What i find interesting about the ceramic bearing is how none of the suppliers or media discuss the various qualities of ceramic bearings.

There is a quality difference. You can pay for crappy ceramic bearings that have NO performance inprovement. Look online and can find ceramic bearings from $20 to $300. I doubt that there are a lot of producers of bike specific designs so people pay $200 for a bearing set that costs the buy marketing it as "ceramic" $30.

To my knowledge ceramic bearings are also more brittle and thus for wheel/hub bearings very vunerable to high impact damage.
