Trezor Model T overview
To users of the Trezor One, the Model T will feel both familiar and different at the same time. The Model T is noticeably bulkier than the previous model, but remains small enough to fit snugly in the palm of your hand.
The biggest difference is the new screen, whose colorful touch display replaces both the monochrome screen and two buttons of the Model T’s predecessor. Support for SD cards has also been integrated, though it has yet to serve any use.
For those that use two-factor authentication, the device can equally be used as an added layer of security for logins under the U2F standard. To top it off, it also functions as a password manager.
Trezor Model T pros and cons
- It can be used across a range of platforms and applications
- A huge amount of coins and tokens supported (1000+)
- Open-source firmware
- Small form factor
- Price makes it one of the more expensive devices on the market
- The screen can be difficult to type on
- No use for the SD card slot at the time of writing
Trezor Model T Pricing
As of writing in February 2020, the Trezor Model T is priced at $169.99.
To be sure of the integrity of a hardware device, it should be ordered only from the manufacturer or official resellers. Ensure that the packaging has not been tampered with before use.
The Trezor Model T follows in the footsteps of its predecessor. In 2018, SatoshiLabs added to its inventory with a hardware wallet that improves on many of the Trezor One’s features. With a color touchscreen, an SD card slot, and support for thousands of coins, the Model T delivers many of the features one would expect from a modern crypto hardware wallet.
For those that don’t mind spending a bit extra, the Trezor Model T provides a much smoother user experience than minimalist alternatives.
