"$30 seem pretty steep to me"

July 09, 2010  |  By Cowicide

 |  Version: ScreenRecycler 1.38

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I really wish some other devs would give this guy some competition & force this dev to sell this at a more competitive price. Can't believe after all these years this is still the only game in town to add another Mac as a virtual monitor. That's said, I'm very glad at least someone is making this app!

"An Indispensable Mac application!!"

February 10, 2008  |  By jflaster1

 |  Version: ScreenRecycler 1.14

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.


Works well and is very fast. and the Author is very good at responding to support requests and investigating bugs.

Perfect for taking advantage of Sun or Linux Workstation/Server with a monitor to use as a extra screen for a MAC.

I'm using it with a macbook connected to 24" display and then connecting up to TightVNC running on a Solaris 10 Workstation

"Works as promised"

May 02, 2007  |  By mikedb66

 |  Version: ScreenRecycler 1.00RC1 build 876

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Works exactly as stated. The only stressful part was getting the VNC client running on the PC - but I blame Microsoft for that. I had a small issue regarding activation behind a firewall, but Patrick was very quick to respond, and his fix works great.

"Wow!"

Summary

Way to go on this revolutionary app!

Don't know if it's the ScreenRecycler server or the client, but JollysFastVNC.0.60 was whacked out for me -- graphics glitches -- though still kind of usable.

"Compatible with Panther"

March 27, 2007  |  By Darth Brook

 |  Version: ScreenRecycler 0.92

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
@ Cowicide:

ScreenRecycler IS compatible with Panther. I'm running 10.4.8 on my G5 and can connect to the monitor of my G4 running 10.3.9. JollysFastVNC crashes on the G4 but the ancient VNCThing 2.2 works.

My only major complaint with ScreenRecycler so far is that I can't move the mouse off the screen to the left onto the second screen, only to the right. My G4's monitor sits to the left of the G5's and so the movement seems counter-intuitive. I've tried to rearrange the screens in the G5's Displays prefpane, and of course it works when the second monitor is hooked directly to the G5, but not through ScreenRecycler.

"works pretty well"

October 21, 2006  |  By FredAkbar

 |  Version: ScreenRecycler 0.62

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I just downloaded it yesterday and for the most part it has worked well for me. I'm running a 20" Intel iMac using a 15.4 HP Pavilion for the second display, with VNC Navigator on the HP.

I'm not sure if the readme says to turn on Apple Remote Desktop in your Sharing prefs, but you have to do that or it won't work.

I'm using it over a wireless connection (Airport Extreme network, 54 Mbps) and it's a bit choppy, and there are often artifacts. I'm going to get a crossover ethernet cable and see if it's better.
