5 out of 5 eggsBest HTPC

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Extremely easy to build, quiet and very fast. Build with 8gb ram and 840 EVO. Win7 is fine.

Cons: Make sure you have OS installation on USB stick before buy and save yourself some time.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't really cut it.

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Small form factor. Easy to add memory, hard drive...

Cons: USB ports don't work with wireless devices well - keyboards / mouse. Case interferes with transmission requiring extension cable.

Fan comes on too much is has high pitch whine.

Case is solid metal and built in antennae has poor wireless and blutooth range.

Should have full size display port and hdmi port.

Other Thoughts: I brought this as a PC for the TV and it works adequately for that, but could be so much better.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent tiny computer

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Small, quiet, fast. Lots of usb ports, hdmi, and displayport.

Cons: Not silent since it has a fan, and can get slightly loud on high load. It would be awesome to see a fanless broadwell version of this.
Only has a single combo 3.5mm jack for audio.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to get at least 8GB of ram. Originally using only 4GB felt a bit laggy.
Would like to see intel bring back the thunderbolt port or get usb4.0 when it comes out

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent media computer with slight gaming capabilities

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: small footprint, good looking, 4 USB3 ports, some overclocking capabilities (see details)

Cons: no voltage adjustment controls, automatic memory settings are unstable at 2133 speeds, hardware revisions prior to -104 have SATA drive detection issues with some drives

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent NUC for those who need transcoding capabilities in their media PCs or who like a high end office PC with slight gaming support. For those who like to tinker, there is a slight "overclock" capability. You can do two things there:
1) You can buy fast RAM (such as F3-2133C11D-16GRSL) and then manually set it up to run at 1866 with the following timings: tAA: 10, tRCD: 10, tRP: 10, tRAS: 29, tCK: 1, tRRD: 5, tRC: 38, tRFC: 249, tWR: 14, tWTR: 7, tRTP: 7, tFAW: 25. This will give you over 17GB/sec bandwidth
2) You can increase the TDP from 25W short burst / 15W steady to 35W short burst / 31W steady along with an increase in max current to 42A. This will increase your 3d Mark 11 score from ~1200 to ~1700 or about 40% increase due to 50% increase in graphics capabilities. This chip (HD 5000) has 40 cores and with 15W total to be shared with the CPU it has not enough power to fully utilize those 40 cores. By raising the limit you allow those cores to run at full speed rather than be throttled, while still allowing safe temperatures (<80C) at the expense of a much louder fan.

1 out of 5 eggsNot all its cracked up to be!!!

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: USFF-ultra small form factor
Low power consumption
Intel*-see caveat
dual monitor support

Cons: I/O-need mini hdmi or mini display port to connect to monitor- also doesn't play nicely with DP conversions to VGA or DVI
Known HDD issues

Other Thoughts: I purchased this NUC for a customer to replace their old internet browsing machine in their house. I have lots of experience with the form factor-mini ITX and these USFF cases are my Jam, but for intel to release such a low quality build with this SKU really surprised me. First of all, no matter what I plugged into the thing, it WOULD NOT recognize a 2.5HDD. The SATA power and data connection is horribly integrated. whoever decided on that card should be fired. WHAT HAPPENED INTEL? YOU USED TO MAKE THE BEST GEAR!!! Now I have to wait another week to put the machine together! If you cant use the thing like a computer its not a Next Unit of Computing.
Thanks NEWEGG!

4 out of 5 eggsUSB Port issues

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Nice Design, Small form factor, Easy to work with except 2.4Ghz wireless.

Cons: Beware if you are planning on using external wireless devices on 2.4Ghz. The USB ports create noise on the 2.4Ghz range. I tried plugging in dongles for wireless keyboard and WiFi. Neither would work. After burning a bunch of time troubleshooting I found an article from Intel acknowledging and describing the issue. Fix is to use usb extension cable to get dongles away from chassis. THERE SHOULD BE A NOTICE INCLUDED IN THE BOX INTEL!! DONT WASTE MY TIME!!!!!

Other Thoughts: Despite this issue I really like the machine.

5 out of 5 eggsNearly perfect

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Small, fast, quiet, adequate I/O
Windows 7 64 bit works well.

Cons: Not much of a con, but I tried to update the BIOS with a 32GB USB stick, but the device was not recognized. I copied the BIOS to a smaller 128MB stick and it worked perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I had some issues with the network controller, but they were fixed with a winsock reset.

Be careful removing the 2.5" tray; I followed the instructions and ended up disconnecting the SATA power cable from the motherboard. Check the SATA cables before replacing the tray.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: I love these things. Super easy to put together, rock solid stable, low power consumption, yet still powerful

Cons: Wish it came in a 24VDC power supply option so I can tie it directly to my DC battery system

Other Thoughts: I've deployed about 5 of these in various control rooms in industrial applications. They work great, very stable, and don't take up much space, which is nice for offshore platforms.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Solution, But Some Gripes

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: - Decent performance
- Low price
- Can use standard 2.5" HDs (!!)
- Can drive 4k monitor
- Upgradeable (to some extent)
- Lots of features too numerous to list here (such as built-in IR sensor, Wifi Antenna, Headphone & MICROPHONE jack, gigabit ethernet, two internal USB, dual channel RAM)
- Low power - Anandtech says it's < 28 watts under load!
- 4 USB ports
-Robust design, keeps cool, sturdy
-Includes a power cord (Not sure what that other user was talking about)

Cons: - Driver issues

1. Default bios settings wont boot - this is takes 2 seconds to fix but another user mentioned it so I thought I'd verify it. BIOS is intuitive and easy to work

2. Windows 7 didn't have LAN drivers or drivers for my Intel WiFi card (not included). This wasn't a huge deal but just remember that having a Win7 install on a USB stick will not get you up and running. Reminds me of the days of XP where I'd lose my LAN driver and didn't have access to a 2nd rig to get one (tears ensued). This was made an even greater bugaboo because of #3:

3. No drivers included - Come on intel, even a $0.25 USB stick with SOME drivers would've been nice

- 1.35volt RAM - less ubiquitous, I'm told, than 1.5 volt - REMEMBER TO GET THE RIGHT RAM. Another user here on newegg took a star or two off because they apparently broke the thing by using the wrong RAM (my sympathy meter is reading at 0% for this person). See my setup below

- No Built-in WiFi - would've been nice to free up one of the two PCIe slots and not have to pay $25 for 802.11ac card

- No eSATA - Newegg specs says there is... I don't have any eSATA devices but I'm sad I don't have it.

- Mini HDMI - required $10 adapter ... sadface

- The gimicky Intel jingle circuit in the packaging didn't work when I got it (Considering RMA; this is an outrage)

Other Thoughts: My Setup:

8GB RAM in two 4gb Crucial sticks DDR3-1600 #N82E16820191523
120GB 2.5" SATAIII Mushkin SSD #N82E16820226424
Intel 802.11AC/BlueTooth adapter (7260HMW) #9SIA24G2179255
StarTech MiniHDMI - > regular HDMI adapter #N82E16882158100
Phillips 42" TV
Windows 7

My long PCIe slot is unused.


Couple of random thoughts:

- Since this thing DOES include Intel SRT, what might be a cool thing to do would be to throw in a 64GB mSATA drive AND a high capacity 2.5" platter drive for a great media-center type deal.

- I'm using this with a wireless keyboard and mouse for something like a media center PC. With its IR sensor this makes a great solution.

- Make sure to install ALL the latest drivers. Intel has a bundle on their website for D54250WYK (no H) which is the mobo this uses
