Default 5 Star Rating Or 10 Star Rating

What type of rating system is better?
I've been lately forming a rating system to use for my reviews. I wanted the opinion from the forum of what rating system would be best. This would not be reviews directly on the review section of the forum but rather for my video reviews. So put your opinion on the poll and drop some feedback.

Here is what I was thinking....
I like the idea of a 10 point rating system with .5 intervals but people seem to judge these ratings incorrectly. A rating of 5 in a 10 point system should be considered 'Average' but people seem to think of it as less. However with a 5 point system a rating of 2.5-3 "seems" much better compared to a rating of 5 with a 10 point system.

What do you guys think?

10 star with .5 is better because someone may think a 9 is much worse than a 10 and who knows maybe you thought it wasnt worth a perfect score but needed a near perfect one. out of 5 stars the choices are so limited its not funny.

Give it a letter grade. A+ through F-. in that case C is average. Everyone knows that :-)

Personally, when i do video reviews, i have them just haven't posted them because i have to redo them (long story) but i used a 5 point scale. I will switch to a letter grade next time. If it's numbers i like 10 stars better than 5 it confuses some people.

I like the 10 point rating system with .5 intervals, it translates into a 100 point system really easily too.
