I've just bought a 4k Acer CB280 to pair with my rMBP Mid-2012. I can achieve any resolution at 30hz fine, forcing 60hz results in text looking distorted as if the Macbook hasn't turned on its retina settings.

Just came looking to see if I could use Airplay, as it would be very convenient to be able to stream from any of my devices. However, I have been using medialink for years, using my mac mini as a media server. It had some troubles when it first came out, but in recent years I've found it extremely reliable, quality is excellent for all definitions.

From your picture it does look like your cable is to long and to close to the external monitor screen, ...

Go to "Settings", then click on "Displays" & change the Resolution to "Best for display", mine was stuck on "Scaled" after I had it hooked up to the TV. Personally, I think 1440x900 looks best on my laptop, but if you click "Scaled" then 1024x640 the general font will get even bigger.

I ended up "fixing" it by re-installing OS X on the system disk. Brute force due to lack of success with other methods, but all good now.

It looks like timing issue between monitor and your Macbook. You might try different cable or just turning monitor off and on with a button (much better than wearing off HDMI socket btw)
