New HP OMEN i27 Monitor Displays fuzzy text when connected with macbook

HP Recommended
HP OMEN i27 Monitor
macOS 10.14 Mojave

I have a 15 inch 2018 macbookbro (2880 x 1800), I recently bought the new HP Omen i27 ips monitor for programming and gaming. However, the monitor produces a darker image with fuzzy text when connected to macbook. Not sure if there is any setting I can change or if its because the monitor is 2560 x 1440 vs 2880 x 1800 macbook. I'm using a usb-c to hdmi.


I plan to use it for gaming down the road when I guy a gaming pc but if there is nothing I can do to fix the fuzzy text with mac book then I might return and get a monitor that is more aligned to the quality of macbook screen, thanks

@rcatlas Here's a few things you need to know when using an HP monitor with a Mac device:

HP monitors are not supported in a Mac environment. However, newer Macs use graphics with VESA modes and can display to most HP LCD monitors.

  • To do this, connect the monitor to the Mac while the Mac is off, and then turn on the MAC, lower the resolution on the monitor and check if it works,
  • The monitor should operate at 60Hz.The INF and software for the HP monitor are for Microsoft Windows and cannot be run in a standard MAC OS environment.
