"For those who require a specific sector size to clone their existing SSDs: A newly released Sabrent utility enables users to re-format the Rocket drive and choose the sector size of their liking, either 512-bytes or 4K bytes".

This corrects the cloning issue.

I have a Sabrent Rocket 1TB I bought a couple of weeks ago. It runs similarly hot. The E12 processor is a beast but it has high thermals and uses more watts than other controller designs--and consequently more battery life on a laptop.

I bought it for a desktop but tried it in a laptop just to see what it would do--fast, but the fan ran much more often, temps were very high during benchmarking, etc. IMO, the E12-based SSDs are much better suited for desktops.





The $15 Sintech adapter allows a 2013-5 rMBPs and some MBAs to use a m.2 NVMe drive. There's an excellent wiki and 186 page thread on MacRumors (sticky at the top of the MBP forum) on how to do the upgrade, issues to watch out for, reviews of drives, etc. Read that, or at least the wiki, first.

Please note that the 13" 2015 rMBP has a PCIe 2.0 bus (~2000MB/s max) and this will not ever reach the highest rated transfer speeds of this drive (3400/3000MB/s r/w). The 15" 2015 has a PCIe 3.0 bus and it can utilize the full speeds. (Of course, the much more real-world increased mixed I/O speeds will likely still benefit a 13" machine).

Some other caveats you should consider: Battery life will be somewhat worse with any NVMe SSD as Apple's proprietary drives were very power efficient. It is double sided and fits less well with the long adapter and has worse airflow than single sided SSDs. Among NVMe drives the E12s are fast but have high thermals and draws about 2 watts more peak power than other SSDs. The fan may run more frequently, the system may be noisier, and battery life might be shorted during periods of heavy disk I/O.

I own a 2013 rMBP and successfully used the short Sintech adapter with a low power 1TB Crucial P1. It was a good upgrade for me, but the 2013s are PCIe 2.0 bus limited and have hibernate problems that the 2015 models don't, so a lower power/lower speed NVMe was particularly desirable to me.

All that said, some people on MacRumors report being very happy with their E12s (Inland Premiums or Sabrent Rockets). Read up and make your decision.

Yeah it was the 512 emulation for 4k sector size issue, that all drives with Phison E12 controller have.
Sabrent has released a utility that fixes this so you can clone your old drive.

Just grabbed a 1TB before I saw this because I had it in my cart from the last deal, and realized the price had dropped by $30.

Question for anyone that may know: has anyone tried to install one of these on a mid-2015 MacBook Pro? I originally intended to buy this for my PC, but wondering if I should pick up another if it would work for an upgrade.

My guess is because no cloning software works with it.

I got the 256Gb for $30 off Amazon last week. After some trial and error I installed Windows 10 on it. It's in my m.2 slot on my Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 7. Read and write speeds are 800/800. Of course not as fast as it can/should be but the board is limited to 10gbs pci_express so I'm assuming these are pretty good real-world speeds. I was tempted to get an pciexpress adapter and steal the x16 lane from my 970 and have it run on the x8 as I've read there will be no performance drop, but I think I will hold off and just upgrade my whole setup in a year or so.

Looks like $30 for a 256GB NVME will be a solid bottom price for a while

Wow, I thought $270 for 2tb was a good deal. In for a second one for my Hades Canyon NUC. Wonder if I should set them up in Raid 0, thoughts?
