: Hi, Terry,

: First of all, I'd like to thank you for putting up such an informative and useful site. I'm about to purchase a Toto UltraMax toilet, and the only choice that I need to make is whether to purchase one with a round bowl or an elongated bowl.

: What are the benefits/shortcomings of each one. Some people say that the elongated ones are more comfortable... and that, indeed, is my main concern. On the other hand, I've basically been using toilets with round bowls for most of my adult life, with few problems. I don't know if height/weight are relevant factors, but I'm 5'11", 225 lbs.

: Any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

: Thank you for your time and help.

I have both in the house, and from a comfort standpoint, I feel no difference. However, neither of them have a reading light, which is a real negative.(:o Seriously though, I can't find a decent replacement seat for the elongated one. For that reason, when I remodel that bathroom, it will be replaced with a round bowl.
