I think I will have to withdraw the black option.

It simply isn't viable for a "Rolls Royce turnover" company (3,000 - 4,000 products a year), but with "Dacia pricing" to carry two sets of casework for every product.

Best to leave colour choices to the big fanboy-approved manufacturers.
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

That seems sensible to me, it means more of the money goes on what can be heard rather than visual options. Perhaps it is familiarity but I really like the silver finish of the boxes and the way the GSP/HFC graphics have evolved. I also find it is easier to read the black text on silver, than white on black. Again maybe that's just me!

Silver all the way. Money is better spent on research.

I realise that this is all a matter of perception and cosmetics but it always strikes me that the silver boxes look more purposeful than black. My niece (a young person who understands these things) tells me that the natural metal finish has an industrial look that adds to its functionality.
