Tiny, Quiet, and Powerful (enough).

Chris, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • 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...

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...

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

  • 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!

and for a surprisingly small amount of money I had a perfect replacement for an aging computer that had started to ...

Markus Gutschke, Amazon
16 November 2014
  • Summary: I needed a small desktop computer in a hurry. For $6 extra, Amazon shipped me the NUC and all the needed accessories ( SSD , WiFi card , memory , power cord , USB drive , VGA and audio breakout adapter ) the same day.

Great HTPC Option

Adrian B., Newegg
2 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Raspberry Pis that I had setup in my living room and my bedroom. I installed XBMCbuntu, and the dual HDMI output worked instantly. I wanted to customize the audio, because I have surround sound in my living room, but only the tv speakers in my bedroom.
  • Pros: Dual HDMI output Quite under load Great for XBMC(XBMCbuntu, Openelec, etc.) Also great for Linux Cheaper than building a comparable mini-itx system
  • Cons: None really. It doesn't come with the power cord, but that's nothing major.

Great buy! Would buy another

Jancarlos Reyes "Jancarlos Reyes", Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to use a Plex Server. At first I was a bit skeptical of buying a Celeron processor PC to run a media server with a 2 TB HDD. But I am very happy with the results. Media streams in HD streaming from a FiOS 15/5 network. It's on 24/7 and have had no issues until now.

Simple Build, Powerful Options

webdes03, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: Love these little computers. Paired one up with an Intel 6235 Dual Band Wifi/Bluetooth Half Height Mini PCI Express card, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 32Gb mSATA SSD, and a 24" widescreen touchscreen monitor to create a Win 8 PC in our kitchen for streaming music and cooking.
