You're right, it's worth the extra £4.
25% off applies to higher capacities too, thanks OP

Only the 2Tb, as far as I can see - bringing the price to £187...
How does this compare to the Corsair MP510? was looking at the 480gb but dont really need that much for a boot drive, just worked out better value than their 256gb
Voted hot
I heard that these had a weird block size so you couldn’t clone an existing drive? I’m after nvme to go into my desktop and was waiting for the Samsung 970 pro to come down

There's a utility on their downloads to apparently change the block size

Purchased this the other day and used the software acronis which can free with the drive. It took about an hour to clone from a Kingston 480 ssd with no issues..

Mp510 has a a very high endurance rating this on the other hand doesn't even list any endurance conclusion this is as fast if not faster than the corsair but if anything goes wrong you might get corsair to honor the warranty but doubt these guys will past the 6 month mark

This is what I've been thinking. A lack of transparency on the TBW rating worries me.

I may return my 1TB and just pay the extra. I'm building a machine to last, not just to save some money!

Frankly its what stopped me buying the 512 Gb version why wouldn't they list the endurance? even Ssds with terrible endurance from different brands most often than not list them, and endurance it's probably as important if not more important than the speeds, and I couldn't find any proper known tech publication reviews.

While the 45 pound price is amazing for the specs if anything goes wrong past the 6 month mark i doubt the seller would respond. Buying the adata sx8200 pro when it was on offer for 52 was probably a safer choice, personally I'll wait for a sub 50 pound on the 480 Gb mp510

No idea why they do not put it on their website, found the TBW:
amazon.com/ask…QF/

Since it using the same Phison E12 controller as the MP510, I would venture to think it is of similar performance. It mainly depends on where they source the NAND chips from and if their of good quality, that will decide if it lasts.

Thanks for the reply.

Still worries concerns me as the controller isn't the same as the NAND chips.
Can I put 2 of these on my msi b450 tomahawk max, already bought one with 1tb for storage, want to buy a second with 256GB just for the operating system.

If it's fulfilled by Amazon surely it doesn't matter if the seller doesn't respond and if Amazon don't help, there's a 5-year warranty with Sabrent isn't there?

I always thought it's the individual sellers on the market place to honor the warraty not amazon themselves they just fulfill the order all after sales is the responsibility of the sellers.

In the case of any issues sabrent will most likely say go to who ever you bought it from, I assume the seller is not actually sabrent themselves judging by their name, didn't look it up for judging by the sparse details on their site they don't have a UK or European rma center, and where does it actually say that it has 5 years warranty?

I don't get me wrong if it works out of the box I think it will be very unlikely that it will go bad in under 5 years unless you use it as a scratch disk but still there are some questions

It's on the Sabrent website that if you register it within 90 days of purchase they'll extend the warranty to 5 years, so that warranty would be with them, not the seller or Amazon. See the bottom of this page sabrent.com/pro…ve/

That's for an American site. They will have 5 years warranty but for the them, not us. If it's anything like Mercedes SBC braking pumps fiasco, warranty in America is 25years where as in the UK it was only 10 years.

I have this exact drive and it cloned perfectly well with Macrium Reflect. Really fast read speed. As usual, write speed gets a bit slower as your drive fills up, so get the capacity that suits your needs for best performance.
A bit late, but to add something regarding Sabrent - they do NOT offer VAT exclusive price for businesses. This means they are a tax dodging company. Usually it's done by Chinese companies, setting up some weird schemes, where they sell in UK, but accounting is done outside.
So good luck honouring anything from that company once the review window at Amazon has expired. They of course will do anything to remove a bad review, but once this is done you can safely forget about them. Had had a similar review case on Amazon, and yes, it was from another company, but still the VAT stuff speaks enough for me.

Bought the 240GB Corsair MP510 on Amazon just a few days ago, still havent opened it yet....not sure if it's worth the hassle to send it back and get this instead.
Ordered one today!

It will run at lower speed (definitely) and disable some SATA ports (I think) so not worth it.

Actually I swear the Tomahawk Max doesn’t have two M.2 ports (I have the board myself). Just stick with a normal SATA drive
