Black Edition can record:

720p at 120fps
1080p at 60fps
2.7k at 30fps

Silver/Hero 2:

720p at 60fps
1080p at 30fps (30fps is pretty useless in recording anything with motion in my experience)

And the Black Edition comes with the Wifi remote which is $80 itself so that alone makes it worth getting for.
black has 12mp and better lens so if you're considering these yes it's better
but remote alone is not a reason to get the black over silver especially if you are an iphone user, with the gopro app I already have a remote controller
i also got the silver for 250 brand new from craigslist, I really think i got a good deal
