Nowadays, many laptops utilize solid state drives, with capacities often ranging from 250GB to 1TB. For many consumers, that is more than enough for all of their files, and if it isn’t, they can always purchase an external drive to easily expand it. USB SSDs in particular are very popular, as they are small and have no moving parts.
Today, ADATA launches an all-new external solid state drive, and it is quite special. Called “SE770G,” the USB-C SSD stands out from the crowd with RGB lighting. The drive functions as any other USB-C SSD does, but it also has customizable lighting. Is that feature necessary or important? No, not at all. However, it is certainly fun, and it makes the SE770G very pretty. In fact, it might just be the most attractive USB SSD I have ever seen.
“The SE770G isn’t the typical run-of-the-mill external SSD. With a spacious panel of RGB, it will light up workspaces at home and on the go with a glorious cube-patterned effect. With USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity, the SE770G delivers read/write speeds up to 1,000/800 MB/s, which is up to 12.5 times faster than traditional external hard drives. This means it can transfer a 10GB 4K video file in just 20 seconds,” says ADATA.
The company further says, “The SE770G also sports USB Type-C connectivity, which means hassle-free plugging-in due to its symmetrical connector design that goes in right the first time, every time, regardless of orientation. Beyond general productivity, gamers will also appreciate the SE770G. On top of its stylist RGB lighting, it can be hitched up with gaming consoles for expanded storage and faster game loading times.”

Quick Start Guide
Unfortunately, the SE770G USB-C RGB SSD does not seem to be available from any online retailers yet. However, it should be available here soon. Since ADATA has not yet shared pricing, we will have to wait to find out the cost. What we do know, however, is that it will be offered in two capacities — 512GB and 1TB.
