This is about the slowest of the bunch, if you can spring for it the 2tb Sabrent Rocket for $260 is a good price and destroys this drive.

Is it justified to spend $87 more for the Sabrent? I mean with $87, I can get a pair of 8GB RGB RAM goodies, or use it towards my RTX 2080.

If you can justify not spending 87$ for extra fractions of seconds by all means have fun hating yourself! When you can't sleep at night just remember it's because of you that your boot time are 10 sec and not 9.87!

It really depends on what you want out of it. If you're the sort of person who has to have a 2080 as opposed to a 2070, then you'll probably also want a faster SSD. Where you'll feel the difference the most is if/when you use a significant part of the 2TB capacity, at which point the Intel will become one of the slowest SSDs while the Sabrent will still be comfortably above average. Note the difference between the Sabrent's controller and Intel's [anandtech.com] as the drives fill up. (Use the dropdown menu in that article to compare the two.)

Edit: The Addlink S70 uses the same controller as the Sabrent as well. The most noticeable difference is under the "Sustained Sequential Write Performance" graph: https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews...ndex2.html

I'd take the Intel for better brand, less money and 5 year warranty.

Most users won't notice the speed difference.

Sabrent warranty looks like it's only 1 year.

Sabrent's is 3 years (edit: only 1), or five if you register the drive with them.

The listing on B&H's website says 1 year... maybe they are wrong but that's what it says... and I can't find the product on Sabrent's website. OK.. I just found it via search... but they don't mention the warranty... strange!

Warranty is 5 years after registration.

Sorry, good catch. It's 1-year standard (not 3), five with registration. They replied to a customer's question at https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Ro...B07LGF54XR to confirm this.

To be clear, this is a fantastic deal for 2TB of NVMe storage, but it's deliberately designed to be inexpensive at the cost of performance. It's somewhat of an anomaly among NVMe drives, since normally, NVMe drives provide performance far beyond that of 2.5" SSDs. In this case, the Intel drive performs very much like a 2.5" once its cache is filled. This may be totally adequate for many people, but for those who are buying an NVMe drive for speed, this will fall short of your expectations.

That all being said, in my opinion, the crowning achievement of this drive is an affordable 2TB drive in M.2 format. I have two M.2 slots on my mobo, and my primary slot is already filled with an ultrafast drive. A secondary drive with this much space that fits into a tiny slot in my mobo, taking up essentially zero space, and requiring no additional cables, is a amazing value proposition to me!

I use this strictly for my Steam library, and for recording gameplay. Works phenomenal for the job.
