I purchased this shredder to match my black and white home office. While in the picture the white looks white; however, when it arrived that white is a putty gray. While it did not match my office furniture as I would have liked, I still kept it. I have had it a little over a month and it works find--it shreds very well. It fits neatly under my desk. Overall, other than the color being off, I am very happy with my purchase.
