As a leading manufacturer of computer peripherals and accessories, Sabrent doesn't need much of an introduction. Founded in 1998 in Pittsburgh, PA, the company started out by delivering products like hard drive enclosures, display adapters and converters, card readers and USB hubs that incorporated style, quality and the latest technologies available. Since then, Sabrent's product lineup has continued to evolve, including the launch of its Rocket series of internal and external SSDs. These cutting-edge drives have quickly caught the attention of consumers and enthusiasts alike due to their ability to provide quality and performance at a reasonable price.
This winter, Sabrent released its latest NVMe SSD, the Rocket 4 Plus. Designed for enthusiasts, gamers and professionals looking for unrivaled performance, this compact, M.2 form factor SSD is powered by Phison's new PS5018-E18 controller and is available with up to 4TB of 3D TLC NAND flash. The Rocket 4 Plus also supports SMART and TRIM commands and offers features like advanced wear leveling, bad block management, error correction code and over-provisioning. To top it all off, the drive is equipped with an ultra-fast PCIe Gen4 x4 NVMe 1.3 interface to deliver up to 7,100 MB/s read and 6,600 MB/s write speeds.
The Rocket 4 Plus is available in 1TB and 2TB capacities with a 4TB version coming later this year. For this review, Sabrent sent us the 1TB version of the drive, which is capable of delivering up to 7,000 MB/s sequential read and 5,300 MB/s sequential write speeds as well as up to 350K random read and 700K random write IOPS.
