They're basically the same. Get the less expensive one that has branding that resonates with you. Sabrent has a 5 year warranty vs 3 for Silicon Power, fwiw.

I have the Sabrent drive and my computer responds a lot better since I installed it. 5 year warranty is also a plus.

They use the same controller and NAND from the same brand (can't confirm it is exactly the same). Neither company actually manufacturers their hardware, they pretty much buy it and slap a sticker on it and from my understand, neither deviated from the reference design provided by Phison (the company that makes the controller) anyways.

Good point, then it's the best value, unless the consumer supports the tax regime.

Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD - CT1000P1SSD8
https://www.amazon.ca/Crucial-1TB-NAND- ... /B07J2Q4SW
$132.99 + tax = $150.28

but looks like speed is slower (reads/writes up to 2,000/1,700 MB/s)
compared to Sabrent (reads/writes up to 3,400/3000 MB/s)

One of the Amazon reviews mentions "For cloning from old hardware, Sabrent offers a program that forces the drive to emulate 512k sectors. It will wipe the drive when you use it. Sadly 512k emulation does slow the drive slightly, so there's an unavoidable cost to compatibility mode. Use a software back up tool that can restore to dissimilar hardware, or just use 10s file history tool, back up to an external drive, install 10 onto new drive, restore your files."

Could someone explain this in layperson term?

The Sabrent is a much better drive. Unless you need a single sided NVMe (some laptops are too small to fit a double sided one), the Crucial isn't a great deal at that price.

Just ignore that. This Sabrent is not a Native 4Kn drive anyways. So it will emulate 512K by itself
