@Craig thanks for the tip, Craig. I will try that when I get home in a bit..I also ended up ordering the following adapter from Amazon, thank God for Prime. amazon.com/gp/product/B00BPEV1XK/… If Antialiasing works correctly I can just return the adapter, if not, I hope the adapter works. The last option would be the dock. I'll update the question once I get a working solution.

it just sounds silly that if someone doesn't have a laptop with HDMI that they will be stuck with bad looking text. How good are the adapters? I only have VGA and HDMI, no DVI on my work laptop. I was told maybe a USB to HDMI. Are those good enough?

@TheUser1024 unfortunately it seems like it is what I will have to go for. To be honest I was already considering it, to avoid having to plug 2 monitors and a keyboard when I got home from work, I guess I just hate the idea of the dock not being useful to me whenever I get a new computer from work. It's also $130 =S

I see. It's really weird though, I don't think I had ever run into a monitor that I couldn't get to display nicely. Granted, I haven't worked with hundreds of them, but a least a dozen or so, with different workstations. It's also a little strange that the text on my external monitor at work looks decent enough, with the same laptop, although this monitor uses a lower resolution, 1440 x 900

@Nazar554 I did, and it improved a little, but it is still noticeable and somehow the text is just slightly annoyingly blurry on the edges that it gives me a headache after looking at the text for a couple of hours.

@JamesRyan I did try turning ClearType off, but it looked horrible.

Hi Daniel. It is pretty weird. My monitors do have an Auto button, but when I click it it does something else, not an auto adjustment. The monitors also came with a program that can do some monitor configurations on-screen vs physically pushing the buttons, but the Auto seems to be unavailable for some reason.
