Hy everybody

I tried to "simulate"  a retina display on my 32 inch lcd tv / 1920 x 1080( as a pc monitor ) and the fonts looks clear / better but they are huge.


After i checked this out, i found that the best solution would be a monitor with 2048×1536 or higher resolution.


Did anybody here tried Hidpi mode on a hackintosh / Mac Mini / on a 27 inch ( or higher ) monitor with a higher resolution than 1920 x 1080 ?

Would be a great idea to upgrade my lcd tv ? If i'd know that the fonts looks better on a higher resolution than full hd, i would upgrade it.

But first, i'd like to here your advices.

Thanks in advance.

The key thing with super high resolution, is to have more pixels per square space of a display. In other words the smaller the pixels are, the more details can be reproduced and picture would look more "crisp". Just compare two displays of the same size (say 17" notebook) but with different resolution (say 1600x900 VS 1920x1080). The screen size (dimensions) is the same but image would look quite differently.


Bottom line, buy smaller display with higher resolution. IMO
