Hi all, I have a 2014 rMBP and recently purchased a budget 1080p 23.6 inch display from ASUS. Now I know that compared to the retina screen, obviously this monitor isn't going to look as nice given the DPI and color accuracy are significantly lower. However, when I plug my rMBP to the monitor via HDMI --> HDMI the text looks horrendous. Everything is blurred and it honestly gives me a headache. When I plug a Windows laptop HDMI --> HDMI (same Amazon Basics brand HDMI cable), it looks SIGNIFICANTLY better. Now I've read some people have had this problem with Mac Minis and something about the monitor being recognized as a "TV" when using the HDMI output rather than a "monitor". However, on my monitor there's no options to change how the HDMI is recognized. Also, in the display options in the MBP it shows the correct model number of the monitor. Basically, it sounds like some people have gotten their monitors to look better when using thunderbolt --> DVI or VGA on their Mac Mini. I was wondering if anyone has had similar success with a rMBP and if so, which brand of adapter they used (Apple vs 3rd-party). Also, if anyone is using a budget (<$250) monitor with their rMBP I would love any suggestions on which model is the best for text viewing and the correct way to connect my laptop to the monitor. I don't do any fancy photo-editing or anything like that so color accuracy isn't of the utmost importance. I just want a large (23-24 inch) matte monitor that's great for doing work (Word, PDF, Excel, web browsing) at home. Thanks!
