None HDPI 1920x1200 on MBPr is actually a pretty good experiance.

    Using SwitchResX, you've got options to change screen resolution to absolute values.

    I was a concerned about the jaggy effect lcd panels give to elements of text when not running at native resolution - but instead things just seem softer. You lose a bit of sharpness but if you want the screen real-estate without the hit on performance (which is only noticeable if your looking for it) then it's a perfectly viable option.

    Anyone have a similar experience?

    Yes. I got my rMBP yesterday, and I'm quite impressed with the scaled resolutions. In fact, I think they're excellent. I am hard-pressed to tell that it's a non-native resolution. I will definitely be incorporating these into my workflow, without hesitation, as needed.

    When trying the more space resolutions in the Apple store, I couldn't tell a difference in image quality at all over the "Best for Retina" preset.
