Great Product - Terrible Support by Intel

Pros: I love the system, fast as get all. I am very happy with the hardware, no issues at all

Cons: Intel Support SUCKS. When I go to download the software bundle from Intel the key provided does not work (The key is the system serial number) When I open a support ticket they refuse to resolve the issue saying they need a screenshot of the system serial number, invoice and a copy of the master key provided with the system. I give them everything I have (I scanned the serial number from the box with the serial number on it, I also scanned the insert telling me where to download the software and to use the system serial number. Now they do not even respond. If I would have known that Intel was going to treat a paying customer this way I probably would have purchased something else (Part of the reason I purchased this system was the software bundle).

Other Thoughts: No I do not recommend this item until Intel gets its support up to speed and treats the customers properly. If they decide to resolve the issues satisfactorily and may boost my rating

Smokin fast!

Pros: core i8 with the integrated amd gpu makes this thing sing, with a 4k monitor watching 4k hdr videos on youtube the gpu only uses about 20%. I paired this build with a samsung evo 1 tb 970 and WOW this thing sings! I also paired it with 16gb of ram.
I also bought a sonnet 10Gbe thunderbolt 3 adapter to pair with my network and bang! 1.15 GBE a second, no problem fully maxed out. Also you will never run out of I/O front and back.

Cons: The audio is sub par, a lot of scratchy sound coming out of my speakers, did all the updates but still their, i used the front 3.5mm jack and audio seams better.

Other Thoughts: Don't let the size of this thing worry you, its a power house!
Replaced a i7 6700k system with this system and I'm really happy!
This is now my main system and at full power its still quiet.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Good for low end gaming

Pros: Good media center but could have done that for much less money.

Cons: - Not as powerful gaming as I had hoped. Not sure I believe the benchmarks out there.
- Struggles to run games on a 50in+ TV but does okay on 60HZ monitor.

Other Thoughts: Edit: After a couple months of use now having issues with HDMI display. Upon boot and after going to sleep the NUC powers up but the monitor is just black screen. I've tried a few different monitors and cables definitely NUC related. Pretty disappointed overall. Performance and reliability certainly outweigh space saving...

Perfect for 2k gaming

Pros: - There are setting in the BIOS that lets you disable each and every front facing LED, even the power button LED. This is my favorite feature.
- Perfect for 2k gaming (with Dota 2 settings on high (not ultra) my LG 32" 4k monitor displays 50 fps. If I had a 2k monitor the NUC would probably display 60fps.
- Compact size is excellent
- Lots of USB ports
- Relatively quiet (half as loud as the Gigabyte AORUS Gaming Box GTX 1070 that I had connected to my laptop previously)

Cons: - Good as is but I want more graphics power so I can play Dota 2 at 60fps at 4k. Ideally 120fps :-)
- Good as is but I want more CPU power
- I wish it had two more USB ports (I have a lot of USB peripherals)

Other Thoughts: - Intel, please make a NUC with even more power!
- Intel, please make an upright model that vents out through the top (like the PS3 when stood on its side).

Worked great for 38 days and now it's completely dead.

Pros: -FAST
-Surprisingly good for gaming on high settings
-Small and easy to transport

Cons: -EXPENSIVE
-Did not last very long at all
-Newegg won't replace it after 30 days

Other Thoughts: -Don't buy this, use the money on a good laptop or desktop build instead. Intel's support is only available during "normal business hours" so if you also have to work, guess you're out of luck.

Otherwise Great Product Ruined by Defective Blower Fan (Ball Bearings)

Pros: Lightweight, powerful, quiet operation. It feels as smooth as a desktop with separate CPU and dedicated graphics card. Premium fit and finish.

Cons: Like other reviewer, my fan started making noise after a couple of weeks. Impossible to repair on my own and I fear that it may be a common problem for this model since there are several reviewers stating the same thing.

Expensive for what it is. True cost is a few hundred more than a traditional desktop with similar performance (Even at $800). Factor in additional costs for HD, RAM, and Windows 10 license.

Large power brick.

Other Thoughts: This is a niche product for someone who has limited space, but wants all the I/O ports. For me, it simultaneously connects to my headphones, speakers, external monitor, mouse, webcam, USB-C keyboard, printer, and ethernet while also charging my USB-C devices.

I don't think you will have buyers remorse unless it breaks. But with newer CPU and GPUs recently launched, it will be like paying current generation prices for an older generation PC.

Little beast!!!

Pros: Small form factor, very powerful, wonderful performance, great connectivity and you can customize all the BIOS parameters.

Cons: It's relatively heavy and if you are a Linux user, graphics card hasn't drivers for penguin yet.

Great product held back by cheap blower fans

Pros: - Amazing performance in a compact design, novel chip with built in AMD graphics
- Easy to put together and start using
- Exception amount of ports and customization options
- Fancy retail box (if you like that sort of thing)
- Runs very quiet, very well vented

Cons: - Inaccessible blower fans (see note) that had bearings start to fail within weeks
- You have to disconnect the skull lights every time you go into the machine, very delicate cable that is probably best left alone
- Hilariously large power brick - it's like the size of a VHS tape
- Not as sturdy as previous NUC machines

Other Thoughts: I really liked this machine and was using it for 4K video work and gaming, but things started to go sideways after about a week and I had to send it back. Let me explain - it has 2 blower fans attached to a large heat sink on the underside of the machine, under the motherboard that you can't get to. In my case, one of those blower fans had bad bearings that started to fail after a week, producing a very annoying grinding/rattling sound. The bearings are so bad that even when powered off, the machine rattles when you pick it up ... On previous Skull Canyons there was only one blower, and it was easily accessible should you need to maintain it. Not so in this case.

RMA'd the machine, hoping the replacement is better. Would give it a solid 5 if it wasn't for this, but am now deeply concerned about the quality of parts Intel is putting into these machines...
