More values are easier & cheaper in 0805.  For example, check out 20 MOhm, very
difficult to find in 0603 & if you do find it, the price is ridiculous.  For 1M and
less, I use 0603, for anything above 1M, I still use 0805.

| Norb,
| my comment would be 0603 is marginally most common over 0805s, but
| Mark could be correct.
| So 6 of one, half a dozen of the other.
