doesn't work well with the 7260 Wifi half mini card.

Summary: Bought this along with the dual-band Intel 7260 Wifi Half Mini card to run XBMC. It works great, but only EVERY OTHER REBOOT. I have to reboot twice, no matter what, to get the wifi card to work. I don't know if the issue is the wifi card or the NUC, but they are both going back. FYI: I tried updating bios, updating drivers, and a different OS. I have had problems with other buggy Intel hardware before, so not entirely surprised.
Summary: This little thing is the coolest thing since sliced bread. I have built and rebuilt this thing using different Operating Systems and it has been flawless. I built a Linux Distro, Windows 7, and Mac OSX. I have settled and the Mac OSX, to use along side my Windows Machine. Mac OSX takes a little effort to get the correct wifi card, but there are many out there. I found Atheros card worked best.
Summary: Been a rocky road with this one as a Windows Media Center server. I added a Apple thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter to hard wire the Ethernet. I tend to get a lot of ip address conflicts every week. This is the adapter being reset and re-initialize with a new Mac address. You might want to a nuc with a real Ethernet port. Other wise this has been a great box.
Intel's Next Unit of Computing Kits. "A Monster," in a small box!

Summary: Excellent! New form of computing, just attach to your big screen monitor, in the rear of it. A keyboard and mouse and connect it to your to your Wi-Fi network and you're ready to go. Works like any other computer, without taking up the space that they require. If you want, to make it work better and faster, just buy a new SSD Card and add a new 4, 8, or 12 GB Chipset, then you'll have a Monster packed into that small box. Comes with Thunderbolt outlet, USB 2 or USB 3.

Summary: Well Done Intel. have this running for few months now.. no problems!... i was skeptical at the beginning, but now it is good product! support is at your fingertips at intel page, a bit of a reading but all good if you take your time.. speed is good, have it with 16gb/128ssd, flawless.
