Black windows-grid on exterior or between the glass?

I am building a modern farmhouse with Andersen 400 series black on black double hung windows. I chose a simple 2 over 2 pattern.....1 vertical mullion on each sash.

I've read that an exterior grid is better than between the glass because glare can make the window look like a "black hole." Is there truth to that? The exterior is white board and batten if that's relevant. I'm not sure which way to go. Pictures and or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
