I've never done a direct comparison b/w 1440 on a "native" 1440 display where that's the max res, and a 1920 display where you're "scaling down." I have the latter, and I know that 1440 does not look great to me. Of course, it is relative to 1920. Maybe it would look entirely fine to me if I'd never experienced 1920.
The point is, if you get a 1920 display, you should never have to scale down. If the text is too small for you to read, you can crank up the font size in Windows. I use the standard "large font" scheme, which I think is 125% of the normal font size. If that's too small for you, then you can try 140% or 160% or whatever. You'll still have all the advantages of the ultra-sharp hi-res along with more readable text.
