    Correct... I have one as my boot drive in a self-built Ryzen / x570 system - blisteringly fast startup time in Windows 10, great for video rendering in DaVinci Resolve and as a bonus, this baby allows “fast travel” jumps around the Forza Horizon 4 map to complete in ~3 seconds - a major step up from what I was used to on my old rig.

    The slightly slower PCI3 Sabrent drives are also rather good and a fraction of the price of this beauty.

    Note to self... remember to register for the extended warranty on both drives, there’s no excuse now the new PC excitement has eased (slightly).

    The problem is the Adata SX8200 PRO is the same price as the PCI-E 3.0 NVME Sabrent Rocket TLC drive. Apparently the newer version of the PCI-E 3.0 Sabrent Rocket has reduced the amount of onboard DRAM too:

    Re: Sabrent Rocket 4.0 NVMe PCIe SSD (1TB)

    I am running 2 PCI-E 3 nvme drives on an x570 board due to the price to performance, got the silion power P34A80 (think mp510 performance).

    The cost difference isn't as bad now but PCI-E 4 drives still carry much more of a premium than the performance they supply.

    Of course this will correct with time.

    I carries a 5 year warranty - If you can be bothered to register it.

    The same deal I got with my Samsung washing machine. So it's a fairly common practice.

    And if you RMA it you're going to give them your email anyways...



    On another note, I've been using the 1 TB model as my boot drive on my X570 build from November. Zero problems and very happy with it. I would've liked to see a Samsung 970 EVO Plus in the mix, but I'll suffice comparing it using other benchmarks.

    People were talking about the PCI-E 3.0 version of the Sabrent Rocket. The problem it's not really competitive due to spec changes and a price increase. The PCI-E 4.0 version costs more,but looks a relatively better version IMHO.

    From what I gather Sabrent is implementing reference designs,for the specific controllers they use.

    Didn't you look at the link?? Reducing the DRAM cache reduces performance consistency,and Sabrent quietly did it with the PCI-E 3.0 version,whilst all the reviews had models,with more DRAM onboard.

    This is the same level of crap Kingston also tried. It does not inspire me that they won't try it again.

    Here is a comparison of the Adata SX8200 PRO and the new PCI-E 3.0 version of the Sabrent Rocket:
    https://www.techpowerup.com/review/s...vme-ssd/4.html





    That is what the spec change has done,and apparently the thermal sensor was off by 15C in their new sample.

    So going by that I would consider the SX8200 PRO a better SSD than the PCI-E 3.0 Sabrent Rocket,as there is no indication the specs have changed,and RMA is in Europe(IIRC its Holland but don't quote me on that). The SN750 from WD is available for a similar price on special offer. That has UK based RMA.

    Until Tarinder can confirm,sending your RMA to the US would be more of a PITA than to the UK or Europe. The SSDs in all my systems at home are either WD or Crucial,because at least the RMA is a known quantity.
    Also another problem,is that the Sabrent SSDs have gone up in price - the cheaper prices are from US based third party sellers.

    The actual stock held by Amazon costs much more.




    The QLC one is now £130,and the TLC one is now £150.

    The SX8200 PRO is between £120~£130.

    The WD SN750 is available for £130:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-SN750.../dp/B07M64QXMN

    Looking at the market now,I wouldn't get the PCI-E 3.0 Sabrent Rocket. The PCI-E 4.0 version looks OK so far,but I would check Reddit to see if there are any spec changes!

    Why Hexus do you not add in the Samsung 970 Plus / Evo / Pro 1Tb in on these tests??

    @CAT-THE-FIFTH

    I though you were comparing the ADATA to the PCI-E 4.0 version in the review, which confused me... Thanks for clarifying, and for the additional data.

    On a related note, I like ADATA in general and have been using their sd cards for years.

    It wouldn't stand up at all with trading standards. A manufacturer guarantee of reasonable durability and being free from defects is part of UK consumer law and is absolutely not contingent on handing over personal details. The problem is that they'll make your life very hard. In terms of a court case, that they're saying it'll last 5 years if you hand over an email address means they have made the case for you.

    I can see them saying something like "we'll do no quibble for a year from purchase however, if you want no-quibble after that point the onus will be on you to provide proof of purchase unless you register your product with us" as being totally reasonable. Email addresses are marketing data and they'll probably ask for your phone number and home address as well. This stuff is gold for them. There's software you can throw all this known stuff about a person in and it'll search everything on the internet and link it all together for you in a nice little graph. It's designed for researching individuals (usually for investigative reasons or social engineering them) but to automate the process is trivial. This raw data of already connected details is very valuable for marketing firms and I resent having to hand it over so as to get a manufacturer to comply with their legal obligations without a fight.

    The most recent victim of my hatred of this kind of tripe was Blizzard. They refused to refund. They ended up having the money taken directly from them by Paypal as they were in clear violation of UK consumer law and thought their company policy had supremacy. Nope.

    Well, we received a response from Sabrent, and it's rather vague.

    The exact mechanism of RMA depends upon the country you're conducting in from. Sabrent suggests you email support@sabrent.com for details on how to RMA. We're investigating further.

    Thanks for the review, very interesting. I'd not heard of Sabrent until last year when they started showing up in Amazon deals, but their drives do seem to be decent quality. I think I'll stick to a Samsung 970 for my upcoming build, but I'll be keeping an eye on Sabrent in the future.

    Had mine for over a month now, amazing! Makes such a big difference over the older SATA SSD's... here's a video of my bootup (just uploaded, takes under 30s!):
