Props to Adata for a M.2 drive coming out with a Black PCB.

I think these companies are starting to understand that people don't want Blue/Green PCB's.

Damn, I have a lot of love for ADATA. I have 4 of their SSDs, great bang for the buck! I hope they continue that trend with these things. I'd love to see them undercut the big boys by a decent margin.

I've never understood why blue or green PCB's are standard when it costs maybe a few pennies more to simply change the colour to black.

I bought one for my brothers first PC about 3 years ago and to this day it's rarely ever been not in use as an OS drive and is rock solid. Boots up faster than my crucial drive.

Because a couple pennies to change one drive multiplied by the millions that they sell, can turn into millions of dollars they spent on a color when the color has 0% difference to performance/reliability.

Logically then they could simply add the few pennies per drive onto the final cost of the product.

This is assuming it even is pennies. There's more to it then just simply pennies. You forget that most of there sales would come from other sources outside the DIY market. No point in increasing there prices when it could potentially lose them a client where things are heavily subsidized and everyone goes for the absolute cheapest product available.
