REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
The Sabrent Rocket Pro Portable SSD brings to market all that we could hope for in a typical consumer SSD, and then some. It covers all capacities ranges, right up to 4TB where few others might not venture, has a one-year warranty that becomes two-year with registration, and has the performance that appears to be hitting the sweet spot for the consumer.
As much as I am a lover of Thunderbolt 3 and the 8TB XTRM-Q that we reviewed here, Thunderbolt 3 just doesn’t seem to have had the success that many believed it would. It is a very limited and niche feature, mind you one that gets us up to 2.8GB/s transfer speeds and increases business efficiency significantly. The Rocket Pro hits that mid-point very well, where we have capacities up to 4TB, as well as performance of 1GB/s read and write which seems to have become the industries sweet spot for mobile portable transfer speeds.
Sabrent’s build quality for all of their external SSDs is beyond reproach, their warranty is always above that of the industry standard, and pricing is commensurate with what we might expect for such a great product.
