Looks like they're still around..



( From http://www.buy.com/retail/product.as...21&dcaid=17902 )

I think that they've gone over to monochromatic because most consumers disagree with your stylistic choice.. But hey, to each their own..

Edit: Ooo, ground down..

You can have the ones in my kitchen if you replace them with the monochrome ones. You really prefer the red/black over the new ones?

I think so too.. I'd use the mono ones in bath and kitchen, but I think in my workshop and utility room I'd prefer the red/black.

All I can say is YUK!. Worst color scheme ever. Although the little led can be pretty annoying as well.

There used to be a goof web-site that sold wireless receptacles, it was pretty funny, had some interesting warning labels on it...
