Pain in the keister

Pros: Compact. Visual bios. Great idea.

Cons: Do your research first, there are only a specific set of mSATA devices this will work with. it turns out that after 30 days of on and off troubleshooting, I couldn't return an mSATA that it turns out just won't work. It runs too hot. I sucked it up and bought a new mSATA that is confirmed to work. The NUC saw the new one but won't load Win7 on it. Loading from a USB stick that has an image on it i created off my DVD bought from MS. I'm now hip deep in trying to find just the right UEFI settings and hopefully get it to load windows. If I'd have known it was going to be such a hassle I would have bought something else, or given them a few years to put out a product not full of hangups.

Good HTPC

Pros: Fast boot
Plays HD movies
Small
Quit
Efficient

Cons: A little stutter with HD netflix

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a replacement for an aging home theater PC and have been overall pleased.

In terms of performance, this thing is a fine general purpose PC with enough power for general purpose tasks, as well as the ability to play 1080p movies via HDMI, my chief requirement.

GPU accelerated playback is always smooth, but some less optimized applications (Netflix specifically) can be a little jumpy at times.

Overall I give this product 4/5 eggs.

SSD Boot Issue Fixed

Pros: Tiny, fast, and drives two monitors. 3 USB ports and a GBE Ethernet port make it useful.

Cons: Can have intermittent boot / crash issues if not setup properly.

Other Thoughts: After the BIOS updated I mentioned in my las review, the final fix to the SSD boot / crash issue was to remove the Muskin label on the mSATA board to allow the Intel thermal pad to reduce the mSATA temperature. With the label, the mSATA board ran at 44C, after removal, it ran at 36C. Now it's reliable.

Intel #1 at IC's, Not #1 at Drivers

Pros: Tiny, fast, simple and should be reliable. Also quiet.

Cons: I had intermittent Windows 7 blue screen freezes and "no bootable device found" issues for a while. Happy that I seem to have found a fix for it (below).

Other Thoughts: I installed the 0048 BIOS with no luck. Then I set Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF in the BIOS and that solved both the Win 7 blue screen issue and SSD boot problem. Also, for what it's worth, I set the video memory size to 64MB (it won't boot if set any higher), and I disabled legacy USB.

Good, When It Works

Pros: Worked great for two months, Small, silent, fast enough for our application. Love the tiny form factor.

Cons: Died after two months. Intel support web site was a huge circular navigation pain and a dead end, as it could not identify this product, so the only way to get an RMA was to do the live chat.

Other Thoughts: This review is for the NUC DC3217IYE w/ Intel i3. Love the small form-factor. Now that we have a new replacement for the failed unit we'll put it back online and see how long it lasts this time. Hopefully the first failure was a fluke and not a design problem.
