Tidy, Pretty and Gutsy 6/11/2020 6:39:38 AM

Pros: - good bang for the buck
- reliable
- easy to set up
- very compact
- pretty
- fully supported by Linux distros

Cons: - a little pricey, especially when you add the cost of the drive and ram
- not recommended for high end gaming
- make sure you completely unscrew the bottom bolts before you try to open it

Overall Review: Using this as a server box with the option to use it as a backup pc if necessary. I've got Debian Bullseye (Linux) installed on it and everything is supported and functions without issues.

Audio doesn't work with Windows 10 1903 10/7/2019 6:48:03 PM

Pros: Small and relatively low cost.

Cons: The built-in sound chip doesn't work at all with the Windows 10 1903 and the latest driver from the Intel Driver Update site (Realtek 6.0.1.8633). Just gives an error message whenever any audio should have played.

Fan is pretty loud for such a small package.

Overall Review: I really wanted this product to work well, but the fact that the audio output simply doesn't at all with Windows 10 1903 drops it to 1 egg. After going back and forth with Intel Tech support over several weeks, I finally installed Windows 10 1809 and the audio worked immediately. It is obvious that Intel simply hasn't done any testing at all with Windows 10 1903. Hopefully this review helps others so you know what the problem is before sending the unit in for repair to Intel.

Excellent Living Room VR Machine 4/28/2019 12:37:46 PM

Pros: -Small footprint
-Runs cool
-Excellent driver support from Intel

Cons: -none

Overall Review: I use this thing to run VR. Here is my set up:

-Intel NUC i3 8109U (NUCi3BEK) (connected to Sonnet via USB-C)
-Windows 10 Pro (fully updated all drivers as of 4-27-2018)
-8 GB RAM
-HP ex900 128GB M2
-Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box
-Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce 1070
-Onkyo TX-RZ3100
-TCL 55P607 (running from ARC HDMI input)

Note: Make sure you go into the NUC bios and select the "thunderbolt" as the main video out!!!!

The GPU only has ONE HDMI, so I have to use a DP to HDMI converter and make that run to the Onkyo. Then the regular HDMI on the GPU to my HMD Odyssey. I had troubles the other way around and could not get the VR screen to show. The Odyssey's USB is connected to the NUC.

Works with AKiTio Node eGPU. Also Ubuntu Linux 18.10 4/7/2019 11:50:24 AM

Pros: - Good general desktop performance from a smaller lower-end PC.
- Works with the AKiTio Node external GPU box via Thunderbolt 3 on Windows 10. I'm able to use a full desktop GPU with this, very nice performance.
- Works with Ubuntu Linux 18.10, everything seems to work out of box no problem (wifi, bluetooth, etc.).

Cons: - For the price and size, this is perfect.

Well worth every dollar. 12/4/2018 2:49:19 PM

Pros: -Small footprint. Currently using it as a backup computer.
-ease of access to the internals via 4 screws at the bottom.
-Cool box.
-Nice black/grey color scheme.
-Intel core i3-8109U (mobile CPU) included was enough for me.
-Case badge, Power brick/cable, Instructions and VESA mounting system included.
-Fan is quiet. No thermal throttling on light uses.
-M.2 Capable - I am running 2280 length M.2.
-Easy to install and Instructions are clear.
-Has a charging port to charge your phone or can be used as another USB (Yellow)
-Has audio out jack for headphones and MicroSD slot

Cons: No cons as of 12/4/18 - Everything is running great today. Got windows 10 and updated the BIOS and drivers. Very pleased and saves space on my desk. I doubt I will have any issues for years to come.

Overall Review: Intel engineers did a great job with this lineup. I was reading reviews from back in the day when some NUC's didn't have a power cord and some models has complaints of overheating. My NUC is cool to the touch and will serve as a backup should my main desktop go down. Please note this model is the M.2 SSD version.
