So found this product online

Didn’t think there was any M.2 4TB SSD out there, what do you think?

It's $650 at newegg. Not a bad price for a 4TB SSD if you need one. I expected it to be QLC though.

wow it isn't a bad price when converted in to UK GBP £501.22 at 19/11/2019 market rates.

Is this the start that M.2 SSD for consumers, now start to get larger

That is $858 Canadian but a welcome sight. I did not think we would see this density for at least another year. Now Black Friday should me even more interesting as things like this and PCI-E 4.0 drives should hopefully mean a bonanza on storage.

If it's for some productivity/work usage, I don't see anything wrong with it, But, if it's for game storage, I don't think it's worthwhile since game level loadtimes between SATA SSD and NVMe M.2 is negligible at worst. That's why I'd opted for a 4TB and a 2TB SSD for game storage, cheaper than NVMe M.2....

A 4TB SSD is not really any cheaper and I have seen some more expensive than this drive too.

It seems like it is TLC too. It's $650 at newegg. Not a bad price for a 4TB SSD if you need one. I expected it to be QLC though.
The newegg page clearly states it is TLC, so no more guessing :)

Price sux because you can get 2x of the same 2TB units for $520, so the 4TB model should run about $475 at most....

If this were a Gen4 drive, I could maybe see that price being justified (only at launch though) but certainly not for a Gen3 unit...

Flash storage is the only storage that increases in price as density rises. You could build a faster array using QLC 1 TB NVME and an expansion card. The point though is that it only requires 1 slot. If money is no object using that same card you could have a 16TB NVME scratch drive......a 16TB NVME drive on a desktop that can cost about the same as 2 2080TIs is indeed eye watering but it is a great example of how much raw power is available to the consumer in today's PC market.

I'm not guessing, I was just surprised it wasn't QLC for that density and price.

I have a 256Gb one. Great drive for the price.
Time will tell if it'll last, but I think it comes with 5 years.

Totally agree I didn’t think we would see anything like this as well, what next 8TB SATA SSD’s

They are the only provider who is doing a M.2 4TB SSD not even Samsung who are doing it

Within 6 months, I think price might come down a little bit and maybe more companies will do a 4tb drive.

Well, I have a Samsung 850 EVO 4TB SATA SSD in my rig (yes, it cost me more when I'd gotten it) but it's now selling at 579USD, 70USD less than that Sabrent.

Nothing against using NVMe M.2 SSD's if one favors it, I have a Sabrent 256GB Rocket NVMe M.2 SSD for boot drive.......but IF SATA SSD of same capacity can be bought at lower price (game storage) then I'd pick SATA SSD's. I'm waiting for such high capacity NVMe M.2 SSD's to become cheaper, would prolly snag a 4TB unit as I still have a couple of extra NVMe M.2 slots on my mobo.

Hi the drive in Canada is this one and it is


It is almost $200 more than the Sabrent after doing the conversion. I am sure though that this drive will be over $1000 here in Canada.

I hear ya there, 4TB M.2 SSD is nice but with the few pesos I have available there is not much hope. So I make do with my Intel 660p 512GB which cost a lot less.
