Like a needle in a hay stack to find and ...

StarNet27, Amazon
8 July 2015
  • Summary: Lousy product, as it does not come with a power cord! Instructions say to visit site for proper cord specifications. Like a needle in a hay stack to find and never did. Way to go Intel... Sell a computer without a power cord to keep the price down.

Tiny, Quiet, and Powerful (enough).

Chris, Amazon
10 June 2015
  • Summary: These Intel barebones kits are great for low cost, powerful kodi/xbmc boxes. Although smart TVs and "media sticks" are becoming more advanced and seamless, I am not aware of any that provide the ability to stream local content, act as a DVR for live TV signal, open netflix, emulate games, run...

Not impressed

Jason C., Newegg
8 June 2015
  • Summary: I am more impressed with the JetWay model that is cheaper than this one.
  • Pros: Decent price, dual HDMI, PXE boot seems to work fine.
  • Cons: Does not come with a power cable. Worst idea ever.... Whey you open the box, it plays the Intel tune, like a greeting card. Keep the fancy box and music player. Give me the $1.00 power cable. Very poor support for mSATA drives. Will not recognize any of the mSATA drives I have in the BIOS. There ...

Other than this minor disappointment (my fault

James R. Shriner, Amazon
21 March 2015
  • Summary: purchased for use as OpenElec/Kodi HTPC. After reading several reviews of similar devices, decided this was the one for my needs. Minor caveat to others...READ the description carefully; "internal antenna for wifi" just means that it's WIRED for antenna, you still need the wifi module, ordered...

Problems with cooling and whining noise

Fx, Amazon
17 February 2015
  • Summary: UPDATE 3/7/2015 I have returned this unit because the heating issues still persist although not as bad. Due to the heat, there is still a annoying high-pitched sound constantly emanating in my room, and every couple of days the unit will lock up.

Excellent. No problems.

Daniel K., Newegg
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Very satisfied for my HTPC setup. There are i3 through i7 NUCs available, but this specific NUC is more than capable.
  • Pros: This has been more than adequate for my current set up. I have it as my HTPC that has a dual boot setup with Linux Mint 17.1 and KODIbuntu (Helix). I also use it as a Plex media server to my Roku3 setup in KODIbuntu. I have it connected to a WD MBL where my movies are stored and is able to play t...
  • Cons: Given that a barebones system requires tweaking, the biggest and most difficult thing to setup was the output sound from HDMI. I have it connected to my Sony receiver using HDMI and was not able to get DD 5.1 / LFE to output and display on my receiver from my MBL that I know are encoded for DD 5....

Perfect for OpenElec HTPC use - even jumbo 1080p MKV files!

J. Danforth "Daguerreotypist", Amazon
20 January 2015
  • Summary: This is a device that you probably think won't be powerful enough to make a good home theater PC. I can assure you that the Celeron inside this inexpensive NUC has power to spare.

Awesome!!

Courtney H., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Aside from them leaving out a power cable, which, is silly, I love this little guy and I'll see about buying another. Perhaps doing an i3, it could make a great steam box for streaming games from my big rig and be a great media center for Netflix and such.
  • Pros: I love this little thing! Well, my grandma mostly. I got this little guy for her running Xubuntu 14.04. I love it because of it's size, it has the BEST BOX EVER (not even exaggerating, but this is subjective), it's silent, and very minimalistic. It was easy to install Linux too. No hassles, just ...
  • Cons: No 3 prong power? Really? It'd probably cost you $0.30 and you could just charge us an extra $1-$2.

These truly are a perfect, small form factor

Carl, Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: This is my second purchase (after building this little guy into a full-scale XBMC Media Center already) and now this one makes two in the house. These truly are a perfect, small form factor, powerhouse for your media center projects!
