3 out of 5 eggsMake sure you really want this!

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

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

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

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
4GB G.SKILL DDR3 1600

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

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, not not powerful

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

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

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Speed
Size
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

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

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".

4 out of 5 eggsVery happy

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

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

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

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.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat hardware, bad drivers

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: I bought this NUC specifically for one single purpose, to playback encrypted premium CableCARD content through Windows Media Center using a Silicon Dust HD HomeRun Prime over my network.

I have numerous PCs in my house that handle this stream effortlessly, but a small mobile solution has been elusive. I have a few older laptops that don't have the dedicated AV hardware and slow down and stutter at times, so I wanted to get something faster but also smaller, quieter and lower power.

This NUC hit all my requirements in the hardware department. Its a great piece of hardware and this "H" version also has enough room for a full-size 2.5" drive, either mechanical or a standard 2.5" SSD.

I had no problems booting right to Windows7 Installer from a USB drive, and it did not have the latest BIOS. Overall the machine is very snappy and runs full Win7 x64 Ultimate, very impressed with the speed and design of this unit.

Once I addressed some issues with Intel's drivers (see below), the unit is working great. I have a Logitech K400 keyboard attached to it as well as a cheap Windows Remote. Although the Win remote doesn't work natively with the built-in IR, I have heard other remotes (Harmony) do.

Cons: I was not impressed at all with Intel's drivers, the initial playback was almost a dealbreaker for me as I ran into an issue I later learned was the 29/59 bug. Basically, the source signal alternates quickly between 29 and 59Hz. The Intel driver has some settings that try to treat the image and insert a white frame, but it can't do this fast enough when the framerate fluctuates so drastically, so the end result is a horribly choppy, flickering image onscreen.

I posted questions here, on another popular retailers site and Intel's NUC support forums and finally got a solid lead from the other retailer that ultimately led me to the fix. Intel's support is also terrible, there's a thread that has been ongoing for months and someone from Intel basically pops in every few weeks to say they have punted the issue for another 2-3 weeks.

So, took 1 egg off for the bug that should be disabled by default, and took another egg off for bad support by Intel. If the hardware itself wasn't so awesome, I'd give it 1-2 eggs because I was almost stuck in a situation where I would've had a paperweight that looked like a NUC.

Ultimately the fix was to disable some settings that aren't clearly labeled in Intel's graphics properties:

Video > Video Dropdown (Upper Right) > Image Enhancement > Advanced.

I had to disable both Film Mode Enhancement and Contrast Enhancement in Advanced and Skin Tone Enhancement in Basic, but the flickering and stuttering is now gone. The signal still fluctuates between 29/59 Hz but at least the Intel driver is no longer fighting it and trying to (poorly) insert its own image correction treatments.

Other Thoughts: I still try to buy from Newegg as a loyal egg customer going back to the beginning, but almost got burned in this case with Neweggs exchange only policy. If this NUC didn't do what I needed it to do and bought it specifically for, it would've been a pretty big waste. As a result, I will have to shop around a bit more in the future and look at things like return policy.

5 out of 5 eggsBeauty

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Very easy build, very quiet if not completely silent, and just the thing to replace an aging Windows Vista HTPC. Runs Ubuntu 13.10 with XBMC very well.

Cons: Intel BIOS needs to be updated in order to find the Ubuntu boot files after installation. Search for 'Linux NUC' to find an article with a work around if you can't be bothered (like me) to update the BIOS (its a bit tricky without a Windows install). Runs very well otherwise.

Other Thoughts: Had a shipping problem which Newegg valiantly (and very quickly) resolved so that I had my parts in time to do the build over the weekend as planned. My faith in Newegg is confirmed again.

5 out of 5 eggsFuture c-3po

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD34010WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Small footprint - good graphics for watching video.

High quality materials.

This is the model you want if you want to use a sata ssd - there is room internally to mount it, and the mounting is very neat.

Cons: none so far - working as advertised

Other Thoughts: This was purchased for a mobile cart pc build, using an anthro stand up cart knockoff.

8 gig of ram, intel ssd, Eaton 5S 1500 UPS, I'm getting about 2 hours runtime running windows updates in the background, and play the Red video at 1080P, screen rez set to 2560 x 1080.

We have some people that need a desktop form factor, but it needs to be able to be wheeled around too.

I may get one for home too - though I'll likely go with the I5 version.
