4 out of 5 eggsmy first NUC

Pros: works well under heavy stress, quiet, tiny, reasonable quite modest graphics ( Intel 4000 ) . very fast reboot from Intel utility. use as desktop or place in corner of room and access by remote access using the wireless. reasonable power from the I5 CPU. The modern video that also do sound ports are great.

Cons: You need to preorder adapters for the graphics or in a pinch buy after the fact from the local Radio Shack.
This model is obsolete. Only buy at big discount. Otherwise buy the just coming out Gigabyte BRIX or better with the IRIS 5200 Intel Graphics which ABSOLUTELY KILL this ones 4000 Graphics. Also its I7 4770R CPU not only kills this ones I5 CPU but also kills the I7-4770K CPU

Other Thoughts: We have two of them and they both work well. Heavy stress does not upset them. The second has better graphics being Intel 5000. Against that we just put together a budget I3-4130 with Intel 4400 graphics. It is faster & cheaper and the case is not that MUCH bigger but hardly Tiny. We would build another with the I7-4770K but the specs of the I7-4770R are much better so we will wait.

5 out of 5 eggsmy first NUC

Pros: Works without fault under heavy stress out of box. Tiny. Great as desktop or put in a corner somewhere and access by Remote Access using the wireless connection. Very quiet, no issues, reboots in a few seconds from Intel software, runs 8.1 really well. I am impressed with the modern video connections you need to buy first off.

Cons: The holder for the memory is delicate and will easily break but still function. Take particular care. Buy the connecting adapters first for the video. In a pinch at higher price visit radio shack which has them all. Only buy at a heavy discount as it does NOT have IRIS 5200 graphics which totally kills this ones 4000. Also the new Brix from Gigabyte with IRIS 5200 has the I7-4770R which not only kills this one's I5 cpu but also the I7-4770K. See Anandtech.com.

Other Thoughts: Would not buy again because superior graphics have come out. I wanted it as a small desktop.Still it works very well and has other uses. I also have the newer NUC with graphics 5000 and it works well too including under also heavy stress. I wish my ATX computers were as problem free as this baby!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat consumer desktop

Pros: Enough power for most needs. Runs Windows 7 without a hitch. Small enough to fit in carry-on luggage or a purse for portability. Nearly silent. Installation of RAM and SSD was easy. As long as you're not gaming, the integrated graphics are probably good enough.

Cons: Only 3 USB ports (2x USB2 + 1xUSB3) means you'll probably need a USB hub, particularly since it only fits an SSD internally which means you're going to want an external drive for more serious storage needs.
WiFi adapter is not built in (although there is an antenna which can be attached to an internal PCIe adaptor) so if that's important to you, you'll need to get that separately.
Very surprised to find out it doesn't come with a power cord to go from the brick to the wall. Something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812196313 will do the trick but you need to remember to order it.

Other Thoughts: Once you put the whole thing together it's a bit on the expensive side for a low-power system. If you don't need the portability there are cheaper solutions out there.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Little Box

Pros: Small form factor.
Barebones base system that you *must* customize.
Quiet. I mean really quiet.

My main SOHO Linux server had a massive crash. ( Aging Hardware, bad line filter, both raided drives failed at the same time when we lost power.)

I was going to build a small silent PC to run CentOS so my larger box could be used 100% for R&D work.

So I had to run out and build a box ASAP.
This fit the bill.
I opted for a 256 GB mSata drive, and only 8GB of memory. (Since this was a stop gap measure, I wanted to keep the price down a bit.)

Took it home. Laughed at the box when you opened it. (I'm saving it ;-) And built the system quickly. I had an ISO Centos on a thumb drive, everything came up without a hitch. Used Webmin to build out the rest.

When you need something fast and with less headaches in an emergency build, this worked out well. Its been sitting on my bookshelf for 120+ days and no hiccups.

Cons: No power code.
No i7 option.
Limited expandability.

Other Thoughts: Again this was an emergency build, needed my DNS and mail server up and running ASAP.

While Intel does sell the board and full kit as two separate options, it would be nice if there were some more options like 2 SATA III ports and an i7. While the NUC isn't totally passive, its really, really quiet. There are case manufacturers like Streacom who are introducing 100% Aluminum passive cases. (The NUC model has an acrylic side so that you can use the embedded wi-fi option. ) With a slightly larger case, and the option for 2 SATA drives, you could allow for RAID 0,1 and still keep a small form factor for a quiet box. (Even use it in a NAS box.)

The reason I gave this 4 stars is for the lack of a power cord and the lack of some upper expandability.

4 out of 5 eggsMakes a nice SOHO Linux server

Pros: -- Very small footprint.
-- Silent.
-- Bare bones system.
-- Easy to build out.
-- No problems installing CentOS v 6.

I bought this because I had a hard crash on my old linux box that I was using as DNS, Mail, and Web Server for my SOHO. (Didn't have time to think, needed it ASAP. ) [Went to local store, sorry NewEgg, ]

Got the i5, 8GB memory, and 256GB mSata. (Not ideal but like I said, I was short on time.)

Put it together and booted it from a spare Centos ISO I had burned to a thumb drive. Got DNS and mail up that night.

Cons: No power cord.
(I can understand because they probably ship this around the world. )
[This is why its only 4 stars and not 5]

No i7 option.

No expandability.

Other Thoughts: Its currently sitting on a book shelf and :
"System uptime 126 days, 10 hours, 14 minutes"
Don't even know its there.

While this is a stopgap solution. It does the job and I will keep it for my secondary DNS/Mail server.

Just think. This 'toy' is doing the same work load that I had running on 3 4U servers that I had built over 15 years ago...

3 out of 5 eggsVery nice, with some issues.

Pros: Very small form factor, with good power. 16GB RAM allows for a lot of uses. In my case, I made it a home hypervisor system for testing.

vPro remote console management is a feature that should be included in all of models, it's a very useful feature.

Cons: vPro Management is overly complicated, and requires commercial software which is not included.

Inexplicably, intel does not include a power cord with this system. The power brick is included, and it has a relatively rare connector. It took some searching at several local retailers to find one available for purchase.

Newegg should bundle a power cord, or at least strongly suggest one with purchase, to account for intel's stupidity on this one.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel BOXDC53427HYE

Pros: Very quiet, compact, and fast.

Cons: - Doesn't include the needed power cord.
- Max memory is only 16GB, would be nice if it was 32GB for my usage.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of the i5 NUC's to be used in my VMware ESXi 5 home lab and they perform great. The only exception is that you need to load the correct NIC drivers into the esxi ISO file as the NIC drivers are not already included in ESXi 5.

Purchased:

N82E16820231582 - G.SKILL 16GB (2 x 8GB)

SanDisk Cruze Fit 8GB USB flash drive (install esxi on)

Very happy with the setup. Able to upgrade my home lab to something a bit more powerful while using very little power.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel NUC Kit DC53427HYE

Pros: -A very small footprint.
-Quiet.
-Intel's 3rd Generation Core i5 processor 3427U and QS77 Express chipset.
-USB 3.0 x1
-USB 2.0 x2
-HDMI 1.4a x1
-Mini-Displayport 1.1a x2
-Supporting triple independent display capability.

Cons: None from what I've seen so far.

Other Thoughts: Wow! This thing is small. And the components that go in it are unbelievably small. Really, I've seen packs of gum that were larger than the mSATA SSD or the wireless card!

Just like the previous review, I'm writing to list the parts I used in this build since they all appear to be compatible. I thoroughly read Intel's component suggestions and only deviated a little. So far everything is up and running fine. I'm writing this review from the computer.

N82E16823126097 Logitech MK120 Black USB Wired Slim Desktop

Now as mentioned in the previous review and on Intel's website, make sure you purchase a power adapter to wall cord. Even if you don't purchase the StarTech model I got, check out the picture on Newegg and make sure the one you have or get, has the "cloverleaf" connector on the end. I looked around my house before buying and found 9 computer cords but NONE of them had that end.

I saw Intel had Kingston's KVR16S11/8 listed as compatible memory. But after looking through Newegg I found Kingston's KHX16LS9P1K2/16. A very nice "matched" pair of DDR3 1600 MHz modules running on the lower 1.35V and CL9, which Intel says the board will handle.

After I loaded Win 7 on the system I noticed it didn't recognize the LAN card or the wireless adapter. It said they were there, but listed them as "Generic". Now, I know that can be typical so I used my laptop and downloaded Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 7 from Intel's website. Put it on the USB drive and loaded it on the system. As soon as I rebooted, it recognized the card and as soon as I loaded my wireless password I was up and running.

I have been adding memory, changing out hard drives, and the occasional tired PS or CD burner on my computers over the years. But I have to admit I have never assembled anything with parts quite that small. I just went about it like any other and within 30 minutes I had it all assembled. It went together much easier than I initially thought it would.

I used Daemon Tools Pro to make an ISO file of the Win 7 that I purchased. Then I used Microsoft's program (Google "Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool") to put it on a USB drive so I could boot the new system. I know there's many, many ways out there to do it. I'm just mentioning what worked for me.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, compact, and quiet PC. Good enough for a desktop replacement or a server without the need for all the desk space. Appears to be fully supported in Windows 7 and Ubuntu Precise LTS 12.04.

Very easy to assemble.

The free screwdriver included at the time I purchased the NUC is rather cool in itself.

Cons: External power supply. Part of the reason the NUC is so small is that it has yet another power brick to add to your collection.

Does not include the power cord, so be sure to spend a few extra dollars when you order to get the cord.

Other Thoughts: Part of the reason for the reviewing this is for me to list the parts I bought since they all appear to be compatible. Intel also has some info on their website of compatible parts.
