Grrr, wife said it's okay and now it's too late. Should have bought first, discussed later. Well, I can't really blame her... our 676 needs to be replaced. I hate the circular up/down/left/right arrows. It doesn't work well (676 design).
Hopefully I see a similar deal again soon.

I've had this remote for about 3 months now and after learning how to circumvent it's shortcomings, it's awesome.
Now to clarify some things that have been mentioned in this thread:
Battery Life: Using it heavily every day in my living room home theater, I got 3 months out of the included cheap batteries. I've only switched batteries once since I've had mine and have the first set of rechargeables in it now.
Software: The online setup that Logitech wants you to use is extremely limiting. It allows very little in the way of customization. However, there is an older software package that you can download that gives you full control of the remote and allows you to do all kinds of neat things. For instance, I have some of my equipment on a "green" power strip that doesn't switch the power on for my devices until after it senses that my receiver is on. With the downloadable software I can easily set things like turn-on delays and custom turn-on scripts that handle the delay that my green power strip has. Just look on Logitech's web site for Logitech Harmony Remote Software 7.
Device Limit: There are two ways to overcome the device limit. You can either have a different remote that supports more devices, and "upgrade" from that remote,
OR (and this is the important one)
You can have the remote manually memorize the commands to additional devices. You do this by selecting an existing device such as your TV, then select "learn infrared comands", and at the bottom you can have it learn a custom command, where you point your additional device remote at the harmony remote and it learns the command. This way you can enter commands from something like a blu-ray player, DVR or old VCR, and the remote thinks it's really a TV command so it doesn't count as an extra device.
So all in all, it's a pretty nice device once you get it set up. There is a bit of a delay sometimes when pressing some of the buttons, but that would be my only minor complaint.

Set up mine last night, works great for my bedroom where there's only 3 devices.
I have a 650 in the living room with exactly 5 devices, darn you Logitech and your limits.
