Flawless  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This interface took me almost 3 weeks to work it out. The challenge for me was how to allow it in my router, but after I worked it out it is perfect! I used this interface with my Yaesu FT-400 XDR and it works flawless. This interface even works with FT-8900 and FT-2900R.

Failure   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The wires x servers need to be handed over to amateurs. Yeasu should not be running this system. There are problems with the system. Messaging sometimes works, sometimes sends the same message multiple times. Everything is intermittent. I was surprised you have to take it apart and flip a switch to update the firmware. It reminded me of the 1990s. Windows only software is a disaster. Nodes won't run for more than a few days before the software hangs up. This is a digital system, We should be able to type in someone's call sign and have it tell us what room she is In. It should be able to tell us who is currently in a room, all right on your radio. Fusion is turning out to be a disappointing experiment.

So far I can find nothing to complain about. Hardware and software is easy to setup, all cables are included. Audio is great, it works reliably. Everything was Plug and Play, even the ports on my router were fully configured by the software!
