Average Using 54Mbps router so a bit of lag but nice for email. I put photoshop palettes on it as well as blender rendering window. The touch capability was slow and unresponsive at times in photoshop but the picture was always displayed upto date. 4/5 because Im having trouble getting the display to work over usb.

Works fine over WiFi but not over USB Works quite well with my Lenovo Yoga 8" tablet and Mac Book Air, but only via WIFI. USB mode is never able to connect (I enabled USB debugging and tried different connection modes).

Very frustrating I was asked to write up a recommendation for iDisplay to be used as an extra monitor for CAD -- instead when I tried it it wouldn't connect to my Mac either on WiFi or USB! So much for the glowing write-up, instead I've skipped the whole story & will just express my disappointment here. Completely unusable with Mac Air (new) and Nexus 7 (original).

Hardly works and zero customer service Although the wifi connection works fine I am having major problems with the USB connection. I have emailed the company directly and posted on their Facebook but have had no response at all. With terrible customer service like that I can't give more than 1 star. Avoid this app, and more importantly , this company at all cost.

Still doesn't work in Windows 8 Despite their promises to make this work in Windows 8, it still doesn't. I've never actually seen it work at all, and they haven't updated their nonfunctional Windows 8 beta in months.
