Summary: Installed 16Gb memory, Crucial M500, 480Gb mSATA Logitech K400 wireless keyboard and Windows 10 Plus an external USB blue ray dvd player/recorder, a usb harddrive and a 128GB USB flashdrive. The msata drive was not initially recognized. I had add a delay in the bios setup. After that everything worked Initially the windows screen on the TV was a little outside the limits and I could not see the entire menu.

Summary: I bought this NUC, a Samsung 840 EVO SSD, 16GB of Crucial RAM, and a mini-HDMI cord for under $600 before tax and shipping. It was easy to put everything together -- about as easy as it possibly could have been -- and I installed Linux (Centos 7) without any difficulties whatsoever. It's faster than I expected, very quiet, and very small (although it does have an external power supply, like a laptop). The build quality is solid, and it was fun to take it out of the box.
Summary: I bought this to set up as an HTPC (Home Theater PC) with a full version of windows installed on it. It works pretty good. It's definitely not a gaming machine, but can do the web browsing and mulitmedia that I need it for. It would be good if it came with a wifi/bluetooth card built-in. I also wish that the output would be slightly better.

Summary: Works well, and I enjoy tinkering with it as an HTPC XBMC client. I only gave it 4 stars because initial Linux setup on this NUC was slightly trickier than on any other computer I've installed it on. But once I figured it out it's worked well for the most part.
Great size, quiet as can be, but integrated graphics are terrbile

Summary: Just about anyone who has a working set of eyes is complaining about the graphics on these things. You can add me to that list too. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 5000 on this little thing is a joke. If I had a chance to do it over again, I would have paid a little more and gotten the Gigabyte Pro/Gamer model with the separate GPU installed on it.
