Intel NUC review


With a small form factor comes great responsibility

Good performance ; Tiny form factor ; Connectivity ; QuickSync

Not much gaming grunt ; No internal SATA port ; A bit pricey when additional extras factored in

The NUC gives us the hots as a general purpose system. With the Intel 520 SSD, it's slick and super responsive to use. And while the Intel HD 4000 graphics fail the fragging test, you do get QuickSync. Within certain limitations, then, you could even...

Intel NUC review: a little desktop PC that holds big promise


The NUC's small size, reasonable price and solid performance make it an ideal PC for tinkerers on a budget. Just be prepared to roll up your sleeves in setting it up.

Fast and simple hardware setup ; Great performance for common tasks ; Small size, VESA-mountable ; Barely audible fan noise

No native USB 3.0 ; Pricey once you factor in all the components

Now, it's time to address the question that we put out there at the very beginning of this review: is the NUC really deserving of its "Next Unit of Computing" title? Absolutely. The NUC stands as proof that traditional, mid-tower PCs deserve to go by...

Intel NUC 8 PC review: tiny gamer


Big power, small package

It’s super small ; ALL THE PORTS ; Powerful enough to game with ; Easy expandability of RAM and storage

It’s expensive ; You have to provide your own RAM, storage, and operating system ; Not as future-proof as a full-sized gaming PC

Mostly though, the NUC 8 isn’t supposed to be something that many people buy. It exists to show off what can be done with a small form-factor PC. And thanks to Intel and AMD’s new partnership, it turns out you can do quite a lot.

Intel's Bean Canyon (NUC8i7BEH) Coffee Lake NUC Review - Ticking the Right Boxes


Intel's NUCs have managed to develop a strong market for ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) machines since they were introduced in the early 2010s. Each CPU generation has seen Intel put out stronger versions of the NUC (both in terms of performance and...

The NUC8i7BEH does have scope for improvement, though. The platform itself is excellent. However, the fan noise / thermal performance is disappointing. It is no doubt challenging to keep a 28W TDP SiP properly cooled in a UCFF machine. Eschewing the...

With putting Win 7 on this machine its easier to set up the hard drive using another pc. Then download the NUC Win 7 drivers from Intel open USB 3 driver and install it then transfer the drive to the NUC 5PPYH, when you boot it, the mouse and keyboard...

It can be a bit slow .

Intel Mini PC—Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i5SYK


Good basic, small & quiet CPU that one can then add to.

A bit tricky to get WIN10 on the Samsung SSD.

Intel Mini PC—Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i5SYK


Very small, very quiet, very efficient, very fast. Stable now and regularly updated (though I found 1 BIOS bug, turning off USB legacy caused all sorts of weird issues but restoring the BIOS back to defaults sorted everything out again). WiFi reception...

Intel could test the BIOS a bit better.. but this model is now the best it's been in a while (earlier models were plagued with suicidal firmware).

Compact size

Absolute nightmare to setup as windows 7 doesn't support usb3 on install.

Simple to add SSD and memory. The machine is setup for Windows and I wanted to install Linux on it. This took a while to sort via a flash drive. The wifi card took was reluctant to connect but now work well with Linux driver.

My Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse didn't work so I had to us my spare USB ones.
