Intel dictates what software you can run on hardware that ...

awelch, Amazon
15 September 2014
  • Summary: Intel dictates what software you can run on hardware that you purchased. They only support desktop operating systems and do not offer any drivers for server based systems. My next purchase certainly won't be another Intel.

Bad Bottom SODIMM Slot

Aric A., Newegg
8 August 2014
  • Summary: Maybe Newegg received a bad batch?
  • Pros: It nice when you get a good one. I have purchased several of the i5 variant of this product and they have all worked well.
  • Cons: I ordered one of these with G.Skill Ripjaw F3-1600C9D-8GRSL. It fails Memtest86 5.01. Both sticks of the kit pass diagnostics in the bottom SODIMM slot both sticks fail in the top slot. I returned it and got a replacement for the first one and the replacement is having the same problem. They have...

I got jipped!

David N., Newegg
15 July 2014
  • Summary: I will change my rating when INTEL ships US the newer Blank Chassis. Until then, it gets one star. Everyone else should follow suit.
  • Pros: on board standard SATA connection
  • Cons: I can't use an SSD inside the chassis even though INTEL has supplied the internal headers for one on the motherboard. This is because the case isn't big enough to support one. Come to find out, INTEL later released a bigger chassis with the SAME MOTHERBOARD. All I can say is, everyone who bought ...

Not a very good HTPC or headless pc

Jared S., Newegg
24 March 2014
  • Summary: The recommended work around is to uninstall the intel drivers and use the standard microsoft vga driver, unacceptable from my stance as an hdmi out only HTPC.
  • Pros: Great small form factor, runs fast and stays cool and quiet.
  • Cons: It has to have a monitor hooked up at all times and you cant change the source or it causes low memory error in windows 8.1 64 bit and crashes, this is a well known issue that seems to be driver related and should have been fixed. Right now these are useless for any headless setups, HTPC where yo...

Would love to love this, but . . .

edoray, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Bought into the whole deal. Got the unit with 16GB of ram, a 240GB mSata Internal hard drive and a Wireless Wifi with Bluetooth unit. Installed Linux Mint on it, updated all drivers and the bios, and was ready to go. At least I was. The machine wasn't. It constantly over heated and shut down.

Deceptive advertising, doesn't run 4k

TheGeorge, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: If you are looking to run a 4k monitor, look elsewhere The description claims it runs Display port 1.2. First off all, it's incredibly hard to get a Displayport 1.2 mini cable. It took me several months on back order to get mine (by which time I couldn't return the NUC!!).

Great Idea

Keith M., Newegg
21 December 2013
  • Summary: I was initially excited because it seemed to offer small size, low power and decent performance. I haven't entirely given up on Intel because my current PC has an Intel motherboard and SSD and they work fine.
  • Pros: Has the appearance of quality. A lot smaller than I expected.
  • Cons: Frequently boots up without video connection. Ethernet hardware was not being detected. Severe overscan if you have a TV without 1:1 pixel mapping. Have not been able to login since updating the BIOS and drivers because it doesn't see the keyboard or mouse any more.

Fausse image

naomix, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: Si je me base sur la documentation d'Intel, l'image présentée est celle d'un D5425WYKH. Le "H" implique possibilité d'intégrer un DD, ce qui n'est pas le cas du modèle D54250WYK.
