Black Panasonic Panels?

Hey all,

I see a few mentions of people getting Tesla to install the black SC-B2 series of Panasonic's panels. I am slated to get the SC330's. My specialist is telling me they only offer the Hanwha Q all blacks and the 330's (my specific case; grey backsheet).

Given I cannot get reliable photos of recent installs that give me an impression of how the panels might look on my high pitched, highly visible roof, I am debating going to the all black panels. Has anyone gotten all black Panasonic's from Tesla this year?

When I saw the black 320B2 Panasonic panels, the color was not very consistent. Keep in mind these photos are indoor, and their appearance varies based on viewing angle and lighting. QCells vary the least to my eye. 330s were pretty consistent. Are yours similar to these? What about color variations in yours?

As a side note my experience with Tesla has been amazing. The customer service and responsiveness has been nothing short of amazing.


Here are the Hanwha 315s. They seem more consistent in color.


Here are the 330s:
