I've purchased a brand new late 2012 Mac Mini with 1T fusion drive, upgraded processor and 4 GB of Ram.


I'm running two 23.6 inch Samsung S24B300 monitors: one through the Thunderbolt port with a HDMI convertor and the other through the HDMI output.


The monitor running through the Thunderbolt port looks good, with sharp text and excellent colours.


The monitor running through the HDMI port looks washed out and the text is a bit fuzzy.


Yes, I've changed around the monitors and the cables etc. The results are the same and the culprit is the Mac Mini, not the monitors or the cables.


Is this normal?


Is anyone else running two monitors in this setup?


Could upgrading the RAM assist?



Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
