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.
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: 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
