It Does Tilt!

SCEPTRE E248W-1920 Black 24" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DCR 5,000,000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers, US Warranty
SCEPTRE E248W-1920 Black 24" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DCR 5,000,000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers, US Warranty

Pros: 24", Great Price, HDMI, VGA, DVI Audio In connection It does tilt. You have to sit it in front of you, hold each SIDE of the lowest part of the monitor, push down and back at the same time. I saw this on Youtube with a slightly different model number. At first I thought why would they make a monitor that doesn't tilt back. I am now happy.

Cons: Speakers are bright sounding (little base response). I have external speakers. I don't see an issue with Win 10. I suspect other have issues with older video cards or outdated onboard video.

Overall Review: I just use it to get on the internet. Online videos seem fine but I don't know what it would be like to watch a movie

I have bought two.

Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) BOXNUC8i5BEK1 Intel Quad Core i5 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) BOXNUC8i5BEK1 Intel Quad Core i5 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Small, stays cool. The fan is not noisy at all. I did not have a noisy fan and both the I7 I just bought and the I5 that I bought a couple of years ago are quiet. I have 500 gigs in both and 16 gigs of RAM. Both of them have a side slot specifically for a micro SD. I have 4 USB 3 ports. One is a higher capacity charging USB 3 port. Graphics are fast and nothing that I use lags. WiFi seems to work no matter what room in the house I use them. If you have an old WiFi Router, then I suspect it may be causing problems for new owners. Some of the cheaper brands of routers use substandard parts and fail often.

Overall Review: Yes, I recommend them and have to my friends. They see how ZIPPY they are and are impressed. I recommend updating the firmware if available.

How to get into the bios

Fanless Mini PC, Intel Core I5 4200Y, Desktop Computer, HTPC, Kodi Box, Windows 10 or Linux Ubuntu, NBM05, AC WiFi2.4+5Ghz/BT4.0/VGA/HDMI/LAN/4USB3.0/2USB2.0, (8G RAM/512G SSD)
Fanless Mini PC, Intel Core I5 4200Y, Desktop Computer, HTPC, Kodi Box, Windows 10 or Linux Ubuntu, NBM05, AC WiFi2.4+5Ghz/BT4.0/VGA/HDMI/LAN/4USB3.0/2USB2.0, (8G RAM/512G SSD)

Pros: Getting into the bios. The screen goes off super fast (took me a couple of tries) turning it on to see the screen but you keep hitting ESC as soon as you push the on button The screen says you can hit DEL also but I had the best luck with the ESC key. Snappy boot ups with only the SSD 512G. I didn't op for the HD. Win 10 pro comes installed. It is an older version, but you can upgrade any version of Win 10 from an older version at no cost. It tells you in window to update it. I also made myself the Administrator. I like to have full control.

Cons: I recommend a lot of air space around this micro computer because it is fanless. Gets a little warm but seems to take the heat well.

Overall Review: Snappy little computer. Boot up into pre-installed Win 10 pro. The way they have it listed I thought it might only have support for Win 10, but it is pre-loaded. You can also order with ubuntu but that is a free Operating System, so I opted for Win 10. I can always re-install Win 10 if I want to try Ububtu for a while. Wifi works great but the router is in the same room.

Best Virus Program for me

Kaspersky Total Security 2022 1 Year / 5 Devices - Download
Kaspersky Total Security 2022 1 Year / 5 Devices - Download

Pros: I used it before with Win 7 and so I ordered it again with 5 computer use. I have it on my desktop and it is working great. I will put it on my laptop, but need to re-install the operating system. I plan on installing after a fresh install of Win 10. I will also use it on my NUC at my vacation home.

Cons: I don't have any issues with it.

Overall Review: Works without noticing any lag or stopping. The protected browser comes on and I use it for banking and all of my important things online. Apparently my email and other information is on the dark web? The only issue is I don't have much for anyone to take nor can I afford to have someone hold my files hostage. Social Security is barely keeping up with the bills nowadays. I do recommend the Total Security. I scan every night and it automatically shuts down after the full scan. I just go to sleep after it starts

Quiet, but functional.

Works fine for a replacement of my desktop. I worried about the heat (no fan) but seems to work well without it. Just give it airspace and it stays warm but not burning hot. When you first use it change yourself to the "Administrator" and do a complete manual update. Tells yo haw to on the internet.
