    The LED is more of a white, but when opened up while plugged in there is blue tint that you can see near the circuit board.

    I don't see any Germanium transistors in there. The two pairs of black plastic "half circles" are silicon trannies.

    not to piggyback or hijack this thread, but i just bought a used one and they didn't specify which mine was. the circuit board is flipped so that i can't see the transistors or other components. it's #313 12/19/07 with a pink led. circuit board looks larger than what's pictured above. any ideas?

    If memory servers the silicon has a pink led and the germanium has blue.

    True with the exception of some of the Limited Editions.
