Pancetta - Do you prefer more fat or less fat on a slice/piece?

I'm not a particular lover of pork, although so many recipes do call for pancetta. Maybe it would be helpful (for me - and maybe others) to get a little better understanding of what pancetta to purchase.
I'm wondering if
1) there is a brand of pancetta that a person prefers for all recipes, regardless of the amount of fat (and then trims too much fat? or uses more fat from that piece).
2) one brand of pancetta that a person likes 'less' fat included - to use in certain receipes.
3) one brand of pancetta that a person likes 'more' fat included - to use in certain recipes.

Hoping for some answers so that I can use this product that is so prevalent in many ethnic recipes. Thanks. (I can't even remember the last time I've seen a chartcuterie/butcher shop.)
