Default Black D2 or White D2?

Apologies, another inane thread about something that really doesnt matter!

Going to get a D2, after my clix has shown itself to be pitiful on the battery front, but can't decide between getting the black or white version.
So I thought I'd ask you lot which ones you have seen in person, and what you thought of them...

i Kinda like the white one, but heard the white plastic looks cheap in person, which you cant tell in pics, true? Also, is it annoying to view the screen with a white background? Guess I'm concerned it will seem a bit gimmicky in the long term.

So, which do you think looks best in real life, black or white?

Or maybe black with gold...hmmm. Decisions, (pointless) decisions!

Every single piece of electronics looks so much more stylish and more beautiful when it's black. My D2 is black.

I’m thankful we’re not all the same, for me I prefer black, but to each his own and I’m glad there’s other options as white or red

i'd go black, but it really should be your preference, the d2 is never gonna get mistaken for an ipod ( well only by the stupidest of stupids) so there is no worries there.

Black - personally, I find everything else to be distracting. I can't imagine watching video on something with a white, red, or whatever border...

I have a white D2 and it doesn't look cheap at all. In fact, it looks awesome!

Also, the white border does not distract the viewing.

Wow, that is smexy through and through. They should do something like that on the D3... I would buy that color, heck I would even pay a little extra for it.
