WPF text rendering looks horrible

WPF text rendering has always given me issues. I did a comparison to Photoshop CC, and the differences are very clear.

WPF text looks horrible. Using ClearTypeHint does not seem to affect it. I am not applying any rendering effects like blur/dropshadow (There is a known issue with this).

Microsoft Word and web browsers render the text slightly differently than photoshop but they still look very similar to photoshop. This issue happens on both my work and home PC (both Windows 7).

Has anyone else experienced this issue? What can i do to tweak text appearance?
