4 out of 5 eggsA keeper for a 1080p HTPC! Skip 5th gen units if that is the intended use

Pros: Bought this 4th gen NUC and not the 5th since I already had a spare mSATA drive and for the task in hand was plenty to stick to this older gen even with an i3 processor

Tiny footprint, silent and low power consumption as an HTPC. Yes silent even recording two simultaneous 1089i HD streams. Also serves as media server for the home.

Setup has:
1 TB 7200 RPM 2.5" drive as media storage
250 GB mSATA drive for system and applications (and overkill but I had the drive)
Intel 7260 ac/Bluetooth wireless adapter
Windows 8.1 with Media Center
An old windows media center remote I'm replacing with a Harmony remote

Having this 4400 Intel chipset is plenty for HD video at 1080p. I don't think I will upgrade to a 4K TV until there is enough content OTA and on cable to justify the newer chips. 4K or above will take in my opinion about 4-5 years until it's really, really mainstream.

Downloaded the latest drivers and BIOS from Intel so hopefully gripes reported by owners dating over a year ago are taken care of by now.

Cons: Not cheap but it serves the purpose.
I'm expecting this to last at least 4 years.
Not giving 5 stars since the first one I ordered arrived DOA. After a session on the phone with Intel where I troubleshooted it, they said the first unit was defective

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a Windows HTPC this is your unit. Skip the 5th gen which are:
1. More expensive
2. Require M.2 SATA drives that for now are not particularly abundant or priced reasonably when compared to m.SATA
3. The improved graphics do absolutely nothing for TV purposes.

I don't think I will even try this unit for gaming. No point. I think this unit would be a great screen mounted desktop PC for everything but gaming.

2 out of 5 eggsFor Windows8 and nothing else

Pros: Small footprint, virtually no noise, and very low power usage. Great for an office environment because there is very little inside to go wrong.

Cons: Don't even try to run anything but Windows8 on this box. Intel finally put out Windows7 drivers because of user complaints, but don't expect them to work as well as the Windows8 drivers.
Don't try to put windows server on the NUC. Don't try and run Linux on the NUC.

This box is great for an office machine. I would not use it for any other applications that are CPU or graphics intensive. It it grossly underpowered despite what some people might say.

Intel is only concerned with Windows8 on the NUC. Everything else gets ignored.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall Full Computer

Pros: This thing is small. Ridiculously small. It is a full computer in a small box. Well built. All you need is a HD and Ram and you ready to go. Powerful enough to replace a desktop for everyday use. It takes mSata drive and a 2.5 HD. HDMI and Display port. Runs cool and uses a fraction of the power of a full tower. Decent intel graphics.

Box has the intel jingle when opened.

Cons: Have runned into any problems as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I put in 8gb of ram, a 128 mSata SSD, and a 500GB HD. This thing rocks. I use this computer strictly for work. Replace the bulky computer I had and performs better. Installed windows 7 pro with no problems. From start to finish was flawless and quick.

3 out of 5 eggsMake sure you really want this!

Pros: - This unit is very well made, and easy for a beginner to set up
- The ultra small footprint is what you are paying for
- Perfect for HTPC, except the remote control issue

Cons: By the time you have added memory, a WiFi, and some disk solution, this is NOT an inexpensive choice for a media player. Capable, yes, but cheap, no.

I could not get the IR working under Linux, despite others having reported doing this. It is possible that mine is defective, but more likely the current BIOS is not compatible with the existing Linux solutions. Beware that setting up the IR is not straightforward.

The cardboard box makes you listen to the intel jingle while you are unpacking it. You read that right.

There is no SPDIF output

Other Thoughts: Intel seems to have invented their own BIOS for these, and those familiar with other "Standard" BIOS will want to get familiar with it.

Given that the integrated IR receiver was the deal clincher for me, I am not happy with the outcome here. Those running windows on it may be luckier, but I won't be buying any more of these.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid HTPC

Pros: Small. To be honest this is the main reason I bought it instead of building a custom rig. Space was kind of at a premium.

As far as performance goes, it boots up really fast (with SDD), no problems with online streaming. It can stream full HD movies and the likes over network with no problem. I also use it as an old school game console emulator. thus far everything runs perfectly smooth and I have no complaints. I have a few various indie games off steam without a problem. I have even used their streaming service to successfully play tf2 on it. Haven't tried to run it natively so I can't comment there.

Cons: Ethernet drivers aren't natively supported by windows 7 so I had to download them on another computer and install them via flash drive. Oh well. Could be worse. Some people have complained about problem with driver support for windows 7. I haven't had any issues although to be fair the drivers were very recent so its possible the new drivers fixed their problem.

Only other complaint was the SSD was a little bit difficult to mount. The connector is buried and has to be installed blindly. First time I installed it the SATA connector wasn't fully seated an I had to take it apart and try again. It works fine now though.

Other Thoughts: running windows 7 Pro
samsung EVO 840 SSD

Don't forget that this uses mini HDMI and not a standard HDMI cable.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, not not powerful

Pros: I have purchased both the i5 and i3 versions (using an SSD with the i5 and a HDD with the i3). In the case of the i5 we wanted something that could be put on a moving track and deal with the shock of sudden starts and stops (hence the SSD) and take up almost no space (hence the NUC).

In the other case we have someone who works at home and needed a computer that she could easily unplug and bring in (and didn't want a laptop). For office tasks the i3 works fine with a hard drive.

In both cases we are pleased. The i5 with the SSD is strong enough to be used for other tasks. The fact that they are so compact is more useful than I'd at first thought.

Cons: This is really more about expectations than negatives: There are low-power i3 and i5 chips and they are nowhere near as powerful as the regular desktop versions are.

Other Thoughts: This is really a case of not knowing how useful something will be until you have it (at least it was for me). The first one was purchased specifically because I needed a small unit (without curves, nothing like the Zotac Sphere) so it was easy to mount and dismount.

But after I had it a couple of weeks, I started thinking of other uses for it. Case in point: The employee mentioned above who works at home and has computer problems and can't lug the mini-tower she had back and forth. She needs a large screen, and didn't want a laptop (and I didn't have the budget for it). So for under $400, I made this for her. It's less than 1.5 pounds, sits on her table, and it's easy as hell for her to unplug all of the connectors, put in her bag and bring in. (I keep an extra PSU here so that can stay at home.)

Now other people are finding cases where this will work well for them and it has enough horsepower for most tasks. I tried that with an Atom chip a couple of years ago and it just wasn't quite good enough. But this is.

4 out of 5 eggsmini-HDMI, antenna cable covers

Pros: Speed
Newegg deal came with RAM

Makes a great HTPC

Cons: Expensive once you add all your parts.
Included directions are bad.

Other Thoughts: mini-HDMI port (type C) on back, not the original HDMI (type A) port. Make sure you have the right cable.

If adding a WIFI card, the antenna cables inside have rubber boots over the connectors and are also taped. Remove the tape first, then slide the boots down, towards the source of the cables, not up and over the connectors. I accidentally pulled by connector off. I was able to re-crimp it back on. Also, you will need needle-nose pliers to hold the cable in place, and another tool (other needle-nose) to push the connector in.

Everything is super tiny, take your time and try to use precision tools.

I would recommend using wired ethernet if at all possible.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall HTPC has it all

Pros: Extra small form factor: ~ 4" x 4" x 2.5"
HD4400 Graphics are great for video viewing
mSATA SSD and a 1TB HDD fit
Idles at 8w, sleeps at 1w, watching TV at 15w

Cons: Pricey after adding ram, msata, HDD, wireless card and Win 8.1 Pro with MC. Can't afford another one unless I sell some stuff.

Other Thoughts: Installed Win 8 Pro on a USB 3.0 flash drive in 10 minutes. Getting all the windows updates and the 8.1 upgrade and recent update and then installing drivers and Media Center took much longer. But it was worth it - this does everything my full ATX size HTPC did while consuming less than a quarter of the electricity. The early July 2014 drivers from Intel have not given me any problems. The optional 7260 AC wireless card streams HD video really well one room away, but not 2 rooms away from my 300-N access point. I couldn't be happier with this "baby box".

8gb DDR3L G.SKILL Ripjaws 1600-9
120gb Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD
1TB WD AV-25 HDD for video/recorded TV
Intel 7260 AC wireless card
Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center

4 out of 5 eggsVery happy

Pros: Using as PLEX Home Theater client running modified Windows 7 64bit image. Hardware Intel 525 mSATA 30GB SSD, Intel 7260HMW WIFI/Bluetooth combo, Crucial 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 1600 RAM, and Harmony One remote. I have modified Windows 7 to boot directly into Plex Home Theater, it boots in under 10 seconds. Has been able to handle any video/audio format I have been able to throw at it. Very happy with my purchase.

Cons: Mini PCI-Express cables for Wifi/Bluetooth were labeled backwards. Intel 7260HMW didn't detect Bluetooth until I found an article telling me to swap the +/- and then everything started working great. Seems shutdown or enter some sort of sleep when my LED television is switched to another input. Have tried tweaking all BIOS and Windows 7 settings but still does same thing. Fortunately with Intel SSD it boots in under 10 seconds so its not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: Box makes Intel dinging sound when you open it. They could of knocked off $20 and removed this useless feature and made me much happier.

3 out of 5 eggsmSATA heat issue dissappointing

Pros: Perfect platform for hosting my HTPC server solution. Wanted to replace an HP Server class desktop running Win 8.1 that couldn't pass the Digital Cable Assistant CableCard tests.

This unit does and with the 16 GiB of DDR3 installed, 102 GiB mSATA OS drive and a backup WD-Blue 1 TB data store with the i3 core, has the performance and functionality I want as I move to replace 4 XBox 360 extenders with lower cost clients running XBMC (Android or x86).

Cons: CIR didn't work with my MCE Rosewell controller until installing the 7/1/2014 driver bundle from Intel. It works now, for the most part (sleep function seems flakey, but not a big deal to me)

In the two days I have had the NUC, I have yet been able to run it more than 30 minutes due to what I understand is the mSATA heat issue.

I am now trying out the Intel suggested remedy of running the CPU fan at 60% duty cycle to see if this resolves the issue.

The miniHDMI connector is sort of bogus, but just a minor inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: I thought the mSATA heat issue had been resolved prior to my purchase, but I was wrong. If the fan solution doesn't fix the issue, I will have no choice but to request an RMA on the system.

In hindsight, I would forgo installing an mSATA drive and just install Win 8.1 on the 2.5 spinning disk drive or purchased an 2.5 SSD. I could just re-install to the 2.5 HDD but I am having a hassle of calling MicroSoft to prove I am not installing on a second system because I stupidly didn't de-activate my original Desktop Win 8.1 HP server prior to disassembling it.

I do like the feel of this system. I have a second big heat generating Win 8.1 server box that is managing 4 of the 6 tuner channels in my HDHomerun Prime configuration that is doing a lot of recording and streaming to the XBox360 extenders.

Would love to replace it with one of these. The first one was to manage 2 of the tuner channels and integrate with XBMC clients running either WMC clients or NextPVR clients, which I found to be the only XBMC backend to work with my HDHomerun Prime. Wanted to use Plex to get live tv to my iPad and Android devices, but more research is required on my part.

A previous reviewer captured exactly what I wanted to get with this platform, I will try to do whatever I can to make this work.
