Re: external monitor with 2019 mbp 2560 or 3840 res?

Several guesses as to the cause of what you are seeing:

1. The LaCie 320 is wearing out. Seems unlikely, given that photo viewing is fine.

2, The 16" rMBP display is spoiling you.

3. Changes in font rendering in recent versions of Mac OS X. The method that works best for low-res displays is not the method that works best for high-res ones. Your rMBP may have the advantage of high resolution and the "right" method (for it) while the LaCie 320 may now have the advantage of neither.

Thanks yeah I've tried all that stuff in terminal for font smoothing (the ones for Catalina, which is what I'm running, specifically).  None of it helps enough, - tho I can see the small changes in appearance.

What makes zero sense to me is how the monitor could appear sharper with the 2012 then the 2019 machine.
