Amazing low-power capability

Steve, Amazon
1 March 2015
  • Summary: This unit only draws 24 watts at full operation, and my tests rate it at about 12 GFLOP/sec. I am using it for power-efficient scientific computing, and it seems like a great little box. I've got Windows 8.1 loaded on it - using an external USB DVD player it was able to boot up very easily.

The Intel NUC is really a great small computer

Crabby, Amazon
30 December 2014
  • Summary: The Intel NUC is really a great small computer. Installation was seamless except the bios needed an updated first and it didnt seem read a NTFS USB memory stick on boot up. It read a FAT32 stick just fine and then allowed me to install Win7 with no issues.

Great HTPC, but lacking a bit with some hardware

C. Mielke, Amazon
4 December 2014
  • 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.

and I enjoy tinkering with it as an HTPC XBMC client

jcfromsanjose, Amazon

  • 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.

Awesome Desktop

Bill W., Newegg
15 September 2014
  • Summary: This would be a great opportunity for an integrator to build and configure these machines so users could self-install.
  • Pros: Possibly the most awesome purpose built desktop environment I've seen. I'm very big into smaller is better and this guy is actually velcro'ed to the back of my monitor. For desktop users, this is entirely what they would need for day to day productivity or personal use. The lack of unneeded ports...
  • Cons: I would naturally want to deploy these as desktops within a larger environment, but the barebones nature of it being a kit would make my assembly time more difficult than I would like.

Powerful little computer but not that good for 4k video yet

Maui cruiser, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: For such a small computer this thing is fast, quiet, easy to assemble and has decent graphics. I have it connected to a Samsung 4k monitor via HDMI running at 3840x2160 30hz (4k). Only giving 4 stars because they claim that you can use the display port for 4k 60hz but it's not possible.

Intel Box54250WYK mini desktop computer

eitan d., Newegg
20 July 2014
  • Summary: It is great to replace a desktop in places that there is no room for the computer box, It is slower than a similar price tower box.
  • Pros: small in size, comes with mounting bracket that can connect to the back of the monitor, or to the wall/desk. fast with powerful graphics, equipped with mSATA SSD (as no other drive will fit. Can support 2 monitors using mini display port and / or mini HDMI port
  • Cons: As the power adaptor is to low in wattage, some external hard disks and external DVD, use expensive 1.35V laptop memory, Use mini HDMI, that is very delicate connector, and take it in and out will damage the connector.

Use this as a media production computer

Sean C "tech entrepreneur", Amazon
24 June 2014
  • Summary: I've bought/build a few of these now, replacing much larger computers. The i5 is plenty fast for 90 percent of what people do on computers. My particular use is in an audio production studio. Added components: The Samsung 840 m.sata, 8 gigs of memory, and the intel 7260 wireless / Bluetooth module.

Intel NUC - The new DIY computer

Jay Friesen, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: I've built several computers in the past, but when this became available it formed the ideal base for a computer replacement for my wife's dying Dell laptop. Adding a WiFi card, memory and an SSD was easy. Loaded Windows 7 and she has been thrilled by it's speed and reliability for the last 6 weeks.
