  • Price in title please

  • Cheapest gen 4 ? Work on ps5?

    • +5

      PS5 requirement is greater than 5500MB/S write. You'll need the PLUS variant of this I think

    • Sabrent Rocket 4 PLUS does. This base version is not confirmed yet. It doesn't meet requirements on paper but the 980 Pro has the same controller and seems to work on beta…

  • +5

    Just to add, I believe this will not suit PS5 requirements.

  • +1

    Slower drives works*

    Love the title: "Internal SSD".

    Included for those searching for an internal NVMe who might confuse it for an external NVMe.

    • You do realise that portable NVMe drives exist right?

      • I do know that portable NVMe exist, but you would have to be an ID10T to confuse them with an internal NVMe.

        Besides, who searches for an internal NVMe?

        If I want an internal NVMe, I will just search for a NVMe.

        Granted, I would search for a portable NVMe or more likely just an enclosure, by typing in "portable NVMe" or "NVMe enclosure".

  • This any good?

    • great drives superfast and good tbw too

      • But there's no decent heatsink??

        • +2

          Most motherboards you would be using this on include heatsinks

        • i have 2 motherboards i use these in and both come with heatsinks. I specifically went for ones without heatsinks for that purpose. I have a corsair force mp600 too which i wish didnt have a heatsink

          • +1

            @Xpaw: I needed one without a heatsink, hence looking at this. Cheers for the recommendation on it

    • Drive is fine unless your'e regularly transferring large data - would not suit videographer or photographer as the SLC cache is only around 25GB - at that point the drive crawls at 500MB/s

      I returned mine and got a Samsung 970 plus which has 108GB cache and when that empties still writes at 1.7GB/s

      • I dabble in both of those things. Whoops. Fortunately I have a pcie gen 4 and 3 slot on my mobo. Recommend the 970 plus for the gen 3?

        • 970 plus has a fat cache, but the 970 pro is MLC and can keep up as well.

  • How's this compared to the Firecuda 520 at similar price?

    • The Sabrent Rocket is marginally faster, but the Seagate Firecuda 520 will last longer. Higher endurance, on top of Seagate having some of the best build quality in the industry, makes the Firecuda the obvious buy if they're the same price.

      Sabrent warrenty is the worst I've ever dealt with. They require you to pay, at your expense, shipping to the USA for diagnosis, with a big disclaimer that they will charge you even more for return shipping if they don't deem it warranty worthy. Never again.

      But honestly, neither is a great buy at this price. The SN850 for only $20 more is a huge leap in performance, quality and technology. Better for every single workload, from gaming to rendering.

      The only reason to buy a Firecuda 520 over an SN850 at this price is for the extra endurance, perhaps for huge video renders or chia plotting.

      • the TBW on both the rocket and firecuda are the same. The SN850 has a TBW of 600, 1/3 of the firecuda and sabrent rocket. Dont make up stats without researching it.

        • I never mentioned TBW, and I specifically said that the SN850 is worse for endurance workloads, so I'm not actually sure what you're trying to correct here?

          The Sabrent has a higher failure rate than the Firecuda with minimal benefits, so there's no reason to risk getting a faulty Sabrent unless there's a decent discount on it. And the SN850 runs very hot and will throttle itself to minimize damage, so it's unreliable for endurance loads.

          • @Jolakot: I was referring to your remark about the endurance on the sabrent being less than the firecuda which is incorrect. I then pointed out that the WD has low endurance. I would rather a drive with a longer life span and slightly slower speeds than faster speeds and only 600tbw

            • @Xpaw: I hope you realize that TBW is a warranty clause not a technical term. The drive won't fail after 600TBW, that's the point where WD drops warranty for it.

              And regardless, you would have to write 330GB of data every single day for 5 years to hit a 600TBW. I have an incredibly data-heavy workload, and would only hit that about 3 days a week.

              I'm sure some people would need to write 5TB+ a day each day and would wear out the drive within a year, but I don't know who.

              • @Jolakot: It's what they rate their drive to, like buying a car which has 7 year warranty and 100000 kilometres as opposed to 5 years 50000ks. Not everyone will reach that but it is peace of mind for the purchaser.

    • I am talking about this one. Why such a big differences in the RRP?
