Ask the Experts Question: Would the Sabrent Rocket SSD provide a good storage upgrade?

Would the Sabrent Rocket SSD provide a good storage upgrade?

Steve is curious about the Sabrent Rocket SSD and if he should upgrade to it or not

Question by Steve from Australia | Answered by Tyler Bernath in Storage from Dec 2, 2019 @ 22:40 CST


I'm looking for a good cheap NVMe drive for my recent build and was curious if you think the Sabrent Rocket is good quality?

Any others you would recommend?

Hi Steve,

Sure! Like many other drives, the Sabrent Rocket is based on a Phison design, more specifically I believe it's an E12-powered drive. This means it uses the same hardware as drives like the MP510, SBX, Cardea II, etc.


As for drives that I would recommend, I typically run Samsung drives in my test system builds. A Samsung 970 EVO won't let you down, but there are also more budget-minded solutions, like the SBXe from MyDigitalSSD, that can match typical OS performance.

If the Sabrent is something you can get locally, I wouldn't shy away from buying it for a good price, but make sure the vendor in question has a solid "toolbox" as Phison drives are regularly updated.
