I got the new bar graph and I think I'm liking it better. As you can see all the LEDs are in a line so its a bit more straight forward. The size of the two is identical. The only downside to using this graph is that it has 10 LEDs and my shift register only has 8 output pins so I can only drive 8 of the LEDs with it. There are many ways to deal with this, but the fact that you do have to deal with it is something to think about, especially if you want things to look real nice.
