I think the position would suggest which they are. It's unintuitive for me if input is not on left and output on right. Bigger master in the middle seems pretty suggestive.

The main advantage of color is that you only have to glance at it if you know what the colors mean. It might just be me, but I prefer minimal text. Text is the single most cluttering element of any UI. Having to read or recall acronyms is far less intuitive than colors to me. Call me crazy.
