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.
  • Cons: As the power adaptor is to low in wattage, some external hard disks and external DVD, use expensive 1.35V laptop memory,

Great little box, small and quiet

T. Roberts, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: I loaded Win 7 x64-SP1 and all the drivers from Intel's website. Make sure you update the Bios also. Works great and is smaller than I thought it would be...about 3 iphones stacked on top of each other. However, it took me a while to get the OS loaded because the SATA power connector on this board did not have enough power to run my sata dvd drive (wouldn't open the drive door) and I tried 2 different drives.

Great buy

Allard, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: I love this thing ! It's blazing fast, ultra compact and decoding video is suberb. Only reasons I didnt give it 5 stars is that Intel needs to add a power-on via keyboard option (you can only wake it from sleep, not power on via keyboard) and that it's still actively cooled (I always prefer passive cooling, although I must say the noise the cooler makes is very faint).

I'd give it 10 stars if it were less costly

A. L. Shultes, Amazon
3 April 2014
  • Summary: I guess the latest processor justifies the high price. This unit's video is wonderful. It is very fast running Windows. I added an 8-port USB hub to attach all my stuff, all of which works fine. Recommended, especially if space is tight.

Liking it so far...

Raymond Ng, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I successfully installed the 8gb single ddr3 ram (will eventually add another 8gb in the future), the m-sata 240gb, and the ac7260 wifi + bluetooth. The biggest challenge for me was trying to attach the two grey and black antenna wires onto the chip. I was eventually able to get it in. Using this as a HTPC. On first boot set up, I forgot to make changes to BIOS but it didn't seem to matter as it was able to successfully install and boot into windows 8.1 anyways.

Worked out of the box with Fedora 20 Linux

capt1914, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: I setup my NUC with 16GB of PC3-12800 Crucial Ballistix RAM, a Muskin Atlas mSATA SSD, an Air Live X.USB-3 wifi adapter and installed Fedora 20 Linux. All the hardware was correctly detected and pretty much worked upon first boot. In addition, I installed windows 7 inside Oracle Virtualbox and had no hardware issues with this either. Finally, I booted with a Clonezilla live CD for full disk backup imaging and again had zero hardware detection problems.

Perfect for an HTPC

John D., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Pros: I am using this as my streaming HTPC in my bedroom, and it's perfect, small form factor, doesn't run that hot, and EASILY converts up to 24GB HD video files on the fly (probably even bigger than that, just don't have any video hiles larger). Can't give it 5 eggs though, see my reason under "Cons."
  • Cons: I did have one unit that came where the WiFi did not work (almost no reception right next to a wireless router); the bluetooth worked, but the WiFi did not. I ruled out the Intel Wifi/Bluetooth Adapter by using my buddy's adapter, and there still was little/no WiFi signal. Sent it back to NewEgg for the no-hassle return.

Power cord

  • Summary: It comes with the power adapter but not the cord. It requires a 3-Slot Mickey Mouse type plug like this Cables Unlimted 6 feet Mickey Mouse

Don't forget to buy RAM and SSD to even power this up. Quiet but audible fan noise.

Amazon Customer "Tony", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: Performance is decent, fan noise is audible, but not too annoying. So do note this is NOT a fanless case. There is a fan going on constantly. When you buy this, and find out it doens't boot, you know why? Because it comes with zero RAM, and zero HDD. It's the zero ram that causes no display output. You'll see your power light flash 3 times ... that means no RAM.
