I received this unit as part of the Vines program, so it was free and I don't have a bone to pick with Logitech. I was unsure that this was a product I would find useful, especially with my spouse bemoaning the fact that we have 'another' remote to contend with. I sort of wanted to prove her wrong. As you'll see I wasn't entirely successful.
Packaging was excellent...this could have been an Apple-branded product from the way it was packaged. Even the inside of the box had some foam padding glued to the top (for some reason), but I was impressed. The unit can be seen in the photos...very streamlined and unobtrusive.
Setup can be easy, if you have an existing Harmony remote for your system. I just opened the software on my computer and copied the device information into myHarmony.com online setup. The only problem I had was finding the setup site, since you first have to hook up the unit, via USB to your computer, then create a new account. Once you do this, the site recognizes the device, and leads you through the setup. Very easy.
Downloading the app to the iPad and iPod Touch was also very easy. When you synch the app to the device, after it is placed in your viewing room, it asks for your password, and the synch proceeds with no problems here. The iPad app is different than the iPod app. I would only use the iPod app in an emergency and find very little benefit from using it.

1. Panasonic TC-P65ST30 3D HDTV
2. Western Digital TV Live (DLNA Player, streams locally stored movies, as well as Netflix and Hulu, etc)
3. Pioneer VSX-1020-K 7.1 channel receiver
4. Playstation 3 (I have the PS3 adapter that Logitech sells. It sits next to the link and receives IR signals from it, then converts them to bluetooth commands for the PS3).
I keep it all in a closet with the door closed, to keep my smaller kids out. I ran wires from the TV before I finished my basement, including one for the infrared "eye" (the cm^3 block that you stick to the infrared sensor on the TV).
I have a fast and reliable internet connection (40Mbps, CenturyLink). My router hardly ever goes down.
1. The Harmony Link requires an Apple device or an Android device. All of my Apple devices work perfectly with it (iPad 1st Gen, iPhone 4S and 5, ipod touch 3rd gen). My Kindle Fire HD does not since the app is not available in the Amazon App Store.
2. There are two 2.5mm (mini headphone jack size, non-standard) jacks in the back if you want to send commands by wire. I used a 2.5mm male to two 3.5mm female splitter to enable control to more devices (I used the logitech eyes that came with my Harmony 890, but you can find them on the internet by googling "infrared eye"). If you want to use standard sized cables back there, you'll need to buy a 2.5mm male to 3.5mm female coupler.
3. This is a device that communicates with your devices one-way. Ex. It has no way of knowing if your TV actually receives the "on" signal it sends.Read more ›
1. Easy to setup.
2. Provides basic remote functions Power, Play, Stop, Fast Forward, Menu, List, etc.
3. Provides tv programming guide
1. Virtual remote is limited to basic remote functions.
2. You can't replace your actual remote if you use DirecTV, Dish or Comcast specialty buttons. For my receiver, I need to use additional buttons, but there is no free button in the virtual remote app to assign this function or any other one you want to use. And since the harmony link can learn commands, you would expect the virtual remote would provide available freebie buttons to use the way you want them to be used. Unfortunately, this feature is not provided.
3. Customer support is probably worse than the phone company technical support.
Summary - go get the Harmony 700 which does more than this disappointment.
My wife and I use the iPhone app, along with a dedicated iPad (original first generation) and love the convenience. We have iOS 5 and 6 on our devices, and they all work really well. Occasionally the iPad has trouble loading content, but I'm not convinced this is a Logitech issue. All-in-all it's very easy to use. Currently our Link is controlling 2 AV Receivers (multiple zones), A Samsung 64" Plasma, a DirecTV receiver, an Apple TV (Generation 2), a Google TV/BluRay Player, and an XBox 360. The goal of my design was to create a system that was EASY to use by anyone, even visitors to the home, as well as creating a minimalist AV system by hiding all components in a 19" cabinet located in another room.
By combining the Harmony Link with a Logitech IR Extender system, I was able to hide all our AV equipment neatly in a server closet, out of sight. The Samsung 64" plasma display stands alone on our wall and is a very simple and clean addition to our living room.
If Logitech changes anything about this system, I would love to see them open up the platform by providing an API that would allow users to create their own custom interface for non supported platforms. Even without this change, though, I give the product a 5 star rating. I think this was my favorite electronic purchase in 2012.
