ADATA XPG Lancer DDR5-5200 2x 16 GB Review

A Closer Look »


The XPG Lancer DDR5-5200 packaging is not the ordinary run of the mill box at all. This one still has that distinct reddish orange hue ADATA uses for its XPG branding. However, this time around, it is shiny, making it slightly harder to photograph, but grabs your attention in person. This Lancer memory kit came in two boxes, with each containing a single DIMM.

I am not sure if everyone will get their kits in this fashion, but I always warn against purchasing multiple kits for a single computer due to compatibility issues that may come about because of it. That being said, having gotten these for review, we can assume it is just what was available and move on.

As far as the box goes, it provides the customer all the information to make an informed decision on the spot. In the bottom right of the front, a bit of information clearly indicates the type of memory, module densities, and configuration, along with the operational frequency the XMP profile provides. Double props to ADATA for its attention to detail and listing the PC5 rating for those who want to get technical. It is rare to see it listed on the box.

Flip it around and the back has more information, including a QR code in the middle for easily accessing the product page on the XPG website. I don't see this often even though it is actually helpful when looking for a QVL list, or if you have other questions relating to the memory kit.

Removing the memory from the box only requires cutting some tape—the memory sticks are secured and protected from minor damage with a clamshell inside the outer box.
