I like 16:9.. I dislike black bars... I have enough of them on 16:9. 16:9 has the most support, anywho. It's not that big of a deal for people to freak out about.

16:10. 16:9 just doesn't look 'right' in comparison.

I don't like 16:10. Too tall for my tastes.
post #16 of 285
Using 16:10 though I really do not have a preference, but since I wanted to upgrade from a 25" 1080p (16:9), I thought that a 27" was not big enough to warrant such a price and so I settled on a 30" 1600p monitor (16:10).

I've been switching between 16:9 and 16:10 so often in the last 7 years that I really do not mind either of the aspect ratios - not that it makes a big difference anyway. Each do have their slight draw-backs and bonuses but people tend to great exaggerate both categories.
