I bought two Gotek floppy drive emulators and on the eBay listing it said they were white but when I received them they are a light grey, are all Gotek drives light grey if not I would really appreciate a sellers name that sells white ones on eBay

yeh grey and black seem to be the only 2 choices, at least stock.
I'e gotten used to the "off white" though, kind of goes with the slightly yellowed CD-ROM 😜

"Are all white Gotek floppy drives actually light grey? “
Why do you ask? Are you anti-grey, or what? What's wrong with you? 😠

Just kidding! 😁
But in near future, real conversations could happen like this, I'm afraid.. 🙄
So we must watch out of not being the victims of over-paranoid algorithms scanning the forums also.

Common words found in computing, like blacklist&whitelist, master&slave etc. are already in discussion.

Lol, thats a bit off topic Jo22 but thats ok I never thought about it much but you bring up a good point why would any sane person want to be reminded of slavery in our day from just computer jargon, are there no actual white Gotek drives I would really like to get one because the light grey one I have is an eyesore in my white 486 case.
