Pros: The unit is still a great alternative to office pc. Very fast with M.2 or regular 2.5 SSD.

Cons: The bios out of the box was version 28. The unit initially booted then became a brick after saving minor bios changes. No boot. No Video, No Bios splash screen. So I though it was done. I have Kingston Hyperx 2133 DDR4 modules in it and a Crucial 500gb m.2 too. I booted the unit and set the time and date, and enabled the features I wanted on the unit then saved the changes and restated it and the NUC would not post after any of the bios changes.
Since intel has been having bios issues with this model they said not to use the USB recovery method with the .bio file on a flash drive. I believe they stated this with the .33 version and the .36 version. So I used the .39 bio file opened the unit back up and moved the jumper to recovery and recovered the bios with the .39 file and everything now works. I have not had any issue with any NUC prior to these Gen 6 units. I have built 50 plus gen 5 units that never had any bios issue's. This is really a step back as far as I am concerned. The verdict is out if this device rushed to quickly to distribution. Only time will tell.
I am watching this unit like a hawk to make sure it will be stable to use for my customers.

Other Thoughts: Be careful on which m.2 drive you buy the crucial MX 200 2260 is to short. It will not work I had to use a support bracket to use it. Should have looked at the specs. The older gen 5's used the 2260's just fine. My BAD.
