LOL.... OP, you got trolled, even if it did get "hotter" it isn't going to change how fast the drive writes. I hope you didn't spend all day looking for different colored face plates to increase your burning speed...
And yes, black reflects less light back, but are we talking about energy from a light source like the sun or are we talking about heat? Black won't get "hotter" because of the ambient temp, it just will reflect back less light if a light source is pointed at it, increasing it's temp.

OMG, black does not get hotter. Where do people get these ideas?
Personally I think that MYTH started with black vehicles, which seem to get hotter.
The color black does NOT absorb heat, in any way, it's just that on vehicles a shiney color reflects sun off better than a dark color.
Hense why a black car would end up being hotter compared to a silver car.
Christ... it ain't rocket science.

Funniest post of the day. I sure hope he wasn't trying to be serious.
Actually I think you guys are reading it wrong LUTZIFER is actually right.
Black does not "absorb" heat in the way I think some of you are describing. I think it is coming off as "it grabs ambient heat, it just doesn't reflect as much back thus that increases the temp of a black surface/object.
