This drive has faster read/writes than just about every other drive. Conversely, it's also half the cost. Sabrent is really transforming its company to the top.


4 years ago.

The entry level NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD as this PCIe 4.0 SSD comes cheaper than any other PCIe 4.0 SSD in the market but you'll get half the capacity of regular Sabrent Rocket 4.0 1TB and performs a little slower than the mentioned SSD. This SSD appeals to niche market as use case for this PCIe 4.0 SSD is limited outside of application requiring high sequential R/W and 4K R/W so consumers (or prosumers, in storage hungry cases) may be looking for higher capacity SSD at same price instead.

It is great for windows and some small games and files that one would be using a lot.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data exposes youtubers that promote overpriced/inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
