Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 8TB SSD Review


The Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 8TB is the latest drive in Sabrent’s broad portfolio of NVMe Gen4 PCIe M.2 SSDs. This family of drives is based on the Phison PS5018-E18 controller, TLC NAND and features 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB models as well.

It should be noted that the 8TB capacity does not use Micron B47R NAND as the rest of the line does. Due to size constraints for the PCB, Sabrent switched to Kioxia BiCS5 NAND.

While there is not a lot of new ground with this new capacity point, it is much larger than what other current TLC SSD lines offer, which most often only feature a maximum of 2TB and top out at 4TB. The 8TB Rocket 4 Plus is also faster than Sabrent’s QLC equivalent and only costs $100 more.
