    Guys as the title states I would like some advice on a monitor so I can use my MBP in clam shell mode. I just got back from buying a Dell 1080p monitor and hooked it up only to be dismayed at how horrible text is. I bought it since I saw the reviews that stated how good it was for a 27" 1080p monitor even though I had my doubts since everything looks so clear on my Retina Display.

    I'm looking for something where text is almost as nice as on my laptop if not exactly the same but I don't want to spend too much. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, my eyes could only take a couple of hours of blurry pixelated text.

    Agree with the above. You'll have to move to 4K to get anything better.
    Possibly also consider a 3440 x 1440 ultrawide, though they'll be almost as expensive as 4K.

    I use the Dell u2715h and I could not be happier. One of my favorite purchases.
