4 out of 5 eggsnice barebones

Pros: - Low Power (with an ssd) potentially uses about 4 watts (as much as an led lightbulb).
- Great for a basic server or desktop replacement
- Smaller than a booksize computer, yet cheaper with decent hardware offerings
- 8GB RAM (good enough for most uses) ... including running a few virtual machines quietly
- 8GB Max is enough to do any OS & update/upgrade it several times before needing new hardware
- Linux compatible (tried *buntu based distributions) & hardware is easily configured

Cons: As indicated in other reviews,
- Horrible trying to get Windows 7 x64 on (have not yet successfully) been able. Installer stalls saying not compatible. While 32 bit installs, it can only use 4GB of RAM (Max for any 32 bit OS).
- BIOS Updater: In theory could go out to the Internet & update itself. The reality is that it cannot. I had to manually look up my model, download the firmware file (using a liveCD OS like Hirens or linux) to the local hard drive (would not recognize usb based media), then use the updater looking for a local file. Once complete, I could then attempt to install Windows 7 (attempts without upgrading it failed for me).

Other Thoughts: Build:
- Samsung SSD (for low power & long lasting performance)
- 8GB RAM (1 slot, max capacity & fast!)
- HDMI to VGA adapter (one was setup as a desktop replacement to an older monitor) Not necessary if you do a headless (no monitor, remote access) server

This is a great low power machine (do your homework on the chipset). Intel just came out with an updated model that uses a new chipset (that has even greater power saving benefits).

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable HTPC

Pros: Small, relatively cheap, uses 2.5" HHD, aluminium body.

Linux Mint 17.1 works great without tweaking.

Plays 720p and 1080p very well.

Cons: Playback can be laggy in scenes where there is a lot of activity and in panning shots; noticeable at 720p. It appears to skip the occasional frame (This could be software too).

Only one HDMI output.

Silver is the only option for the case.

Other Thoughts: The site and the box state this is a N2820; however, the system profiler indicates this is a N2830.

Haven't tested the wired LAN or IR-Receiver yet, so I can't confirm they work with Mint 17.1 without tweaking.

The case gets only slightly warm, even after streaming SD video for 12+ hours.

5 out of 5 eggsWin 7 quiet cool quick simple

Pros: Small, deathly quiet and cold, cheap, simple, with a 120ssd snd 4gb ram im at $300. Windows install is simple if you follow the instructions on intel's step by step installation page but tricky for noobs so go slow if thats you. Flash the bio, configure bio to your OS, plug in your bootable instalation media, hit f10...done

Cons: Nothing more than simple games, just web, homework, and media center

4 out of 5 eggsNice little XBMC bos

Pros: Streams Netflix in 720p well. Runs nice with WIndows 10 Preview
Runs everything I try in XBMC just fine under WIndows.

Cons: Wish for a Dsub or DVI port and another USB 3 on front or somewhere.
Also don't like the "special" power connector that I'm warned not to replace with another brand. S/PDIF digital audio connect would be nice.

Other Thoughts: Setup with 8gb stick of Crucial Ballistix ram and an old 60gb Intel SSD. Ordered Win 8.1 from new egg but started with Win10 Preview. Installed just fine without bios upgrade from USB dvd. Win 10 found wireless drivers right out of the box so I had internet right away. Does everything I ask it to in XBMC and Netflix with video and audio in 720p. Haven't hooked it up to a 1080 monitor yet. Runs great with the 8gb plus the SSD. Quiet and giving no problems so far.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst product ever made

Pros: It's sleek, it's cheap, and it's loaded with about everything you need for a nice OEM unit running embedded Linux.

Very nice features

Cons: They lied. Pretty much that simple. Whatever Linux support is claimed by Intel on these boards is an outright lie. It's all suppositions about whether or not a distribution works.

Even putting the unit in Legacy boot mode, you cannot get pretty much any Linux distribution to install on it. You could try to go with Ubuntu, but even once the unit is up and running, mysteriously nothing seems to work. Repos are broken, code fails, etc.

I can go through a rundown on a server install, same image, same install instructions, and it will fail with this unit and yet succeed on any virtual server in the cloud.

This is a nice shiny Windows 8 machine, and more than a little underpowered if you were going for that in the first place. Otherwise, don't waste your time with the Intel NUC line. It's not Linux or developer friendly.

Build quality is extremely low as well. The HDMI and video on the unit busted a little while ago. Multiple monitors, cables, etc. No video signals anymore either.

Other Thoughts: This is just an expensive Windows unit to run Netflix and watch movies. If you want to do something serious with it, move on to the next product line and company.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for HTPC

Pros: Hardware video decode, Front USB 3.0, quiet, small, built-in IR receiver, standard 2.5 SATA HD, excellent performance for a 7.5 W TDP

Cons: Shipping BIOS is outdated, can't get WiFi card to authenticate to old Netgear AP under Ubuntu 14.04, UEFI boot is wonky with Ubuntu

Other Thoughts: The BIOS screen res is incompatible with many TVs. Works fine with PC monitor. BIOS update fixes that though. Under Ubuntu, finds my Netgear WG102 AP, but will not authenticate using WPA2 and will not connect. Won't even connect when I change to open AP. Can't seem to get fresh Ubuntu EFI install to work, but non-EFI works fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Linux XBMC box

Pros: Setup as an HTPC running Fedora 20 and XBMC conntected via HDMI to a 60" TV.

Wireless Network, Wireless Keyboard/Mouse and IR Remote let me control it. Boots and runs from an 8GB USB3 Memory Drive in the case.

Cons: Couldn't get the BIOS to update. Right now, it isn't an issue as it runs great without the updates.

Other Thoughts: Wish there was another USB3 port on the front panel...In fact I wish all the USB ports were on the front panel.

5 out of 5 eggsXBMC Marvel

Pros: Hardware support for video decoding, deinterlacing, scaling and rendering under XMBC and Windows.

Cons: No support for hardware deinterlacing and scaling in Linux Intel drivers under OpenELEC.

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent media center machine as long as you use Windows OS. You can set everything to be done in hardware. Under XBMC set:
Decoding - DXVA2, Deinterlacing - DXVA Best, Scaling - DXVA, Rendering - DXVA-HD
And you will have great image quality on all HD and SD content with ~18% CPU utilization. Unfortunately you will be limited to poor deinterlacing (bob) and scaling (bicubic) under OpenELEC due to poor driver support.
