We recently reviewed the 1TB version of Sabrent’s Rocket 4 Plus Gen 4 PCIe SSD, and now it is the turn of the 2TB model to go under the spotlight. Using a combination of Phison’s latest Gen 4 8-channel controller, the PS5018-E18, alongside 96-layer 3D TLC NAND, is this SSD worth the £400 asking price?
The 2TB model of the Rocket 4 Plus sits in the middle of a three drive range; 1TB, 2TB and the 4TB flagship drive. The drive uses a combination of Phison’s latest Gen 4 8-channel controller, the PS5018-E18, and 96-layer 3D TLC NAND.
Sabrent quote Sequential read/write speeds for the 2TB drive as up to 7,100MB/s for reads and up to 6,600MB/s for writes while 4K performance is rated at up to 650,000 IOPS for reads and up to 700,000 IOPS for writes.
Sabrent rate the endurance of the 2TB drive at 1400TBW and back the drive with a 1-year warranty although if you register the drive with them you get a full 5-year warranty.
