I'm considering this drive, but the pictures on the web seem to show an ivory top and a dark grey bottom. I have a beige case and I'm worried the grey strip is going to look stupid.
I wish it was all ivory.
my drive is all ivory I got it as bulk from www.newegg.com
The bulk/OEM versions of the drive don't have the additional grey/glossy black stripe.
I bought a retail version in Germany without gray stripe.Looks nicer IMHO
There are at least three types of retail GSA-4163B. Mine's in silver.
The silver on my retail units bottom looks and feels cheap, tacky and ready to fall off.
Not worth the extra unless your case is also cheap and tacky.
The drive goes in new IBM computers in black and looks a bit like NEC drive, nice and plain, much better than standard I think
