Which do you prefer, full posts or excerpts?

I know I have played around with the format of the front page on my site, and have at times had it display only excerpts from each post and at times have had it display full posts.  I have played with the number of words that each excerpt has, and have set it anywhere between 55 words and 150 words.

The advantage of having it display excerpts is that I can ascribe a featured image and I can have more than two stories show up on the front page.  I can also “sticky” a post, like I did with the Oreck Giveaway, and have it remain on top as long as I want.

However, I have had several people tell me that having excerpts only makes it harder for them to navigate my site.  I want my site to look good, but I want it to be easy for you to navigate.

So, I’d like to take a poll, to see which the majority of you prefer, full posts or excerpts. The poll is in the right inner sidebar. Or, you can just leave a comment to let me know which you prefer.
