Summary: This computer includes a third-generation, Intel Celeron processor and a motherboard running Intel's visual BIOS. It also includes 3 USB 2.0 ports, an ethernet port and an external power supply. What it does not include is the following: * Storage: You need an msata solid state drive.
Summary: I'm running mint, and XBMC. My only complaint is it has a fan (which I missed when reading about it). There are other boxes with huge heat sinks, they should be quiter. The good news is the fan only runs when it needs to cool...
Summary: I found out that the drivers for Linux worked flawlessly. So I decided to wipe the drive and put Linux on the NUC. After Installing Linux and intel graphics drivers the system worked extremely well and felt even faster.
Pros: Small and easy to install. Great as a HTPC. Works Flawlessly on Linux Mint 15. Plays 1080p Video with ease.
Cons: First Installed Windows 7 and XBMC on the NUC. A lot of videos played well with the exception of VC-1 encoded videos. They were unplayable. After doing research found that it was the Intel Drivers for Windows. If you turned off the Video Acceleration (DXVA2) in XBMC, Video playback would work wel...
Summary: Review of Intel NUC Model DCCP847DYE I thought I would post a review of this unit that might help someone else in their selection. My intended use for this device was to attempt to use it as either a Ubuntu linux based XBMC box or as a Windows 7 Media Center if it has the juice to make it.
Summary: If you are planning on watching HD video y recommend VLC player o XBMC. Ive found I can play HD videos very nicely while mantaining the processor cool.
Pros: I was planning to build an HTPC for my house, I found this Nuc perfect for the job because of its low price and form factor. I can stream without any troubles HD videos and Full HD videos through my WLAN. With an SSD a 4GB its pretty responsive.
Cons: There are no USB 3.0 ports. You have to buy ram, SSD and Wireless card in order for the nuc to work. Its really weird that they invest money in a box that makes an intel sound when you open it but they don´t include a power cable
Summary: I just received my unit this afternoon. I also got a Crucial m4 SSD (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0082PVK8Q) to install an XBMC system onto. I was torn between installing OpenElec, XBMCbuntu, or doing a minimal Ubuntu Server install and installing XBMC from there.
Summary: Purchases this to be the Hamachi gateway for remote clients to tap into the office network. Installed Win7 Pro on it, and had immediate difficulties downloading driver updates. Had to use sneakernet to get drivers installed, and still had networking issues.
Pros: Small and inexpensive. Just enough for the job at hand.
Cons: Needs a BIOS update out of the box, to be reliable. Not everyone will notice/think of that.
