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Cons: Shipping BIOS is outdated, can't get WiFi card to authenticate to old Netgear AP under Ubuntu 14.04, UEFI boot is wonky with Ubuntu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

3 out of 5 eggsIntel NUC

Pros: Small form factor and run all 1080p videos no problem at all. Great for XBMC/MCE. It uses 2.5" SSD/HDD, cheaper storage solution than mSATA Intel NUC. No overheat issue to me.

Cons: Problem with Windows installation. Instruction on Intel website does not work. Problem with system time and system won't turn off on OpenELEC, it just hangs. Read other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: All my hardware have no problem but I had a bunch of BSOD while installing Windows 7/8 on this NUC. I am tired of trying, luckily I happened to have a spare SSD with Win7 on it, I just plugged it in, then it loaded no problem and I have been using this little thing to watch streaming videos, no problem so far. However, this PC seems no battery onboard so once you turn it off completely, you need to adjust clock next time you turn it back on. Not a problem to me since I don't really care as long as I can watch videos. I have 2 more i3 NUC, this is by far the cheapest and most difficult thing to work with, I am pretty sure I won't buy a second unit. Hope Intel can release another cheap and improved NUC.

3 out of 5 eggsthis isnt as easy as it appears

Pros: not that expensive

Cons: cant hook up to tv when first start up, must be a pc monitor, must fish around bios and make sure you have the proper selections for you o/s. bios was not so easy for me to navigate but finally got it. had to upgrade bios with the jumper thinking I needed to when I couldn't load o/s due to BSOD error message saying bios isn't acpi compliant.

Other Thoughts: id have to say I have a average tech knowledge and have never had any problem installing an o/s. the nuc took a lot of time and reading from some of the review here as well as intel forums in order to even load win 7. first of all, i got no video when i first hooked up to tv. thanks to someone here mentioned that he had to initially hook up to a pc monitor first. the default in the bios is win 8 and you have to get in there and swap it out to win 7 or you get BSOD. well if anything, at least I learn what to do now. thanks to all those that have posted review here. may have been even more difficult otherwise.

5 out of 5 eggsNice NUC

Pros: Works fine with Xubuntu Linux. Hosts some low bandwidth web services, source control, and other things.
Installed with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. Has worked fine since installation.
Displays fine on a large screen HDMI TV.

Cons: Wake on LAN may not work. I tried getting it to work via wireless as well as ethernet. But wasn't successful.

Other Thoughts: Product descriptions still read n2820, but it's actually the newer hardware update (n2830).
This was shipped to me around 2nd half of July. Had read about the n2820 bugs, and I was worried I'd get the older n2820 chip. Nice to see it was actually the n2830. Glad it had the hardware updates.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: small.

Cons: mine DOA, no video whatsoever. not fortunately enough to be able to load new bios via removal of the jumper. called intel tech support just in case I may have done something wrong.....nope...

Other Thoughts: for now I have to give it 1 star, however, I reserve the right to change this if my exchange works.

5 out of 5 eggswin 7 mce tv recorder

Pros: So far so good. Updated bios, change bios OS setting to 7 before loading windows. Ran windows update, then loaded 9/2014 driver package from intel website. Runs cool while recording and watching at the same time. No skips in video. HDMI surround sound is good.

Cons: Video output with intel HD driver loaded doesn't quite fit my 1080 HDTV...slightly larger than my screen. Good enough for now.
Didn't talk to new Hillrose remote...returning remote as doa.

Other Thoughts: Nice price. Performance upgrade and low power/silent replacement for my older AMD based win 7 MCE HTPC.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value but not without quirks

Pros: 1. Reasonably quick system for basic tasks
2. Fast and simple setup--just add RAM and HDD
3. Low power consumption - with the parts I used (see below) I see around 6 watts idle and up to about 11 watts doing semi-intensive activities.

Cons: 1. The "dual-band" wireless advertised in some locations is really 2.4GHz and Bluetooth. You must replace it if you want to use 5GHz WiFi.
2. Still has some odd bugs - mine sometimes reports a CPU thermal trip (which must be confirmed manually) on boot even though temps were never high. This seems to be a fairly common issue with no fix yet from Intel.
3. Refused to update system firmware from Windows despite using the Windows package. The F7 method worked fine, but still annoying given the frequency that Intel seems to be releasing updates to fix issues.
4. Never a fan of Realtek integrated NICs
5. I don't want to be too picky given the low cost of the NUC, but more than 2 (3) USB ports would be nice, as would a 6Gbps SATA port and a second video output.

Other Thoughts: I matched it with a 4GB G.SKILL stick (F3-1333C9S-4GSL) and a 64GB Micron C400 SSD I had laying around. Mine had a manufacture date of 7/26/2014 but was still the -102 version, with the 2820 processor. I use it to display a 1080p video stream, and it consumes about 7.2 watts doing that. My goal with the build was a small system at low cost and low power, and I'm satisfied with the result.
