It seems like every product we review from Sabrent impresses us and the product we are taking a look at today looks like it might do the same. Today we are taking a look at Sabrent’s Rocket Q NVMe Solid State Drive which boasts speeds of 3200 MB/s read and 3000 MB/s write. The 2TB version, which we are checking out today is selling for only $249.99, which makes it very attractive for a standalone OS drive, game drive, or media drive. The drive is based off the Phison E12S controller and QLC NAND (hence why its called Rocket Q). Using QLC NAND Sabrent is able to bring prices down and increase storage size (the Rocket Q is available up to 8TB!), but that does come at the cost of endurance (compared to TLC NAND). Is the Sabrent Rocket Q worth picking up? Read on as we find out!
Special thanks to Sabrent for providing us with the Rocket Q NVMe Solid State Drive to review.
The Sabrent Rocket Q comes in a nice retail box. On the front we have a picture of the drive and it lets us know it is a PCI-Express 3.0 x 4 drive and in our case is 2TB. Flipping over to the back there is another picture of the drive and a link for more product information.
Opening the box up you’ll find the drive and an installation guide inside a small tin. I actually like the tin, it gives a cool unboxing experience and makes you feel like you’ve purchased a quality product.
