Hello friendlies, I have a 2012 Macbook Pro Retina (whatever the first model released was, top end specs for the time), and I just finally made the long-awaited jump to external monitor-dom. I do a good bit of music recording, so I'm pretty pumped about the extra screen real estate - only problem is my new display is just...not as sharp as my Macbook Pro. Common issue, I know but what's the solution? The monitor I bought is the LG 24M45: http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronic...=UTF8&qid=1437178580&sr=8-1&keywords=lg+24m45. It's not 4K or anything special, and my only connection options are HDMI and that huge, clunky D-SUB (which has no input on my computer). So I'm using HDMI. The picture quality isn't TERRIBLE - it's just noticeably worse than the Macbook Pro, in that I can distinctly see pixels in text, etc. Is there any particular setting I can use to make this better, or is my only option springing for a higher-quality, more-expensive monitor. If the latter, what monitor should I get? Do I have to get an Apple Thunderbolt Display? Do I need to be using DisplayPort connections instead of HDMI? Any guidance here would be much appreciated. I just want to have the most comparable picture quality between my Macbook Pro Retina and my external as possible. I don't think this monitor is gonna do it.
