Question of design - white internal DVD-RW?

Recommended Posts

Guys, I wonder, if anyone can suggest me a good (at best RPC-1 patchable) DVD-RW drive. I like my old NEC drives (DV-4551A, DV-2510A) and I'm even satisfacted with the Sony Optiarc AD-7621S, but all these are baige/black.


Now what good drive (SATA these says, of course) is produced in white color? Could anyone help me out?


For THIS case it could be a reall beauty:


...and basically it is a question of design. I seen plenty of extrernal (slim, sadly, not re-usable as internal drive) white DVD-RW combodrives, but none internal.


Anyone can suggest white one...?

Looks like the closest is the Samsung SH-224DB white drive:




(Samsung SH-224DB "white" drive, I fear it will be more baige-like...)


I got also warning, that:

OS X hackintosh.. samsung dvd has firmware issue with sleep, drive stays active


...but hopefully that would be fixed, as Samsung is releasing plenty of firmware updated. Worser is, that there is no RPC-1 firmware (region free). Older Samsung drivers are covered: http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares_samsung.html

But not yet this one.
