8 TB O ‘QLC and PCIe 3
This Sabrent Rocket Q NVMe SSD doesn’t use the latest interface or the fastest NAND, but at 8TB you won’t find a mainstream M.2 SSD for sale. If your main need is wide tracks of space with the speed coming up close, it’s worth taking a look at this drive. The drive size even helps mitigate QLC NAND’s shorter lifespan, it’s rated at 1800 TBW and comes with a five-year warranty.
Nikktech tests shows that you don’t even sacrifice much in terms of speed, this PCIe 3.0 drive can achieve 3300MB / s sequential read and 2900MB / s sequential write, which puts it ahead of the pack for the old interface. They also give a quick overview of Rocket’s control panel software, a handy app for any Rocket owner, regardless of the generation of the player.
The only downside is the sticker shock, 8TB drives don’t come cheap so expect to spend about $ 1300 to pick up this one.
