Why you need a TREZOR Model T

I recently bought a pair of TREZOR Model T’s not because I needed them, but as a new toy. I have some crypto currency investments and secure them via two sets of two Ledger Wallets ( you can never have too much in the way of resilience).

What’s Changed?

The TREZOR Model T offers a significantly better user experience over it’s predecessor (below right) and my existing devices the Ledger Wallet (below left). It has a large colour screen which offers full touch capabilities.

Working as intended — Model T is a champ for crypto

I won’t labour this point much, as the primary function of the TREZOR Model T, it makes sense that using it to manage crypto is a joy. It’s quick to power up and it offers a touch-enabled quick and clean way to enter a PIN code which gets the device unlocked and lets you manage your portfolios.

You REALLY need a TREZOR

But the functionality of a TREZOR Model T goes beyond it’s usage for crypto currency. I made a bold claim with the headline — why you NEED a TREZOR Model T.

Not really a big deal …. actually several BIG deals

Secure Storage

What really impressed me though, was when I found out the TREZOR Model T had a MicroSD card slot. And this will provide encrypted storage handled by the device itself (coming soon!)

One device — many uses

I love my new TREZOR Model T — mainly because it’s the best at what it does. It excels at it’s primary task of securing my crypto currency. But, by adding additional functionality it becomes an essential piece of my personal data and online security arsenal. I’m in the process of moving all my crypto assets over to my TREZOR as I write this — the SSH logins for all my managed servers will take longer, but its a done deal.
