Well mine is grey! I don't know if it is the same model but mine is a combined
firewire and usb model. It uses a prolific pl3507 chipset, which is very buggy
in some earlier firmwares when using firewire. Massive corruption under windows
and lock ups under linux.
And no automatic spin downs for me either.
