This review is from: Intel NUC Kit DC53427HYE 2 x 204Pin Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Very quiet, compact, and fast.
- Doesn't include the needed power cord.
- Max memory is only 16GB, would be nice if it was 32GB for my usage.
I bought two of the i5 NUC's to be used in my VMware ESXi 5 home lab and they perform great. The only exception is that you need to load the correct NIC drivers into the esxi ISO file as the NIC drivers are not already included in ESXi 5.
N82E16820231582 - G.SKILL 16GB (2 x 8GB)
SanDisk Cruze Fit 8GB USB flash drive (install esxi on)
Very happy with the setup. Able to upgrade my home lab to something a bit more powerful while using very little power.
