The 888D is silver, but costs around 50 bucks more i think, and therefore not a best buy.

Yeah I learned about the 888D recently. It's still available in Blue and Yellow though, and both colors are available on the market. The 50$ difference isn't for the color, but because the analog temperature control was upgraded to a digital one. Though in reality, the difference in price is about 10$, which still makes it a good deal.
