Its late, I'm tired, so I'll give you the pros and cons .
Clear braces, look better, get the job done slower, break somewhat commonly.
Metal braces, look worse (if that bothers you), easier to work with, get the job done faster, rarely break, a bit easier to keep clean (smaller).
That being said clear works just fine, but metal are still a little better and faster.
If the look of braces really bothers you go with clear.
