Seems the black version is now becoming more available.
I could not find a 5163D in any of the 11 stores i normally try. :sad:
Most UK stockists have the 5160D so perhaps they are trying to get rid of there stock, or, as all the 4163`s are bare drives, non of the retail stuff has got here yet. Normally, USB drives are sold only in retail packaging.
Also, when you can buy an nice looking metal USB2 enclosure, with bult in PSU for Â£ 23.50, those wanting external drives can then use the drive of their choice, and save money, and upgrade next time for less. :iagree:
The 5160D ranges from Â£ 90.00 to Â£ 120.00.
BTW, i have one of the external cases mentioned, and by using a mobile rack instead of a CD/DVD, i now have hot swappable hard drives :iagree:
