5* Fantastic mini PC
Reviewed by James on 06/12/2014
After researching all the mini PCs on the market and already owning a Zotac ID18, this Intel NUC seemed like the best choice for a low cost high performance "hidden" PC.

I wasn't disappointed - this is plenty fast enough for any application I throw at it, boots into Windows 7 in 5 seconds and hides itself snugly with a (supplied) mounting kit to fit to the back of a monitor.

Additional bits I added:
Crucial 120GB M500 mSATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive
2x Crucial 4GB DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM (it will support 2x 8Gb if you need it)
Akasa HDMI Mini to HDMI cable (important!).
N.B. You may also need a wifi adaptor unless you have a wired network.

The whole lot for under £400 - job done!
5* I have 3 of these

These little things are great for running a small home lab
5* Fantastic little box
Reviewed by Rupert on 21/04/2014
This is a great piece of kit. Its going to sit under the telly with ubuntu / xbmc. Couple of things to watch out for... Check this has the latest information about the box. Particularly TESTED RAM!! The Corsair So-DIMMs I bought did not work and the box simply did not even display the bios. Nothing. Very concerning. I used the Crucial in the end with the Cache Latency CL11 (Corsair was 10). As I say check the website. Also There are the bios firmwares. Again, It wants to use EFI, and with Linux it can't find it before v.24. Mine shipped with v21. Its really easy to upgrade using F7 at boot and the bio file on a flash drive. After that, a piece of cake and loads 14.04 in under 5 seconds. Very happy. Roll on the the release of Gotham :-)
5* Intel NUC I5-4520U UCFF
Reviewed by Anonymous on 16/12/2013
I have always wanted a small powerful pc which could be connected to my living room TV, which I could use to surf and play the odd game. The Intel Nuc does all this and more. It has so far played most of my steam games, Towerwars etc with ease and it is extremely fast at surfing and movies etc. Blueray movies no problem at all. I spec'd it with windows 8.1, 16ddr3 1.35v ram, intel centrino wireless card and a m'ssd 120gb drive. Its fast quiet and when screwed to the vesa mount on the back of your tv it invisible! wireless mouse and keyboard are the only giveaway that a pc is even there. Awesome. Buy one!
5* Amazing
Reviewed by Graeme on 27/11/2013
Make sure you have the necessary tools before you start - an antistatic wrist band and a screwdriver kit.

Overall, the box is tiny and very solidly built. Its a nice design too! I got an intel 525 series 240Gb msata storage device, 16Gb SO-DIMM ram and an intel wifi adapter. All of the devices I prechecked were compatible with the NUC. Intel has great support on its site.

It took me about half an hour to assemble, and most of that was getting the wifi aerial connected. I then had to get windows 8 onto a memory stick, you don't need any freeware to do this, just the diskpart command and filecopy will do the job.

The results are not disappointing at all. This little machine packs plenty of compute punch. Goodbye tower for good! I actually intend to extend this into a minature server farm.

Definitely the way forward. Good move Intel!
