I guess there's something about how the screen seems to float when turned on, and is almost indistinguishable from the bezel when turned off, that I like about the black models. The white ones seem too 'framed' for my tastes.

I think that's mostly for the big iPads. The white isn't too noticeable on the iPhone or on the mini. I do prefer the white in general as I think they look different from the usual black tablets. But for the first time I am considering the black as I watch a lot of videos...

Does your iPad match your iPhone color?

Both white.

I went white on iPad3 , because I didn't like how my first black iPad vanished when asleep and laid down on black leather couch, ottoman, or tables.

I went white iPhone, again, because it's easier to spot, same reason. I used to have black iPhone with orange, and green bumpers... but they get grimey and gross. Wanted a black case/bumper, that doesn't get gross looking from use, but didn't want a boring all black emo phone.

White iPad, black speak easy shell.
White iPhone, gunmetal/black SPG thin bumper.

Thumb resize.

I have a black iPad and a white iPhone. I hate the white iPhone; I won't buy that shade again!

If I had an iPad it would be black like my iPhone because I like it better than the white ones.

Sometimes? Does your iPad change colors? I'm intrigued!

And yes, my iPad and iPhone do match.

I've had more than one iPhone during the time I've had my iPad 2. So my carpet sometimes matches my drapes.

I'm pretty sure the OP spent months following your viewing habits here on MacRumors, graphed a trend and had a motive, but waited for the right moment to post this topic here because he knew it would upset you, and all those months of research paid off.

Now back to the original topic.

I have a White iPad mini and Black iPhone 5 (and White/Silver iPod nano)

I have black pillows on my bed and one day I remember spending like 15 minutes searching all over my house for my phone because I could not remember where I had put it down. Finally my sister arrived home and had her call it, to my surprise I found in my room on my pillow, I felt stupid.

I originally got the Black iPad mini and one night I picked up my friend to go out and I forgot my iPad was on the passenger seat and he didn't see it. He sat on (it blended in with my black car seats) and half way in the car ride I realized what he did. It didn't break or anything, so I decided I wanted the White iPad mini instead.

Two black iPhone 5s in our house. One black 3rd gen iPad and a black Mini.

The Mini has a red Smart Cover, so that solves the visibility issues that some people have mentioned.

I have a black iPhone 5 and a black iPad Mini. I love how well they match one another.

Also still rocking a black MacBook from 2008 :-)

I feel similarly about how the screen sort of disappears on the black, more so on the iPhone 5 than on the iPad mini. But I do really like the white, especially how fingerprints don't show nearly so glaringly as on the black models.
