4 out of 5 eggsAlmost a full product

Pros: Small form-factor. Good power to price ratio. Has SATA for HDD. 2x Mini-PCI sockets to add WiFi or Bluetooth Antennae connections for WiFi already in case.

Cons: My kits did not include the power cable that connects to the wall wart. ...Really Intel?

Other Thoughts: As expected it had a micro HDMI port for the display and since this not not really a standard adapter one might have laying around, we had to order adapters accordingly. It would have been nice to have a C to A adapter included per kit, but whatever. At least I knew it going in by reading the specs. What really burns me is that I did not expect to have to order a power cord. This was a pretty big set back since there is no place locally to order this type of cord. When someone orders a $380 piece of electronics they kind of expect a power cord.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat system... maybe?

Pros: Looks nice. Converts A/C to heat.

Cons: I was not looking forward to the digging-in-and-finding-the-right-memory game, and noticed the "May we recommend" on the bottom of the page. "Oh," I said to myself, "How nice of NewEgg! They're showing me the compatible RAM!" So I bought it. And, well, it's my fault -- I shouldn't have trusted something that convenient. But you guessed it: wrong voltage. Now I gotta RMA it, and pay restocking fee, blah, blah, blah. Bottom line: no, you may *NOT* recommend it. If you wanna recommend a USB keyboard or a mouse or a 2.5" SATA SSD, please go for it -- that stuff is usually pretty obvious. But please do *NOT* recommend memory unless you're certain it's the *RIGHT* memory.

Other Thoughts: 'Nuff said.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall but Mighty

Pros: Excellent form factor, low power consumption, easy to set up. The BIOS is very easy to use.

Cons: A small criticism of the platform is that I wish it had a second Ethernet port for my use case (Vmware ESXi 5.5).

Other Thoughts: I purchased the NUC, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB drive to replace an old HP DL360G5 server running Vmware ESXi. The server was loud and drew over 200 watts.

Other than one small issue with getting VMWARE ESXi 5.5 to consistently boot from a USB flash drive (related to vmware's boot installer) the NUC was flawless.

The NUC now sits on top of my Synology DS411+II and runs my whole home network and lab drawing about 20% of the power the DL360 with no noticeable fan noise. The DL360 sounded like a jet engine.

3 out of 5 eggsUPDATE of previous review

Pros: Update to previous review.

Cons: Update to previous review.

Other Thoughts: Newegg stepped up to the plate and is replacing my unit even though it was just past the 30 day warranty period. Thank you Newegg! That's the customer service I have known and that keeps me coming back to Newegg. Note: I work on the road and got caught on an extended job and did not make it home until the 30 day return period was nearly up. By the time I could get to the NUC to find out it was defective, my 30 days were up.

1 out of 5 eggsI got a bad one...

Pros: Junk, will not load win 7 OS.

Cons: Well, Mine does not work so...

Other Thoughts: ...But read the blogs, so have many others. I work on the road and did not discover the unit was bad until the 30 day return period had expired and now Newegg will not take it back.

This thing will not load win 7 OS to any hard drive. Tried SSD, mSATA, even a spinner. nothing. I updated the BIOS, combed the Intel website and blogs for help, nothing. Re-partioned all drives, made sure they were MBR partitions, did everything I could think of or find instrution to perform. Nothing. At this point I assume it was a bad unit. OS image loaded to another computer with one of the same drives installed.

One star because I had to in order to upload the review. Really zero stars.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: This little Nuc is surprisingly fast for such a little computer . Of course, 16 gigs of ram helps a lot. I' heard the graphics were a bit weak, but if you up the video ram in the bios, you get decent performance. Also, I was quite pleased with how quiet it is. I have to put my ear up to it to hear it.

Cons: Intel provides very little documentation. You'll need to research information online.

Other Thoughts: One very important note. You must upgrade bios or any OS will fail to boot. I installed the included Linux Mint on flash drive provided by Intel. A careful scan of what little info Intel does provide finally clued me in after hours trying to find what was wrong. It had version 21 and after updating the bios to version 26, I reinstalled the OS and it worked fine.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazingly small, surpisingly powerful

Pros: Compact, Core i5, Supports mSATA solid state drives, 16GB Ram and regular laptop drives. Works great with intel's dual band wireless AC with Bluetooth (allows wireless keyboard and mice w/o using a usb port for a dongle) Low power consumption, Display port and HDMI

Cons: only 4 usb ports, USB attached cd/dvd drives for installing windows require that UEFI be turned off, internal SATA port works fine with UEFI on (I prefer UEFI off anyway)

Other Thoughts: Used as PC, business workstations, Remote Access Server, Rig control and audio processing for Amateur Radio, and a media presentation platform. Solid reliability. Installing the intel wireless adapter with Bluetooth allows BT keyboard and mouse keeping the USB ports available for other devices. I also use SSD as a main drive and the mechanical drive in the drive bay for windows Y automatic disk images and backups.

4 out of 5 eggsIntel NUC 4th Gen Core i5 4250

Pros: It is small and quiet. It really is small... you will be surprised no matter what you imagined from the internet picture. Very reliable so far and I have good trust in Intel motherboard, especially when my shuttle barebone system died twice on me (yes, I am fan of small PCs). Giving option for HDMI, speaker jack, 2.5inch HDD availability is nice. I did not buy this for gaming so.... not much of criticism for graphic capability - HDMI supports full 1080 by the way. The packaging is awesome - you will know what I mean when you buy one and open the box.

Cons: (0) Being small is good but... too small. Make it hard to do anything, including just opening for installing memory sticks. It can be little bit bigger even for air circulation (1) CPU is somewhat fast and reliable but seems to be slower than similar desktop tower CPU (2) Wish mini DP & HDMI ports are full size (3) Speaker jack is on front only, unless you have monitor with built-in speaker by HDMI (I do....) (4) Installing drivers with Win 7 Home SP1 was a bit disappointing. It worked after all but I had to go to Intel support web to get drivers updated for almost everything in order to make all parts to work properly. (5) built in bluetooth might have been a nice addition since you do not want to connect bulky wired keyboard and mouse

Other Thoughts: It sounded little cheesy when I realized Intel is calling this as Next Unit of Computing. After using for a month, I think this actually make sense. It is small and (almost) as powerful as bulky desktop, and very very energy efficient. You will pay ~$100 more (including a copy of Win 7) compared to Dell Desktop at the similar spec. But I was OK with the extra spending for its style.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Cram-packed with features for its size, well built, well designed.

Cons: UEFI BIOS still needs polish. (even after rev 25 dated March 3, 2014).

Other Thoughts: I have been using this for almost 2 months, mounted on the back of an Asus 24" 1920x1200 IPS monitor, and could not be more pleased with every aspect of it.

If you connect to a monitor via HDMI, and use the HDMI audio (either thru the monitor's speakers or the monitor's audio out), plugging a headphone into the NUC front panel headphone jack, kills the HDMI audio, and sends audio to the Headphone jack. Nice.

I configured mine:
win 8.1 pro 64 bit
Samsung 840 Evo 250GB mSATA Item # N82E16820147316
WD Blue 1TB 2.5" HDD item # N82E16822236496
G.Skill RipJaws 16GB RAM item # N82E16820231705
Intel 7260 892.11AC & Bluetooth Wi-Fi card item # N82E16833106190

Streaming 3 feeds of HD security cam video, while editing 16MP photos with an internet browser running performs very well.

I have not noticed any fan noise, but I don't have it in a dead quiet room either.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective - RMA

Pros: Booted and ran on mSATA great.
Great form factor.
Fast and responsive using SSD.
Low power draw.

Honestly, using this with an SSD, you will love it.

Cons: Now that I have received my RMA, I can state the first one I received was "used". New one is shrink wrapped, unlike the one I returned. System booted and ran fine, right up until I added the 2.5 inch laptop drive. Could do a quick format on the drive, but after 5 minutes, any attempt to access drive hung the system. Returned the NUC, and meanwhile ordered another with 2 day shipping from another vendor. That allowed me to find out that not only was the NUC defective, but the laptop hard drive as well. Unusual, in aproximately 10 years of ordering from Newegg, only two items previously were defective, now two in one order.

Other Thoughts: Using this with Windows 7 home premium (N82E16832116986), Intel 7260 AC/Bluetooth (N82E16833106190), Gskill memory (N82E16820231703), Crucial 240gb mSATA (N82E16820148698). Added a "standard" USB keyboard and mouse (N82E16823126097), a USB DVD drive (N82E16827190021), and added a HGST 1.5 tb laptop drive. This system will replace an old XP system for my sister, and added a new Asus monitor (N82E16824236358). I liked it enough I'm ordering another for myself! I did waste a lot of time (2 weeks) troubleshooting defective parts, hopefully that won't happen again. System is ready to go and got shipped 2 days before RMA arrived, hopefully now I can continue my relatively trouble free ordering experience with Newegg.
