REAL WORLD FILE TRANSFER COMPARISON
We have put the Sabrent Rocket Q NVMe SSD beside the best in the business for our true to life data testing. In this test, we simply place 15GB files representing music, video, pictures and operating systems onto the target drive. We then copy each file from one place on the target disk to another, recording the time taken for the transfer.
The Sabrent Rocket Q NVMe SSD placed right where we expected amongst the best of the best SSDs available today.
REVIEW ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
When we first started this report we discussed the Sabrent Rocket Q NVMe SSD being 4TB and questioned as to whether it might become the norm in today’s storage world, as digital storage grows. As we speak, there are few, if any, other companies that will be marketing a 4TB SSD anytime soon…much less an 8TB. Sabrent has done just that. Does this SSD have what it takes to make it attractive in all areas to the consumer? Remember… Price. Performance. Capacity. Warranty.
Capacity… Highest in the business at 4 and 8TB. Warranty… 5-years is just about as good as it gets. Performance. Our testing confirmed listed specs at 3450MB/s read and 3000MB/s write. Value will be key here. This 4TB Sabrent Rocket Q lists at $719.99 which is a bit ‘niche’ but we think to be in a range that will still attract those that need this amount of storage. After all, this SSD is the only available 4TB SSD in the industry.
When push comes to shove… Kudo’s to Sabrent for making that big step forward. We can see by looking at the components, to include the Phison E12S controller and Micron 96L QLC NAND flash memory, that they chose the latest and greatest available. You simply weren’t able to build an affordable 4TB SSD for the consumer with yesterday’s memory… Micron 96-layer QLC NAND allows that.
Last but not least, let’s not forget that Sabrent also provides you with a free copy of Acronis cloning software via their Sabrent Rocket Control panel, which is available here.
