I would love one of those in my rig, but for time being, out of my price range for a short while unfortunately.

I comepletely agree about the PCB being black, with todays market, most boards being black or blue, they should really of make it black.

I think this is an awesome product, but I aree that it looks really horrible. Not only that green PCB, but also that big, white sticker when you put it in the M.2 slot on your motherboard.

Its a shame they don't make them like ram. A hyper X beast one in white would moisten me greatly .

I would really love to have one for my Maximus VII Hero build. Yet having it front and center right under the CPU block; that flash of green will drive me crazy. If I sleeved it, would it overheat? I also think even a small sheet metal shroud painted black or with carbon fiber vinyl would look better than the naked PCB as it is. I am a bit worried about any possible heat buildup though. Does anyone think its an issue if the drive is covered or sleeved?

If I am to spend so many euros on a PC that's all about performance I wouln't mind one of those things, no matter how ugly it looks. It's made to deliver performance, not some kind of fabulous looks.
The performance of this is totaly absurd and that's all that matters. Now if plextor was to make a "gamer/enthusiast" version of this and it came on a black pcb it would become overpriced ^^

Most people on this forum think that the looks of a PC is very important. Personally a green PCB among high end components is unacceptable. It really ruins the whole aesthetic in my opinion.
