Changed the font of Hacker News to Ubuntu Mono a while ago with https://github.com/darkreader/darkreader and can see the difference between those characters in your post quite clearly
Personal favorites: Roboto Mono, Hack / DejaVu Sans Mono, Fira Code / Fira Mono, Source Code Pro.
I like Inconsolata, but in my opinion, its 'l' looks an awful lot like a '1'.
I wouldn't use this for my terminal or source code, personally, but I think this font would look fantastic for old-school JRPG text.
Check it out at a smaller point size than the example. Hinting makes it less ornamented at smaller sizes (< 11pt).
(then I won't be able to see it; I work at 14pt)

I use OCR A as my terminal font - it does a good job of character variation and also looks retro cool.
Hack is quite good.
Inconsolata is my go-to code font, hands down.
Libertine for text, Biolinum for labels.
...most of those fonts only look good on Retina displays...
