Snag a 1TB Sabrent Rocket 5, fastest SSD, for just $179 at Amazon

It might not be Memorial Day just yet but you can already find great deals on leading, name-brand hardware like this offer from Amazon on the Sabrent 1TB Rocket 5 SSD. This high-performance SSD usually goes for around $189 but right now you can purchase it for just $179. It’s worth noting that Amazon has not specified an expiration date for the discount so we’re not sure for how long it will be made available at this rate.

We had the opportunity to review the Sabrent Rocket 5 just last month and were overall pleased with the drive, rating it at 4.5 out of 5 stars. As far as PCIe 5.0 compatible SSDs go, this one stands out with powerful performance. That said, it’s not very energy efficient and can be a little heavy when it comes to power consumption.

This discount is for the 1TB edition but the Sabrent Rocket 5 SSD also comes in 2TB and 4TB capacities. All of the drives in this line have an M.2 2280 form factor and use PCIe 5.0 x4 interfaces. The Rocket 5 has a Phison E26 controller and a 232-layer micron TLC memory.

The Sabrent Rocket 5 1TB SSD is supported by a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty from Sabrent that voids should the drive reach 600TBW. It’s also backed up by Amazon’s 30-day return policy. Visit the Sabrent Rocket 5 1TB SSD product page at Amazon for more details and purchase options.
