I just received my unit a few hours ago. I bought mine directly from the manufacturers website (they had a Black Friday sale).

I wasn't sure what to expect there just is not a ton of information about this device online and even fewer reviews. The reviews I did find have been very positive but you still never know when ordering a brand new unit.

I should point out that I have been using the Touchsquid software on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (32GB, Deep Grey) for a few weeks. The software is pretty darn close to a 5 star product on its own, but well discuss that soon.

UN-BOXING & FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The device is exactly 7" wide 5" tall and 5/8" Thick. I was a bit surprised at the Thickness of it I wasn't sure if the "Tablet" they used was off the shelf or custom made for them and its definitely a "purpose built" unit. Its thicker than I anticipated but feels pretty good in your hand. The front side of the case feels solid whereas the back of the case does have some disconcerting "give" to it but nothing major. What I find more disappointing is the lack of "refinement" for what can only be described as a "high end" product. By this I mean the hard square edges and lack of attention to detail such as leaving open and fully exposed ports such as #1 a mini USB #2 a full size USB connector #3 a micro sd card slot and #4 the headphone jack. NONE of these connectors should be ANYWHERE ON THE FACE OR SIDE OF THIS PRODUCT! On the bottom OK, covered by a door or flap OK but not all lined up on the side.

I've looked/used and programmed a good majority of the consumer/pro remotes out there: RTI, Logitech Harmony, Philips Pronto, etc. And I have to say that the Squid is the greatest innovation to come along in home control in a long time- nothing anywhere near this price point even comes close. If you truly want reliable and simple control of a complex multi-component system with macro commands forget IR, components routinely miss the commands in macro because it wasn't aimed right, etc. No point operation is the way to go and the Squid does that beautifully with built in support for the Global Cache line of network to IR products.

This remote will simply automate any control task that you are capable of programming, including the Holy Grail of fully contolling a media/home theater PC without the need for a separate keyboard......nice. You can also run Android apps from within the Touchsquid program, so you are only one button push away from IP control of any Android controllable device including heating, lighting, Sonos, etc. Touchsquid is truly a whole home control solution that finally answers the question, "Why can't they make a remote that is at least half as cool as my cellphone?" Quite a few users would probably be capable of programming the Squid without too much trouble. That being said, the evolving customization capability of this product makes it an ideal platform for pro programmers to get the maximum user friendliness and function for end users.

This reminds me of the best features of a high end Philips Pronto combined with an iPhone. The build quality of the current generation is nice and completely acceptable for a product at this price point. My only caveat is that touchscreens with charging docks are not the perfect solution for everyone, some folks would be happier with an RF remote like the URC MX-450 which uses 4 AA batteries and is a wand style remote that smokes Harmony, RTI, etc. Highly recommended.

The TouchSquid is an awesome device. I can control all of my devices (including XBOX) with a touch of a screen. I have favorites for channels, network, etc. To think there is so much more this thing can do that I haven't even ventured into yet. Also the support staff at TouchSquid.org are exceptional. They are always there for you and actually listen to their clients. The setup is very easy...just know the make and sometimes model. The fact that I can use it to check email, social sites and web check anything I'm watching on TV is great. Now that the wife is so into it, I just wish I had two!

I thought this was a great product at first... but after 3 replacements due to charging/dock/battery issues I have finally realized I have a very expensive paperweight. I do like the ability to customize the menus, but the platform this is built on is far less reliable and intuitive than my Galaxy S4. I would recommend almost any Logitech Universal over buying this unless you really need a tablet for pictures and websurfing... Also, I noticed that if the WiFi is enabled, expect about 4 hours of battery life before you have to recharge.

I am not very technical but within the day was able to navigate through the setup. Had a couple issues and sent out an email to technical support. Within a few hours had my answers and things are working good.

Works alright but seems like it goes into a brain freeze sometimes and actually hangs. I'm sure the software runs fine on other models of Android devices but this dedicated piece of hardware really isn't up to snuff.
