I had a sabrent rocket plus, never lived up to claimed speeds. Their tech support is terrible as well. Returned and got a samsung drive, no regrets.

You get what you pay for

I just built a new computer and almost went with this drive, but changed my mind due to the short warranty period of 1 year. I went with a Corsair force with a 5-year warranty. The WD black 4.0 also has a 5-year warranty.

It's actually a 5 year warranty, once you register the drive online.

Once you register the product on our website https://www.sabrent.com/product-registration/ has a 5-year Extended warranty period.

This is an ok deal if you want to get more than 3.5 GB/s sequential read/write (limitation of PCI-E 3.0) provided you have an AMD x570 or upcoming Intel Rocket Lake.

Just an FYI, 99% home usage (gaming, amateur video/photo editing/streaming etc..) primarily rely on random IO read/write at low queue depth (responsiveness of games/programs loading time) which this drive and most NMVE drives severely lack.

Currently the only drive that has high random IO read/write at low queue depth is the Intel Optane SSD which costs a lot of $$$.

Look at professional reviews of Intel Optane SSD and read about random IO vs sequential read/write if you want to be knowledgeable about SSD so you can make an informed purchase decision.

In short, even the newest PCI E 4.0 drive such as Samsung 980 Pro with the 7000 Mbps sequential read/write doesn't really give you much improvement in terms of responsiveness in every day usage because it's the random IO performance that matters in every day usage, not sequential performance.

Great price, great drive. Wish I didn't already buy this exact setup for much more... lol. Just fell outside my return window. Oh well lucky everyone else Smilie

I couldn't get that sabrent software they include to work... kept saying there was no compatible drive connected. which was a shame but nbd since I sort of wanted to do a clean install.

That changes things. If I had known that, I probably would have saved some money and bought this unit. On B&H, it showed one year as the warranty period.

Quote from MumsBasemeant :
Max read: 5.0GB/s
MAX write: 4.4 GB/s

Sony recommends pcie drives that can reach 5.5GB/s. Though this drive might work in a PS5, it is not optimal down the road. If you're looking primarily for ps5 expansion and don't need it right now, I'd wait at least a year for much faster drives to pop up.
They won't let anyone use any drives right now anyways so really impossible to know. But with 500mb speed difference there will literally be no difference or at least that you can notice.

Quote from Mindcontrol :
Wow. I. Just a few days outside of the return window. Oh well. I have this. It's an excellent fast drive. Best for OS and apps. Games will load faster but not insanely faster than an SSD. if you want a 1tb for games only id go with the crucial mx500. Those can be found around $85-90 bucks.
Luckily I had just received mine a few days ago, so bought again and will return the 1st.

About the mx500... I also bought a SAMSUNG 870 EVO 1TB for 129$ to use as my "standard" drive for whatever. Amazon shows the mx500 1tb for 114$. If it was 85-90, I might return the 870 but it's nearly the same price. Hmm. Maybe I'll hunt around and see if i can find the mx500 for cheaper...

Speeds should be the same for both right? Longevity?

It's been mentioned above, but you cannot add any internal PS5 storage yet.
You can add external storage, but only for storing PS4 games.

So, best strategy right now is to buy a low-cost SSD plus USB adapter/enclosure and put all your PS4 games on that.
Save the internal storage for PS5 games only.
It's easy to shift games between internal and external if you think you'll get some performance boost by leaving PS4 games internal until you actually need the space for PS5 games.
