Been a Samsung T5 owner for a while, and couple other SSDs.
Was excited that Samsung got a USB 3.2 SSD, which should be much faster.
NOTE: If you want to be able to take full benefit of the T7 Drives, You need to have USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 on your PC/Laptop!! Without the USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, it will perform pretty much like the T5.
I have tested on my 2019 Surface Laptop 3 with USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 support. I was able to get the full speed from the best, and also copying files to it. Seems to be very fast!! But!!! As the file gets larger, the speed/performance started to decrease. This is not noticeable if the file size is smaller than 1gb, but once the file gets larger then 1gb, the larger they get, the worse the performance gets. I have also tested the T7 on my 2014 Macbook Pro, with USB 3.0. The speed test shows that its about the same speed as the T5.
Bottom line, When transferring smaller files, the T7 is super fast!!! As file size gets bigger, especially lager than 1gb files, you will start to see some performance/speed decrease. Since I do a lot of video editing, and files can be huge, this can be a problem for me. I think I will wait to upgrade to the newer T7 drives. Until the speed can be improved, and more stable.
Here is my test, and experience
Tested with my new MS Surface Laptop 3 13", with USB-C 3.2
Crystal Disk Mark tests 1gb ( see attached photo for test details)
