Summary: This little thing can play 1080p videos encoded with current codecs flawlessly by leveraging Intel QuickSync technology through the video chipset. However, it falls flat on its face when a new video codec standard (H.265) was thrown at it. QuickSync could not decode H.265 so that leaves the job up to the cpu - which pegged at 100% on complex scenes. The result was still pictures instead of fluid motion. Perfect for online audio/video, web browse, lab, etc...
Summary: I'm torn on the review because the computer performs well and works great. Yes, it's expensive but that's well-known and anyone buying one knows what they are getting into before purchase. The form factor isn't common and there aren't many other options, thus somewhat justifying the expense.
Summary: I was very happy with an earlier NUC purchase that I was eagerly waiting for the Core i5 with USB3.0. USB3.0 is the key feature I found lacking with the earlier models and finally I can extend the storage capacity over a faster direct link. The unit itself with its functionality is pretty good, my main issue is the non-typical video ports of mini-HDMI and mini-displayport, at least put in a HDMI port for user convenience.
Summary: I have the H version but all the same components which was about the same price at time of purchase. It is not easy to set up unless you know some limitations. The intel msata wireless and bluetooth card on the recommended list is very quick to drop both the wireless and bluetooth connections so you are constantly pairing up. Setting up via the Ethernet connection was easier. You may find that you see no BIOS on start up.
Summary: Réservé à des connaisseurs, petits bugs au niveau du bluetooth, au cas ou le lancement est prévu avec mot de passe, clavier pas reconnu, obligation de connecter en USB, pour le réseau idem avec carte Intel WIFI, enfin de quoi mettre un peu les mains dans le cambouis
