The Sabrent 2TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD Extreme Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-2TB) delivers all the advantages of flash disk technology with PCIe Gen4.0 x4 interface.
Based on TLC NAND Flash memory, its performance speeds can reach up to 5000 MB/s (read) and 4400 MB/s (write) when using a PCIe Gen4 motherboard. Using a PCIe Gen3 Motherboard Speeds will reach up to 3400 MB/s (read) and 2750 MB/s (write). Power consumption is much lower than traditional hard drives, making it the best-embedded solution for new systems.
The Sabrent 2TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD was designed using PCIe 4.0 which allows for speeds of up to 5000 MB/s (read) and 4400 MB/s (write), significantly faster than PCIe 3.0.
Note: In order to take advantage of these speeds, a PCIe Gen4 motherboard is REQUIRED. Otherwise, it will be a PCIe gen 3 speed at a max of 3400MB/s.
When installing any NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD directly onto a PCIe Gen4 Motherboard a Heatsink is required to dissipate the heat generated by the drive’s extreme speed levels to avoid thermal throttling and maximize performance.
The Sabrent 2TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0. Using a Gen 3 PCIe motherboard will enable the user to reach speeds of up to 3400 MB/s (read) and 2750 MB/s (write).

Super fast SSDI’ve only had this SSD for a couple of weeks but I can already tell the difference on how fast it is. Games load very quickly and the storage of 2TB is perfect for me. I’ve already downloaded a bunch of games and still have plenty of space that makes me feel comfortable for other things like video collections and editing files. I’m pretty sure I’ve read there’s not much difference between gen 3 and gen 4 but opted for this one anyway. Very happy with this purchase.
Lasted 16 MonthsLoved the drive Really fast booted windows in under 10 seconds, seemed almost instant on, but sad to say today it decided to start blue screening and dropping from my bios. Reinstalled windows on another drive, I have a m.2 nvme usb stick, so i popped this in it to salvage some files i needed, grabbed the files i needed. it dropped from the usb stick a couple times, so i know its bad, oh well, i decided when these m.2 flash drive nvme’s came out and i spent a hundred on it and it lasted me a year, i got my money`s worth. Well its time to buy another .. prolly going to get the terabyte one this time.. 🙂
Super fastMy pc loads in just few seconds. Almost 2 years since I bought and still working perfectly. I am trying to get another one since there is no more space available. Definitely a good purchase
Had to return the first one but the second one is great.The first drive I received didn’t work properly. After an easy exchange, the replacement works great and it’s very fast. Definitely recommend.
Works as shouldThis SSD is fast. I’ve been using now for 6 months and preforms flawlessly. Very dependable drive.
Very nice driveThis is a very nice drive and was easy to use and comes with software that allows me to clone my original smaller 500 GB drive, you can also change the partition size on the drive with that software if you wanted to. The software was hard to find as the site in the manual is no longer there but I did a search for sorbent with the software name and it gave the site to install the software.
Lasted 1 year,10 daysI had this as my main drive for a bit over a year. It was nice while it lasted with a sub 30 second boot sequence. Unfortunately a certain program seems to have killed my drive. Funny enough I have another 3.0 sabrent of same size which has been going two years strong. So..whether I get another of that one or this one again, who knows.

Sabrent NVMe 4 500GB setup Not using Acronis cloning softwareSabrent NVMe 4 500GB setup as I ended up seting it up NOT using Acronis.Motherboard:MSI x570 a-PROSamgung 500GB SSD16GB memoryBIOS system MBR(Warning-Save a back-up if your moving your data this is for your data safety and I take no responsibility for data loss. if your not sure you know what your doing…DON’T)I spent 7 days working with the Acronis software and came to the conclusion that it was not for me.1. unable to delete program after clone completing. Very large and caused m.2 failure when deleted.2. M.2 requires GPT not MBR and if your system was set up under MBR it will not clone with Acronis without changing the system to GPT.3. To find if your sys is MBR or GPT, right click “This Computer”, “Manage”, “Disk Management”, right click on your Basic drive (left hand side).4. if it reads “convert to MBR” your in GPT and (goto 7.) if it reads “convert to GPT” continue to 5.5. If a new install and you don’t mind losing ALL data and wiping it clean do this: open command prompt type “diskpart” type “list disk”, Enter key. You will get a list of all disk running on system. type “select disk (X)”, Enter key. the number of the disk you wish to convert. type “convert GPT”, Enter key. go back and check 3 and 4. Should now read “convert to MBR if all went well install all new Windows and software you want on clone M.2 (goto 7.).6. If your NOT into losing all your MBR files then: open command prompt type “diskpart”, Enter key type “list disk”, Enter key. You will get a list of all disk running on system. type “select disk (X), Enter key”. the number of the disk you wish to convert. type “MBR2GPT”, Enter key. This was a new command added to windows 10 and is -SUPPOST- to be lossless convert go back and check 3 and 4. Should now read “convert to MBR if all went well7. At this point you should have a GPT disk ready to clone. M.2 is new so if you have more then one M.2 slot you may try the other if the first one fails. install it and set it up as you would any new disk so it is showing as an active disk.8. GOTO Windows 10, search for “settings”, then “Backup”, under Backup on right side select “Go to Backup and Restore (Windows 7) yes, it said windows 7 but it works in windows 10, ask Microsoft why not me. Now you will “Create a system image” and can be copied to a DVD, network file, spare Hard disk but NOT the current system disk.9. Shut down computer, Remove/disconnect the system disk. restart with Windows install disk, goto trouble shooting and select the system image you save and install it in the new M.2. Remove every thing but M.2, reboot and it should reboot into M.2.10. Hope it worked for you. Now you can move the M.2 to any slot you wish and it should work.Tech did till me the M.2 will convert to MBR but my system did not accept cloning in that mode ????, could convert as a storage but not as main drive in my sys no matter what I tried would it run in MBR.New 6 Mar 2020 Upped to a 3 star cause this thing is fast, very fastUpdate: Has been working fine. In-out near 5000. I use Folding@Home and lots of gaming and was OK kinda with the AMD fan until I started the Folding program which has some programing/M.2 compatibility…the temp went 85c-95c. This is not an M.2 problem it is a software problem and I’m waiting till F@H gets more complaints with M.2 users. My fix…NZXT liquid cooler and now it’s 70c not cold but cooler. Normal idle 48c and see the boards the Ryzen’s run hot compared to I7, so I’m happy.

This Drive Is GreatI will likely be updating this review, as I built a brand new PC and would like to write a comprehensive review regarding all components. However, the review will include individual product reviews as well, so let this be the first of the lot. I’ll keep it simple for now.First and foremost: this drive is great. It’s stupid fast, looks nice, and so far, I’ve had zero problems.That said, I’m also a first time NVMe user, so take that with a grain of salt. Even an SSD drive would have been a substantial upgrade for me, so it’s hard to fully gauge the quality of this product.Which brings me to the only “cons”/concerns I have.1) Assembling the heatsink felt a bit sketchy. The amount of pressure I had to apply in order to align the screws correctly was much greater than I’d have expected. Even with said pressure, two of the screws barely caught thread and anchored properly. If you’ve got arthritis or low hand strength, a vise might be appropriate…2) So far, I’ve yet to see even a whiff of the read/write speed the drive boasts (while still seeing 2,000+ MB/sec on benchmarks, which seems in-line with most NVMe drives). While that doesn’t really upset me, seeing as it’s ridiculously fast anyway, my X570 + Ryzen 7 3700X *should* be able to take advantage of it — I just haven’t seen it yet. Perhaps that’s just a limitation of the benchmark software I’ve used so far (largely UserBenchmark for anything other than the CPU/GPU), but it’s worth noting *for now.* If I ever see a file transfer/benchmark that reveals the boasted 5,000MB/sec, I will most certainly update this.3) With the above point in mind, I highly recommend you go with the 1TB version at minimum. My benchmark has fallen substantially since I first ran it, and I suspect it’s because of the limited storage I have left for sequential writes. Furthermore, the 1TB+ versions seem to have better specs overall.Last thoughts for this initial review: my first benchmark on UserBenchmark put this drive at some 380% efficiency, ranking my PC as a UFO across the board. That is a tremendous score. While it has fallen to “below expected” versus other benches using this drive on my latest bench, it hasn’t seen any real-world performance issues. I again suspect it’s entirely because of the remaining space on the drive.Do I recommend the Sabrent Rocket 4? I definitely do. Just don’t make my mistake and think that because you were only using ~170GB of total data on your previous PC that you won’t suddenly end up with almost twice that with the increase in power/performance/ability to actually play modern games/use intensive apps, haha.
