Exactly, I wanted to know if 16 segment would make a difference compared to 14 segment. I think there is another nuisance, no 14 or 16 digit display I am able to find has the comma, just the dot.

Nice, but expensive as you said and while easy to interface you need to have a char rom anyway, so they are not straightforward as it seems at first glance.

I prefer Leds, but just because of their tolerance to mechanical abuse, VFDs are great.
