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.


Average

21 months 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.


Excellent

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