Both are just so-so as far as expense ratios and investment options

one mans so-so is another man's I wish!!

We each contribute 10% to our respective 401ks

I might be inclined to keep the 10% allotment to the company plan. Sounds like not doing so - you are making an investment decision based on the performance of the instrument in the last couple of years. Once it was even 50%. Do you fell it might be there again? Any signs the company is profitable?

Deciding on the taxable account route will have a lot to do with your investing habits. Givin up the tax deferral status can really effect the bottom line even more than a so-so fee/expense ratio. While aj mentions the "tax diversification" if you do chose a taxable account, manage it as such. Which usually equates to buy and hold non-dividend paying equity.
