Since I primarily do gaming at home, I really haven't cared too much about the loss of going from 16x10 to 16x9. My last two monitors have been a Samsung LCD 23" and just recently a Samsung LED 27", both of the Synchmaster family and running at 1920x1080. I find that I care more about color quality, response rate, and contrast ratio more than the loss of total number of pixels. No doubt that there are 16x10s with just as good image quality, but after 4 years of running 16x9 I really don't notice the difference (mainly because I don't switch back and forth between the two aspects on a daily basis). All that being said, in a perfect world, all other specs equal, 16x10 is a better ratio.
