I have the silver one (Euphonix branded, mc control v2). It has been replaced by a new silver one because of powering problems. (no power, probably internal power failure).

Although I do not like black colour, I will go for the new AVID black one, they normally upgrade the screen and the faders.

The original silver ones got upgraded (to control v2). But I can't remember if this coincided with them turning black. I think there are silver control v2 units. When they turned black, I'm not sure if anything (other than colour) changed.

Control V2 was a hardware change, not software. The screen was upgraded and was a huge improvement on the V1. They were still Euphonix and only went black when they were branded Avid... Silver V1 and V2's are easily identified by checking the Shuttle wheel... Black shuttle wheel's were V2

If you get a silver (Euphonix) Control, make sure it's a V2...
