Sabrent Rocket Q NVMe SSD Review – Is 4TB of Data Storage the New Standard?


The AJA Video Systems Disk Test is relatively new to our testing and tests the transfer speed of video files with different resolutions and Codec.


TxBench is one of our newly discovered benchmarks that we works much the same as Crystal Diskmark, but with several other features.  Advanced load benchmarking can be configured, as well as full drive information and data erasing via secure erase, enhanced secure erase, TRIM and overwriting.  Simply click on the title for a free copy.


The SSD Review uses PCMark 8’s Storage test suite to create testing scenarios that might be used in the typical user experience. With 10 traces recorded from Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and a selection of popular games, it covers some of the most popular light to heavy workloads. Unlike synthetic storage tests, the PCMark 8 Storage benchmark highlights real-world performance differences between storage devices. After an initial break-in cycle and three rounds of the testing, we are given a file score and bandwidth amount. The higher the score/bandwidth, the better the drive performs.

The Sabrent rocket Q provides decent PCMark 8 Test Results, right up there with other premium SSDs.


  1. You have the NAND listed as TLC in the 8th paragraph but, it’s actually QLC. Also, are you still hiring I sent you a couple of emails on January 30th of this year and December 30th of last year. And a tweet.

  2. As these (and all other Rocket Q units) are QLC, and therefore presumably use a TLC/MLC/SLC write cache: do we know at what the write throughput ends up being during periods when that cache is saturated?

    Ive got 4tb samsung QVO SATA drive that i got for £312 black friday deal…
    But i think this is the only consumer 4TB NVMe. Pricey tho

  4. This is the Sabrent Rocket Q with the branding removed. This is the ONLY company in the industry that we know of that actually uses copper branding to help with heat dissipation.

    > Samsung 970 EVO Plus does have this. as far I remeber.
