Connecting to an iMac

I just purchased this monitor to be used as a second display. The text is pixilated and difficult to read. I have tried adjusting the contrast and sharpness but it doesn't help. Any suggestions?

Answer: 
I originally hooked this monitor up to my 27" iMac using the HDMI connector and the max resolution was only 1600 x 900. The specs for the monitor state the max resolution is 1920 x 1080. After trying numerous things including 3rd party software I finally uninstalled the 3rd party software and switched to a DVI connection and the max resolution on my Mac automatically changed to 1920 x 1080. Since this monitor doesn't have speakers there's little reason to go with HDMI anyway. Not sure if this is your issue but the text definitely looked pixilated at the lower resolution.

Answer: 
What resolution have you set for this monitor and the dual mode you have set. Extended desktop works best, and that will allow you to set a different resolution than your main screen.

Answer: 
No it does not have speakers but it does have a sound out plug . An if you are using a video card with sound then the HDMI cable will work on a monitor with sound.

Answer: 
I apologize, but no; this monitor does not have speakers. The HDMI port can accept audio for use with the headphone jack only. Also, most computers do not have the capability to transmit audio from the video card. A separate DVI and audio cable would be required for digital video.
