If there was one aspect ratio that you prefer over another, which is it.

Please specifiy why you prefer one aspect ratio over another.


For me, "16 : 10" is my preferred aspect ratio because it handles "4 : 3" & "16 : 9" video content with reasonable black bars around it. This aspect ratio also fits the field of view of my glasses perfectly.


I also prefer the "even : even" number ratio over the "even : odd" number ratio as a tech enthusiast

16:9 for compatibility's sake. I can get extra monitors if I want wider or taller I suppose.

For now, I just choose the "small" option for my taskbar and get rid of all the toolbars in my browser I can, to get more vertical space, like an "artificial 16:10".

3:4, not to be confused with 4:3, for the vertical shmups.

It depends on the resolution. If I'm using 1280 x 1024 in an older PC game I don't want it stretched out, so I set it where it will be 4:3. Otherwise it's 16:9 (or whatever 1920 x 1080 is).

Why wouldn't you want a rotatable 16:9?
