We’re big fans of Sabrent SSDs for their blend of performance and affordable price, and Black Friday has once again delivered with a scorching deal on the company’s Rocket range of PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 drives.
Whatever type of PC you’re building or upgrading, there’s something here for you, beginning with the PCIe 3.0 Rocket starting at less than £38
Supporting the PCIe 3.0 standard, the Rocket is a seriously fast drive for Intel or AMD PCs and makes a fantastic boot drive at an insane price.
As we noted in our review, this cheap SSD is one that can go toe-to-toe with the best in the business. Write speeds are substantially higher than you’ll find on any SATA ssd, while read speeds are up there with the likes of Samsung and WD. You won’t get a faster SSD for anything like this kind of money.
The good news doesn’t end there, either. If you’re using an AMD Ryzen 3000 or 5000 series CPU paired with an X570 or B550 motherboard you can take advantage of PCIe 4.0 SSDs and get performance unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
And the Sabrent Rocket PCIe 4.0 is also reduced, and it is well worth your money.
A perfect drive to base your new Ryzen PC around, with the PCIe 4.0 standard offering performance never seen before in consumer-grade PCs.
The sweet spot in the lineup is the 1TB model which boasts read speeds around 5,000MB/s and write speeds in excess of 4,000MB/s while maintaining a strong price and definite value compared to comparably priced PCIe 3.0 drives.
For a little extra you can get one with a heatsink included, which isn’t entirely necessary but that also depends on your PC setup. These SSDs do get much warmer than others, but I’ve been using a 1TB Rocket 4.0 for about a year now without and had no dramas.
This is certainly about the best bang for buck SSD deal you’ll find in the UK this Black Friday, so don’t miss out and get in while you can.
