I bought my MBPr 13" 2 months ago. The screen is really beautiful. But for my personal habits , I want to connect it to the external 23" LCD display ( LG IPS235 ) with the HDMI to DVI cable.


I have chose the resolution 1920 x 1080 ( best for LG IPS235 ) , but the font looks really terrible in the external display , especially in Traditional Chinese. Just like out of focus or failed font-smoothing. I have tried lots of ways to improve this situation , ex: replace the different cable ( mini-display port to DVI or HDMI to HDMI ) , change font-smoothing level or modify default system font. However , they don't work …


I am a web designer and front-end engineer. This problem really kill me. Is there any way can fix it ?
BTW , my OS version is 10.8.3

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
