A small percent of the people who buy a product actually give a review. People are more likely to give a review if they have a complaint rather than if the product just works as expected. And I think many of the negative reviews tend to be due to user error or ignorance.

Whatever you do, be sure to have a back-up plan.

I wouldn't pay extra for the black for no noticeable gain in performance.
