Unfortunately, because you want colored sleeving, your best bet is going to be either between the Kobra Sleeving from Koolertek.com or MDPC sleeving. The MDPC is the better of the two and the Kobra is slightly see through when it's expanded.

Unfortunately, the PET sleeving that Barry (FurryLetters) sells is actually really really see through. The Kobra sleeving is better than it but not as good as the MDPC. However, Barry does sell the black TechFlex Clean Cut Sleeving and that's the one you want for black sleeving as it will be a bit cheaper than the MDPC black.

It's also cheaper if you order directly from him.

As far as "looking different", you really shouldn't notice any difference in the look of the sleeving other than one color to the next.

Well, if I'm not mistaken, Nathan, owner Koolertek wanted to sell some of the MDPC in the US but (if I'm getting this correct...I may have the ignored part wrong but I'm pretty sure it's right...if not, let me know and i'll correct it) he was ignored the first time he asked and then was told no the second time from Nils.

I'm almost done with my project, just got a few more extensions and the sata (this one is gonna be fun ) to finish. Probably for my next build, I'll bite the bullet go w/ some mdpc-x color sleeve for a little pizazz, no doubt its really attractive. Thanks for the tip on ordering from Barry. If I need some more cleancut, ill contact Furry directly

Nils has stated that he does not wish to give the rights to anyone to re-sell his sleeve as it will change the way MDPC is seen and experienced. Nils is very passionate about his products and his service is part of the 'MDPC Experience' That's what makes MDPC-X so special and different from all other companies.

imo, a manufacturer like TechFlex has the capability of doing different colors of high weave sleeve. I don't understand why they continue to offer only low quality sleeve in color. I need to write them a letter, its not like mdpc-x has exclusive rights to color high weave sleeve in the world. Im sure in the industrial/commercial markets, there is someone producing high weave sleeve in different colors. (sigh)

Either that or they've all settled for low quality crap lol... My Vantec power supply came sleeved with triple braided blue sleeve though... It's not single wire sleeve but it's decent quality stuff. If they'd got the 'stretch' right it would do quite well.

I wouldn't mind some Techflex Clean Cut in White, Black, and possibly Blue personally although I really like purple but I don't really see it selling well.

@PapaSmurf ...

I have somewhat of a burning question ... Maybe you might have some info.

I was pokin' around mdpc-x & saw sleeving specifically for SATA data cables. I was immediately puzzled. Then I wandered to milllion$pc & looked @ a few creations ... one especially caught my eye - it had/has orange sleeving over a SATA data cable. I just finished starring @ it for 10 minutes. How the Hell was that done?! In my mind's eye I picture having a 'commercial' SATA cable in one hand, & in the other a cable that appears identicle except for some custom sleeve & heatshrink. How does someone take that flat sleeve & put it on the pre-made cable? I know the sleeve, when pushed from each end, gets a bigger inside diameter - but big enough to carefully shove the molded plastic end through it? Then pop it through some heatshrink? Wham, bam, now you have a sleeved SATA cable? Or might you tell me that people get the components needed & COMPLETELY create a data cable from scratch? ?!?!?! *shaking* my head.

Sorry, ... I am a 'wordy' person ... I call it being extremely thorough - hope you made it this far ...
