    Hello,

    The back of my Mac Pro is very visible under my desk, so the clutter of wires and cables is just as visible. I just bought a couple of bright red eSATA cables, and now I'm looking for equally red USB cables.

    So far the only red USB cables I found were the semi transparent ones with leds indicating connection. What I'm really looking for is really red USB cables to would fit well with these:

    Anyone know of a retailer that carries such cables?

    Thanks

    sorry to hijack

    I'm in a similar situation:
    I need a white mini usb cable. Out of the back of my ACD I have my Apple keyboard, my iPod cable, and an ugly black mini USB cable. I'd like one that could match the other two apple usb cables.

    Hello,

    That was so close: I need a A to mini-B. The other cable I need I'm really not expecting to find anything: it's a USB-A to Network, the cable between my Mac and its UPS...

    But good find Facade! Thx

    Hello,

    thx for the links Jester, but I forgot to specify that I'm looking for a red cable.

    P.S. I seem to be searching in vain for vanity items...

    I am honestly kind of surprised monoprice does not have them. Their crazy colors of display and ethernet cables really saved my life when running a bunch of different systems in close proximity. I guess they figure that USB cables are not used as interconnects between devices so they do not need as many colors?
