Thanks. Bu the zoom does pretty much does the same as choosing a lower resolution.
I guess I got the answer what I was looking for. The native resolution is always better (no need of anti-aliasing). As per my understanding, 1920 x 1080 on 21'' will look sharper than the same resolution on 27''

I am thinking of returning the 27'' and going for a smaller 21'' which I feel would suit my needs. My only concern is the screen resolution. I have worked with a Macbook Pro Retina and always try to compare screen quality with it.
You are within Apple's 14 day return window so they would exchange without question.
I use a 21" screen and as I sit about 18" to 2ft from the screen to work, it is ideal. As for the screen resolution, I also have a retina MBP and there is no doubt that comparing the two, the retina screen is so sharp it makes the iMac screen look less crisp. However, if I haven't used the MBP for a few days, the iMac screen looks great to me!! And if I compare images on the iMac with my wife's relatively new 15" HP windows laptop, well the iMac wins hands down.
It wasn't until I got the retina screen that I thought the iMac was anything other than fantastically clear. It's all comparative!!!iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)
