the strong blue light

The 1TB Toshiba disk I bought a couple of weeks ago to upgrade storage on the slug has one big drawback in my view. Whilst the disk itself is fine, Toshiba have made the mistake of sticking a very intense blue LED on the front panel, presumably because they think it looks “cool”. Well it isn’t, it is just irritating. The damned thing is so bright it lights up the study when the main lights are off. Two strips of black insulating tape seem to have cured it though.
