Pros: Super Small. Barely Audible. Plenty of Power.
Cons: Wouldn't Mind If It Was Cheaper. Wireless Antenna Weak.
Other Thoughts: Seriously this NUC is great. I was torn between this unit and the i5 version. Glad I saved the extra $100. I use this only for XBMC and can use hardware decoding or software decoding with no issues. It plays every file format I throw at it without frames dropping. I might buy a couple more to replace my other units. My only real complaint is that the wireless antenna has terrible reception. I picked up the Intel Dual Band 802.11ac unit and I get almost no signal on 5ghz with my router in the room directly below this but full signal on the 2.4ghz band.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Linksys AC1900 Dual Band SMART Wi-Fi Gigabit Router (EA6900)
Pros: Fast. Works Great. No Issues So Far.
Cons: The user interface is worthless. They wanted to make it more friendly but instead it feels limited and really silly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive. Came with free SSD. 6gb/s SATA. Wireless N and Gigabit ethernet. This thing is great. Honestly I know many people say this does not work well for XBMC because the processor is slow but it has been working great for me. The box boots quickly. I run Win 7 with XBMC loaded into the shell. I literally never see Windows with it. I would totally buy another one of these if they do the SSD promotion again.
Cons: Due to the slower processor loading highly graphical skins in XBMC can be slow but I will take the tradeoff. The remote receiver is not an e home receiver and when using a harmony remote should be replaced. I never tried to use the included remote however so I can't say whether that will work for XBMC.READ FULL REVIEW
