There are at least three formats: 4:3, 16:10 and 16:9.

I prefer 16:10 - I have a 24-inch monitor with 1920 x 1200 pixels.

I don't like 16:9, it takes away too much vertical space. Unfortunately many manufacturers seem to make most of their new monitors 16:9.

I preffer two 'normal' ones (4:3), and an extended desktop. This way I can have two windows in a one-button-fulscreen mode

It will also depend on the nature of work one does. My brother is in video editing etc. & he is more comfortable with bigger screens.

Also people prefer there secondary monitors to be bigger. Again a matter of choice.
