[B]Ahhh... I had forgotten about the 7/8 sp DeoreLX stuff. Yes, they were black but with silver cages which is opposite to what the original poster pointed out. But according to the information on the link provided by the original poster, the silver bodied, black cage LX is also an RD-M570 which is 9sp. The 8sp LX was the RD-M567. The initial 7sp version was the RD-M565/563 (RD-M560 just before DeoreLX usurped the DeoreDX position in the lineup and RD-M550 at its introduction) which could actually shift 8sp too if I recall correctly. The older DeoreLX RDs also had a much more rounded body design.
No the 7/8 speed stuff was all silver with black parallellagram's. You also forgot the black and gold limited edition Deore LX der's.
