    When they make tv in white then maybe I will think I am am wrong about black looking better . But your paying for it get what you like.

    Not from my comparison.
    I did it outside, inside day time, inside night time with house lights on, inside night time with lights off.
    In all cases (now remember, most folks will use the first three scenarios the most), the black's screen was brighter than the white's.

    Has anyone ever wondered why do 99.9% of televisions come with black borders?

    I prefer the black. Like others have mentioned, the white border to me is distracting.

    I love the way folks refer to an item with production in the MILLIONS as "unique".

    What is so bad about looking like a large iPhone or iPod Touch.
    They are both awesome devices in their own right.

    Hey, whatever makes one happy.

    So far, the poll is as I would expect.......50/50.

    Black. Same with my iPhone 4 and iPod Classic. Do not understand why white versions were made.

    Well I think this poll so far addresses that.
    One out of every two like it.
    I actually like the white also and bought one of each.
    I just prefer the black and let go the white at cost to a friend.

    I've gone for a black one...for the simple fact I think it'll be more timeless plus will help show off my photos.

    I have a White iPad, I had the 1st gen iPad and fancied a change, my other half now has my old iPad. I don't think the White looks distracting when watching a film/ BBC iplayer on it. I love it :)

    I have a white one, hubby wants a black one. All boils down to a matter of personal preference. I think they both look great.

    First time I saw the iPad 2, I preferred the White one. It just pops more and looks cooler. Also it looks more exciting than the black one, probably because the black model has been around for a while. Black looks dull. No doubt black is more professions though so if u intend to get it for business use, I'd recommend the black one.
    Function wise, as a White iPad owner, I have had no issues with the White frame being distracting whatsoever. It looks fabulously and your eyes are focused in the centre screen 99% of the time. Also, the White arguably is better for light background apps, such as reading PDFs, ebooks, websites etc. The White frame blends in extremely well and it feels that the screen is larger than it is. Exactly the same applies for black background apps with the black model. So movies and games look 'better', or just feels more 'natural'.
    I have had a hard time deciding which colour to get too, so hopefully this post can help some troubled minds out there.
