I want to upgrade my monitor, with either 32" 2560*1600 or 32" 2560*1440

One of those should be :

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824260132

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824014372

The monitor i have now, is BenQ GW2760HS / res. 1920*1080

Do you think, the fonts, generally speaking, would look better / sharper / crisper, on 2560*1600 / 2560*1440, than 1920*1080 ?

I tried everything possible, on my 1080p monitor, but i don't really like the way the fonts look like. I googled a lot of forums, about. But still no result.

Could you advice me, please ?

Thank you

How are the fonts looking on iMac 27 inches / 2560 x 1440 / ??
Are they looking better than 1920 x 1080 monitor / Hackintosh ?
If i would have a monitor with 2560 x 1440, would the fonts looks same like iMac 27 ?

They will look the same unless you enable HiDPI mode which basically makes everything look bigger without loss in resolution. If so, you will see a very clear difference between 1080p and QHD which will look like a "retina" display. If you don't enable HiDPI, then you will have more space to work with. 

 

Since the dell is a little smaller, it will have sharper detail with a higher resolution aswell. And the IPS display will have better and more accurate colors opposed to the VA display on the BenQ. The dell also has a wider color space which won't be too useful 99.9% of the time unless you like oversaturated colors. 

 

I would recommend the dell overall.

I've seen a lot of new 28 inch 4K displays. There is a 4K 28 inch panel that was made however, as of now, all the 28 inch 4K displays are the same TN panel.

 

You can enable HiDPI and have clear fonts but I recommend you don't but those panels, there is more to displays than resolution.

 

TN LCD panels usually suffer in contrast and color accuracy. IPS displays will give you a more vibrant and accurate color with deeper black levels. TN Panels do have better response time for gaming but if your looking for quality, I advise you stay away from those. 

 

I advise you buy the dell or some other 30 inch 1600p IPS panel with wide gamut turned off unless you need to use it for photo editing. 


Also check out this monitor: http://www.amazon.co...ords=lg 34 inch

 

It's a 3440x1440 monitor and is also IPS. However, it is slightly more expensive then the dell if you are willing to pay the extra money. It also has extremely light anti-glare coating, it could be considered as a "glossy" display as opposed to the dell which has pretty high anti glare coating. 

 

It has more 1 million more pixels for more detail and sharper fonts then the dell but it is a very wide monitor if you think you would be fine with the very wide aspect ratio.

I didn't really understand this

" You can enable HiDPI and have clear fonts but I recommend you don't but those panels, there is more to displays than resolution"

What do you mean ?

Thank you

Sorry if I didn't explain it clear enough but the 4K 28 inch displays you are talking about use TN panels. TN panels have much less color accuracy and contrast compared to IPS panels. You can buy the 4K displays if you don't mind the reduced color range and lower contrast. 

 

But if you care for color accuracy and contrast or whatever, I recommend you get the 34 inch LG monitor. It's pretty much the same pixel count if not a little more than the 15 inch retina macbook pro.

Nobody15000, as i said, i am more concerned about the fonts quality. I know that TN panel are worse, compared to A-MVA / IPS / panels.

All i want / and i really mean it, is to have clear / nice / fonts / under OS X, especially when browsing the internet.

If i decide to get an 4K monitor, i would spend more money, so i would take IPS, that's for sure.

I'm asking about 4K, because of the " scaled -HiDPi " option.

I wouldn't but 21:9 aspect ratio monitors, i just don't like them. They are much too wide, IMO

This one, for example :

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824260146

4K / 32 inches / IPS

Yes, i know, it's pretty expensive but i'd try to save some money to get this one.

The 4K under HiDPI option if it's at 200% should give you as clear text as the retina macbook pro so if you are going to save money for an IPS 4K monitor at 32 inches, you will get clearer detail.

 

I think the 10.9.3 update did bring much more native support for 4K Displays. 

 

Also there's a dell 24 inch IPS 4K monitor if you don't mind smaller screen size, it's much cheaper: http://www.amazon.co...l 4k monitor 24

 

And if a 4K monitor is your final decision, make sure you have displayport cables because through DVI or HDMI, you can't drive 4K past 30hz.

You said

At 200 % ? What do you mean ? You can't put it at 100 %  /  200 % under OS X

I mean like this, 100% means normal size, and at normal size, an icon will be 64x64. At 200% the icon will be doubled in vertical and horizontal resolution being 128x128 pixels. A 4K display at 200% dpi will have the same workspace as a 1080p display at 100%
