I'm told they weight lighter and thus their rotational mass is lower due to the lighter ceramic balls. This keeps the unsprung weight less. Don't know how true...

It should be true - I'll weigh them when I clean them

Well, for the price you pay, I don't mind. Besides what can go wrong with the ceramic bearings? Do people expect them to be replaced when they fail due when them are being misused?
Bro, any high speed ball bearing is only able to sustain a radial load. If install it on the wheel axle, small impact from side is enough to broke it.
So it will be wise if you only install it on the drive train like mid/2spd shaft, diff ass'y and 2 spd assy.
About the seal choice, IMHO we pay the ceramic price to get a minimum friction/inertia on the bearing side. Adding any kind of plastic seal will eventually reduce their performance since there is a drag on it.
So metal shielded is the only choice if someone want to upgrade to ceramic bearing.
Just my 2 rupiah.

I'm in Holland at the moment. No time to check the forum. BTW, fantastic weather. Clear skies but cold. I think about 5 to 10 degree C. I think Julius is happy.

Dutch guys, any guess where this is?
