I have two adorable furballs, one black and white- Benji, and the other turning more cream - Lizzie. They have great temperaments and that was the most important factor for me. I love both to pieces, but I am partial to black and white partis. However, most people are attracted to Lizzie because of her coloring, her cream is tipped with black and silver.
Advantages of lighter coats: easy to see their expression, easy to photograph, as Kara mentioned you can see dirt, insects etc.
I haven't had any issues with tear staining with Lizzie (I feed both 1 tablespoon of yogurt everyday). As to the grooming, I think the type of coat makes a huge diffrence, Benji has a very soft and silky coat, Lizzie is very soft but more cottony.
