The best result is to use the native resolution for the screen - nothing more or less. This is what ijack has given above.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

what device, what tv type (LED plasma or LCD), what hdmi cable (sometimes it matters)? most devices are automatic for the highest resolution it can handle. unless it is set by the user. it can get very technical when you break down each component of UHD. if he asked you why you aren't using 4k is because not every device supports it. like how HD-DVD and Blu-ray came about. anyway higher resolution and refresh rate mean higher quality (not always depending on tv type)

in my case syncmaster2333 (samsung)
it is a cable with hdmi at the computer end and dvi (perhaps?) at the monitor end.

Native resolution is 1920x1080, that's what you should be using. If that makes desktop icons and/or desktop fonts too small, simply enlarge them. And depending which browser you use, there are ways of enlarging that as well. I run IE at 125% & Firefox at 120%.
