Just when I thought I had forgotten about you... here comes the 300x250 back into my life. I periodically cycle through different ad units, colors and positions but dammit I always return to the 300x250 ad unit. I'm stuck on 300x250 like white on rice.

Me too, because of the inventory, but 728x90 is still my star.

Right, no slight on 728x90, still my top performer, too! I experimented with those and the medium rectangles as the second and third ad units and the rectangles did better as supporting players.

Neither of you use the 336x280 adblock? I like it because it will show 336x280 or 300x250, whichever they think will pay better, as I understand it.

I see this in action all the time on my website. The visual difference is that a 300x250 will top and centered in a 336x280 space. So you get a little more white space on the sides and bottom, not enough to be distracting though.

I don't use any specifically sized ad blocks because everything is responsive and Smart Sized. Having said that, I often restrict the containing div's width with css as well as specify ad orientations to roughly achieve what ken_b is describing. While not specifying specific sizes, the approach does allow you to be able to anticipate what sizes can possibly show up in the slot.

I don't use any ad blocks in with the content; they're always at the top, in the footer and/or in the sidebars. I use the 300x250 because it's a more standard size and I don't want to resize my main content area to allow for a larger sidebar.
