    I honestly can't tell what it does.

    Do you guys think its better to use or not to? I have a 27" so not sure if it would help or not...maybe itd make text a little easier on the eyes w/ the big screen?

    Font Smoothing is the same as anti-aliasing. It makes fonts less pixelated, but it can also make them look blurry. You won't see much difference either way on an iMac b/c the screen is optimized for Macs. It's really more of a setting for 3rd party monitors.
