White / Beige Blu-ray Drive Exists?

Hey Guys,

I was putting some new life into an old (beige) computer I built a few years ago, and was curious if anyone has seen any internal blu-ray players that were white?

Looking at newegg, all I see currently are black ones:
Newegg.com - Blu-ray Drives, Blu-ray Readers

I want to match the color of my case (which is white / beige), so if anyone can point me to the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks,

--Asif

It certainly does not look like it. Any beige blu ray drives I could find are out of stock or discontinued.
You are up against outgoing cases (no one buys beige cases anymore) and new tech (not made when cases were all beige). It's supply and demand.

Maybe you might find replacement bezels?

well, it's more like going against what the builders decided. They stopped making them beige for marketing reasons (i.e. saying that newer products are cooler), not the other way around. I personally hate black cases.

Anyway, the best bet would be an external blu-ray burner, some are whitish but must be kept external and some aren't black seem like hackable (they are normal burners, just placed in a case that allows them to work over USB, if you find a non-destructive way to take them out of such case, then you can mount them in the tower).

But i think USB 2 isn't enough for them and if your rig doesn't have USB 3 or e-sata you may need a card for that (the latter being better).
