I didn't need to try both colors. I've used shiny black things before (PSP for example) and already know that they're s***. I still hate that Nintendo made the white Wii U the crappy deal and only made Deluxe Sets in awful piano black. Also, f*** them for keeping the White 3DS XL Japan only.
White should not only have been standard, but black is the one that should have been relegated to a single bundle. Make the good color widely available and keep the crappy color in low numbers. Better yet, don't make a crappy color in the first place.
