3 out of 5 eggsNUCs to NUCs

Pros: This particular one is a good build compared to other NUCs and I have several.

Cons: Expensive and incompatible. The NUC platform is a nice idea but is both to far ahead of it's time and too far behind. Linux drivers are a real pain. Expandability is all about what intel "envisions" for you rather than what you really need. They are not great value. In may ways it's an iMac several years too late and several hundred dollars over budget.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Desktop

Pros: Possibly the most awesome purpose built desktop environment I've seen. I'm very big into smaller is better and this guy is actually velcro'ed to the back of my monitor. For desktop users, this is entirely what they would need for day to day productivity or personal use. The lack of unneeded ports and therefore the overall efficiency of design strikes the perfect balance for most uses.

Cons: I would naturally want to deploy these as desktops within a larger environment, but the barebones nature of it being a kit would make my assembly time more difficult than I would like.

Other Thoughts: This would be a great opportunity for an integrator to build and configure these machines so users could self-install.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel NUC i5

Pros: With a SSD It boots FAST
Good for light games on OK settings (Minecraft, Sims 3, ect)
USB 3.0 Ports
2 Display outs (Mini Display-Port and Mini HDMI)

Cons: Have had some Windows boot issues (would show just the Intel NUC splash screen and wouldn't continue) But just unplug the power and reboot.
Can get a little warm
The headphone jack is in the front (it bugs me a little)

Other Thoughts: I put a Crucal 128GB MSATA SSD and 8GB of Crucal RAM in it for games. Also I can record Minecraft at 30FPS using FRAPS if that is a thing that you need to do.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly as described, Excellent

Pros: Awesome features in a really small package.

Easy to assemble.

Sips power

Very quiet

Cons: Intel doesn't send somebody to your home to hold your hand so that you don't buy something without doing the slightest bit of research and write a 1 egg review based on your inability to read.

Other Thoughts: Built mine with:
G.SKILL Ripjaws 16GB (2 x 8GB) part #: F3-1600C9D-16GRSL


Intel 802.11AC + Bluetooth Wi-Fi card part #: 7260HMW

Windows 7 Pro 64

and could not be happier!
I've only heard the fan on days where it was 77 F or higher inside.

1 out of 5 eggsI got jipped!

Pros: on board standard SATA connection

Cons: I can't use an SSD inside the chassis even though INTEL has supplied the internal headers for one on the motherboard. This is because the case isn't big enough to support one.

Come to find out, INTEL later released a bigger chassis with the SAME MOTHERBOARD.

All I can say is, everyone who bought this should get the new, UPDATED CHASSIS for FREE.

Other Thoughts: I will change my rating when INTEL ships US the newer Blank Chassis. Until then, it gets one star. Everyone else should follow suit.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Ready for general use

Pros: Would be almost perfect...if it worked. USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2, decent processor, decent RAM expandability, nice small form factor.

Cons: Non-stop BIOS/display problems. This worked fine in Ubuntu, except I couldn't use the second display. After installing Windows 7 64-bit, the BIOS no longer displayed and I no longer got any output. Intel support was generally understanding, but ultimately I paid $21 (return shipping is not covered by Newegg or Intel) just to get my money back after just over a month of usage with a single monitor in Ubuntu.

My perusal of the forums suggests that many people are having issues with the display after updating to the 0025/0026 BIOS. I had also tried downgrading to an earlier version and the BIOS hangs.

I recently tried the Corei3 model, before knowing about the BIOS issue to try a different video chipset, but ultimately, it looks like the same issue with the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Really wish this had worked. Now I'm having to look at other alternatives.

On the bright side, I do have a celeron based NUC with dual HDMI that works great about 90% of the time (I once lost sound and found that changing HDMI ports fixed it for whatever reason). Pretty happy with that one overall.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed Feelings

Pros: Small, Power conservative, Easy assembly/install, low profile, low noise.

Cons: Slow to run programs.
I may just be used to Overclocked I-7's but for running off a 260gb SSD, programs just take a good long time to load up, and hang often.
Sound Issues.
I run HDMI to my LG TV and I have constant...CONSTANT sound problems...Using Window's Media Player, or other programs, I am constantly battling to have sound play correctly, if at all...YouTube, Netflix all have the same issue, and the only way I can seem to attempt to fight this is to close the program entirely and reopen it, which previously mentioned takes a lot longer than I feel it should.

Other Thoughts: I have mixed feelings about this computer. I had 2 minutes of fun assembling it, and installing and running windows on my 55" HD TV, but the main use of it as a Media PC is the biggest drawback on it, and I wish I had not made the purchase until Intel was able to produce a functional sound driver that has no flaws in HDMI.

4 out of 5 eggsHTPC

Pros: Tiny, fast and good looking. I use it as HTPC and it does the job, flawless with minimum of power. Added 1 x Crucial 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT102464BF160B
and 1 x Crucial M500 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3. No issue at all.

Cons: Fan is quit annoying, can't recomment it in the bedroom. I will convert it to a fanless solution later.

Other Thoughts: I would like to see external sata connection, buts is not a deal breaker, USB3 works fine for my Blu-Ray drive connection.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this thing

Pros: I bought it for my parents as a replacement for a 7 year old shuttle. This thing is very tiny and runs almost silent. It is also heavy enough so that it sits solid on the desk.

I was able to clone the original hard drive onto the internal ssd, and to my surprise, the computer simply booted up and ran just fine, no blue screens, no repair disks were needed. What's more, the machine now boots in about 10 seconds.

In addition to 2 mini pci slots inside, the motherboard also has both a data and a power connection for sata. I suppose if I had a sata power cable, the whole cloning affair would be much quicker (I used an external USB HD).

Searching turned out that there are now fanless aftermarket cases for the NUC, so I may actually buy one for myself as an HTPC.

I didn't buy a wireless adapter for it, but the case comes with the wifi antenna built in.

Make sure you buy 1.35v ram for it. I also had to buy an active mini-display port to DVI for the older dell monitor.

Cons: Audio jack in the front (so if you want to plug computer speakers into the box, it won't look as nice). Can't think of anything else.

Other Thoughts: I had a bad experience with a tiny system from another manufacturer a few years ago so was a bit wary of another one. I've ordered a mini-itx mobo and a mini-tower case, but after the case arrived and it was almost as big as my fractal R4. About the same time, a cooworker bought a few NUCs for his team. 2 hours later I've RMAd the original order and bought NUC instead.
