16:9 or Just Scan for Roku?

I have Roku 3 and I'm wondering what is a better aspect ratio 16:9 or Just Scan. On my TV 16:9 includes some overscan, while Just Scan turns overscan off and shows entire picture. On Some models Just Scan is called something else but basically does the same thing. So which one is better? 

 

Thanks

Re: 16:9 or Just Scan for Roku?

I guess it's a little bit of a personal preference, but the only reason I can think of to use 16:9 is that the picture is slightly zoomed.  In the digital age, there's really no need for overscan anymore and using it may cut off something you want to see.
