Now the mega pixel war is over.
Many people now want big sensor to get better image.
I suggest dpreview add pixel density info.
So we know that mega pixel divided by sensor size number.
I believe we can get better image by having lower pixel density.

I believe we will get better images with a higher pixel density, but I agree that it might be nice to have it stated.

You'll get noisier images that can be viewed or printed bigger. Not a good thing.

It would also be good if all sensor sizes were given in mm, rather than using obscure terms such as M4/3.

Well, each pixel will have more noise, but for printed (or displayed) images of the same size, noise will be the same.  This is because any downsampling introduces binning, and the more pixels, the more binning.
