comment Can I use my Macbook Pro Retina as extra monitor for my iMac through Thunderbolt
Thank you :) Tried it and unfortunately it's just as sluggish as Air Display :(

comment Can I use my Macbook Pro Retina as extra monitor for my iMac through Thunderbolt
(part 2) arstechnica.com/apple/2013/10/… Since the communication method for the display and the networking operate separately from each other it seems that this is a limitation of the technology for the time being. That being said, we look forward to improvements in this area as it would be a great way to use Air Display."

Here's their - so far - final reply (part 1): "We had a chance to do some testing of our own today and we are seeing similar results to what you described. As far as we can tell it seems to be related to the thunderbolt networking capabilities still being developed. Ars Technica published a great article about this and the results of testing that they performed.

Here's their reply: "To be honest, we haven't tried using the Air Display Mac client over a Thunderbolt connection since Mavericks was released. I'll speak with one of our QA engineers to see if we can set something like this up and get back to you as soon as possible." I'll get back when I hear from them.

Great idea! But unfortunately it's just a sluggish as with WiFi. Tried Air Display (v2.0.2) connecting to the other Macs Thunderbolt IP with WiFi turned off on both matcs to make sure it was using Thunderbolt. Will write to Air Display support to hear what they have to say / if they have any ideas / new releases that will support Thunderbolt in a better way.

Thanks :) Yes, I've tried Screen Recycler uses. It also use the network connection (and VNC) which does not allow the second display to appear fluid. Same problem with Air Display that I mentioned in the question. So still looking for a solution supporting the use of a thunderbolt cable :)
