Simple question on reversing an ESC

I am in the middle of my first quad build right now.

I am using the HobbyKing Blue series ESC. The programmer has an option to reverse direction. Is that ok to do, vs changing the wires.

The wires are hidden and it will save me a lot of time if I can just program the ESC.

It will be fine to do it through ESC configuration. I have seen some people recommend against using the ESC configuration because if the ESC somehow gets reset to defaults, the motor will run in the wrong direction. So if that happens just reverse it again.
