I currently have a 2011 15 inch MBP. Right now I am able to connect to a LG 34" UltraWide Full HD monitor. The resolution of the monitor is 2560x1080. I connected to the monitor via a Thunderbolt to HDMI adaptor. I don't know the specs of the adaptor, but I do know it's probably at least 5 years old. Text and images are not crisp on the monitor. They look significantly lower res than on my MBP display. I was able to play around with the settings of the monitor and change the ratio from "wide" to "original." This sharpened up the image to be much closer to that of the MBP display, but vertical black bars now flank the screen. Is there a solution in which I can use the monitor display and have the text look similar to that of my MBP? Is this a limitation of the graphics card on the older MBP? Also, would a 2017 MBP be able to display properly on the monitor? This will be primarily used for a Microsoft Office, EndNote, Safari, mail, and other productivity software. Thank you for your help.
