  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Using in a NUC6i5SYH with no issues.

Cons: I paid $49.99 for a single stick. A few days later, the price was $36.99. Newegg refunded me asap!

Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) BOXNUC6I5SYH 2 x 260Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris graphics 540 1 x full-size HDMI 1.4b 1 x mini DisplayPort 1.2 Aluminum and Plastic Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -FAST!
-Great size for a HTPC.
-'H' model has extra space for a standard 2.5" drive, but barely any larger than the 'K' model. I used 2nd drive to save all my media, and have a Samsung 850 EVO m.2 as my main OS drive.
-Full size HDMI on the new 6 Series is a huge plus! No more adapters needed.

Cons: -4 USB ports is not enough! 6 would be ideal. I understand there are headers to add 2 additional USB2 ports, but this is not an option with the OEM case. Can also easily add a hub if you must.
-No useable USB2 port makes installing Win7 a pain (need to inject drivers and fix Windows Update after install), but this is very easy to deal with.
-No built in HDMI-CEC support, although an adapter is available for an additional $30. I would love for my NUC to be able to turn my TV on.
-Power brick is too big! No company should be placing large bricks at the end of their plug these days. I wish it was sideways or inline like a laptop adapter so it didn't take up so much space on a power strip.

Other Thoughts: Many people are having issues with the new Samsung 950 NVMe based SSD's and this NUC. I had a spare 850 m.2 and it is working great for my current use. Also, memory seems to be very picky! I am personally using 1 stick HyperX Impact 8GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Laptop Memory Model HX421S13IB/8, and have no issues. I would recommend HyperX RAM for this machine.

1 out of 5 eggs Oversized - Too Expensive to RMA 12/23/2013

This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 6000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: none

Cons: Rear fans do not give enough room for a power supply unless you first take them off then apply a lot of force to get them back in after the PSU is mounted.

The optical drive panel opening does not align properly with the mounting location for the drive. The door will not open when the drive is ejected.

Images on Newegg show the depth at 16.4", which is incorrect. It's over 17", and you will need a solid 19+" of rear clearance to use this case!

Drive cage location is terrible.

Front door hinge/lock is very cheaply built/designed.

Other Thoughts: It will now cost me $30 to RMA this case for the defective optical drive issue.
