The "Retire Early Homepage" has a webpage called "Are you getting the shaft in your 401k?" that is an interesting discussion.

Also see their Excel spreadsheet called "The 401(k) Shaft Detector"
you can enter your numbers and determine if the taxable account is better.

It sounds like the "house" funds charge a DAILY fee, not an annual fee, and that's why the returns don't match up during the quarter.
