Great Product - Terrible Support by Intel

Intel NUC 8 Premium VR Capable Mini PC Kit NUC8i7HVK
Intel NUC 8 Premium VR Capable Mini PC Kit NUC8i7HVK

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).

Overall Review: 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

Seagate BarraCuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail Packaging

Pros: Cost was reasonable, they work just as advertised, Used these to replace failed drives in a Dual Drive NAS after 1 failed and I decided to upgrade the space from 2-1Tb drives to 2-2Tb drives. They work flawlessly. Just plug play, set up for the NAS and go!

Cons: none

Overall Review: I would definitely reccomend these for use in a NAS any time

Pros: Quick easy interface for scanning

Overall Review: Got this printer on sale as I had an earlier Canon Printer with an external Print Server. I decided to upgrade to a printer MFP with an internal wired and wireless print server and I couldn't be happier. Easy to use and great quality prints. For a home office this is the best!!!

Great Motherboard

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: has IDE and Floppy headers, reasonably priced, performs well

Cons: none yet

Overall Review: Usually I am a Gigabyte or MSI guy. Usually I would use an ASRock for a basics computer. This one however has blown me away. It performs very well and gives me high marks on the SciSoft Sandra benchmarks. Allows me to use my Raid backplane (4 1TB drives in a RAID 5 Array) and has all the bells and whistles to make me haapy. Way to go! ASRock
