Don't want a nickname 3847383 ,

It works, but very slow and laggy.

I'm using air display to connect a new MBP to a new 21" retina imac as an external display.

It does not use the whole imac display, but instad crates a window with fixed aspect ratio. I am using the external for text only, with no video, etc. It works but is very slow. The mouse hops around with 200ms to 500 ms latency. The image is also not grisp. It looks like it is being interpolated or somethig. Definithely not displaying pixel-for-pixel.

Overall, yes it functions, and it allows me to do my work, but I am dissapointed, and would not buy the software again.

Wireless performance not so good

I installed today on my 21 inch iMac (8 GB ram, no other applications were running and network activity near zero). Very easy to setup and install.

Then I downloaded the drivers for my 15" mac book running Lion OS… no problems finding and connecting to my iMac. Both computers and the wirless device within 6 feet range.

Video performance was pretty slow over wireless connection. I tried running simple productivity tools (pages, numbers) and it would take approx. 2 seconds before clicks and typed characters showed up on my iMac monitor.

Tried face time after that… terrible performance.

Will try again over wired connection and post next update

Waste of money!!!!

Bought it to try and mirror my mac with Apple TV. In theory in worked but it's so slow displaying to my ipad it's unusable. It costs $20 for the app on your mac but they don't tell you you need to download the app for your iPad as well, which costs $10. Then I ran into an issue where my mac's login screen would only display in 1024X768. After looking into found out that others had experienced the same issue and fixed it by uninstalling Air Dsplay. Don't buy it, I want my money back.
