So that's an Epson 340*, same drive as used in Mega STE and TT but with the regular PC-front. It was also sold rebranded by HP (Hewlett Packard D2035-60011), and you should still be able to find them on ebay every now and then.

*) Often the sticker says Epson 300, but that's just the common name for both the 340 (HD) and DD (380) versions.

Not sure how to color match easily, but this one isn't white at least and looks similar to my Falcon drive: https://www.ebay.com/itm/EPSON-SMD-340- ... Sw8zdawR4C

I made a quick visual comparison between my original Falcon drive and a HP-branded Epson 340 I have laying around and the HP-one is lighter grey than the Falcon drive. But I can't know whether that holds true for all the HP-drives or not, if you're really after the exact color ...
