I just got started building my "man cave" a couple weeks ago after ordering my first Alien (M17). I went back and forth on what screens to get just as I had gone back and forth on what Alien notebook to get. Was drooling over the U3011 16:10 ratio but dang that is a huge price tag. The U2711 would have been nice as well even though it's 16:9. So, I settled on a pair of U2412m (16:10) for now. Should be arriving today. :)
16:9 will have better experience to eye for any 1080p displays. But 16:10 gives more area which at times make visually uncomfortable experience - would be odd in sitting nearer to the screen.

16:10 is best if your purpose is mainly productivity oriented i.e., except for gaming and movies its awesome.
