Final Thoughts

We really love what ADATA has done for RGB SSDs. The XPG Spectrix S40G is the first RGB SSD we've seen that we would consider using in our own PC's. Everything about what the drive brings to the table visually is absolutely stunning. No wired connections, no hoops to jump through, fully customizable, excellent software, all wrapped up in a nifty M.2 x 2280 package.

Looking back at the performance the drive delivers in our user-state scenarios, we can see that the S40G is not a performance powerhouse. We are fine with that, because the performance it does deliver is more than enough to satisfy a majority of users. What the XPG Spectrix S40G lacks in performance, is in our opinion more than offset by what it does visually. We believe the Spectrix S40G is an excellent upgrade for your outdated SATA SSD and do not hesitate to recommend it to our readers as such.

ADATA's Spectrix S40G 1TB NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 SSD is TweakTown approved.
