both USB-C and USB Type-A cables are included.

Anker USB-C Ethernet adapter

Anker USB C to Ethernet Adapter [Amazon] provides a Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbps) connection for Macs, Windows and Linux computers with USB ports but which may lack Ethernet ports of their own. The device’s  built-in USB-C cable plugs into a host computer USB-C port or you can use it with standard USB 3.0 Type A ports via an inexpensive adapter (e.g Onvian USB C to USB 3.0 adapter). Other features include a compact enclosure with aluminum or space gray exterior and three helpful status indicator lights.

Anker USB C to Ethernet Adapter has a list price of $19.99 but is typically discounted at Amazon. Onvian USB C to USB 3.0 adapters were priced at $4.99 for two, when checked.

Sabrent USB-C enclosure for M.2 NVMe SSD

USB 3.1 Aluminum Enclosure for M.2 NVMe SSD [Amazon link] is a storage enclosure from Sabrent that holds an M.2 NVMe SSD only (not SATA nor AHCI SSDs). Features include a 10Gbps USB-C port for more than double the performance vs. USB 3.0 ports, UASP support, upgradable firmware, a thermal pad to facilitate heat dissipation via a heavy aluminum case, compatibility with 80mm (2280), 60mm (2260), and 42mm (2242) SSD form factors, and a dual USB Type-A / Type-C adapter cable. (Neither SMART data nor Trim were supported in our testing, however.)
