Well, look at it this way. How does 1280*720 look on a 27" display that you are sitting a 1-2' away from? That's right, it looks kind of crappy. I mean maybe if you can turn on HiDPI mode, see if that makes a difference, but at the end of the day...

It should look exactly like a 720p native display. Did you set the display driver to do the scaling? The U2711's internal scaler may not handle integer scaling properly.
