Great solution for turning a 4K TV into a full blown computer. Added this RAMKingston Technology HyperX Impact 32GB Kit (2x16GB) 2133MHz DDR4 CL13 260-Pin SODIMM Laptop Memory Module HX421S13IBK2/32And this HDSamsung PM961 256GB M.2 NGFF PCIe Gen3 x4, NVME Solid state drive SSD, OEM (2280) (MZVLW256HEHP-00000)Passmark score of system below.All components performed to spec. The weak link in the system is the 3D graphics. DirectX12 nearly grinds to halt.System is great for any non-gaming application. Size is great. Fan whines a bit, but only noticeable when the room is quiet. Didn't notice it when the TV is on.The mounting kit for a 100mm by 100mm VESA mount makes it perfect to marry with a TV or existing monitor.Would have given it 5 stars if the 3D graphics had performed better. The integrated Intel graphics are not up-gradable. Maybe a future driver release will improve 3D performance. Will adjust review if improvement is seen. 4One of my best purchases. I run this with VMwares free ESXi ... One of my best purchases. I run this with VMwares free ESXi virtualization solution. I run my entire test lab off of this one system. Currently this runs 2 Windows 2016 servers(domain controller, IIS) and 3 Linux servers (2 HAProxy, 1 content filter)In the past i have used full sized rack mount servers to run my lab but this little beats is so powerful that it can cover my need in a fraction of the space and without any of the noise.I have this running with an M2 drive and 32GB of ram. 5NUC Skull Candy with Thunderbolt compatible with RAZER CORE! This is one helluva micro form factor PC. It is about 1/3 the size of my ASUS VivoPC and way more powerful. I went with the 2x16GB SODIMMs, maxing out the memory to 32GB. I went with the Intel SSD6 500GB NVMe SSD for the hard drive to complete the build. I have been able to get it working with the RAZER CORE making this a great gaming PC as well without the bulk of a mini-Tower.Pros:- Small and powerful: The NUC is very capable of replacing any desktop and it is very portable.- Iris Pro 580: I am actually surprise on how well this GPU performed with games at the 4K resolution setting. The fan was on full blast during game play, but it did work with moderate graphics settings with the game.- Thunderbolt port: It is compatible with RAZER CORE!!! Just make sure to update the Thunderbolt driver to the latest that is available from Intel's website. I went with the ASUS GTX 1060 OC 6GB GPU and game play is pretty awesome. Also, the NUC fan does not go full blast during game play anymore, a definite plus.- Two NVMe slots: One for OS and the other for apps/data. Good options for storage before you need to plug an external USB 3.0 hard drive to it.- Up to 32 GB of RAM support: You can run VM clients on this if you wanted to.Cons:- More USB 3.0 ports: I could have used another two USB 3.0 ports in the back or a single USB 2.0 port in the front. The USB 2.0 port is for wireless keyboard/mouse since USB 3.0 seems to interfere with them. You will definitely want to invest in a USB 3.0 hub, especially if you plan to plug a BD/DVD reader to the NUC.- The fan is always on: They could be heard and are at full blast while running graphics intensive applications. Even the Bing's webpage (live) cam cause the fan to kick up. You might want to consider this if you want to use it for HTPC and maybe put in in an entertainment unit.- Along with the fan noise, the unit can generate a bit of heat. Not hot enough to be concerned or too hot to handle, but enough to not want to put it in an confined space without ventilation.- The NVMe performance seems to be adequate and not as fast compared to a PCIe NVMe adapter for NVMe SSDs. Using the same NVMe SSD on a HP EliteDesk 800 G2 (i7 6700U, 48GB RAM) versus this NUC, the HP desktop seemed faster. I do not have any captured performance metrics, so this is perception. Maybe someone can prove this if not already done.Overall, I am very pleased with the Intel NUC Skull Candy. I was comparing this to the Gigabyte and ZOTAC offerings and very glad I made this choice since it had the Thunderbolt port. I think I paid more in the end when comparing the NUC+RCORE+GTX1060, being the major differences, I got the latest hardware and the flexibility to upgarde the GPU in the future.Did I mention that it is compatible with the RAZER CORE! 5Great form factor, ho hum price This latest iteration of Intel's NUC series is well formed, if pricey. The device was smaller and heavier than I expected - appropriate for the NUC series and the power draw of this unit. I have purchased Intel NUCs in the past for fanless, special purpose x86-based systems. Such systems were not suitable as a desktop replacement. I bought this system as a small form factor desktop for light development activities, web browsing, email, and very light gaming (mostly of the retro form).I paired this system with 32 GB of Patriot RAM and a 256 GB Samsung 950 Pro M.2 256 GB drive. Installation was easy - remove four screws, install memory, remove one screw, install drive, replace screws. The power brick is quite large, maybe 80% the size of the unit, and much larger even than my Macbook Pro's charger. A necessary evil it sits out of sight and mind.The first thing I did was update the firmware to the latest revision using a bootable USB drive. It is interesting that DOS can still be used after all these years to update things like the BIOS/Firmware. I received the unit with revision 0037 and updated to the latest current revision (0041). Uneventful setup. The firmware is not as feature rich as most "gaming" system firmware; you are in Intel's world and you play by their rules.I run Arch Linux on the NUC. Setup was straightforward and most hardware seems well supported, although I do not currently use the wireless connectivity provided. The EFI setup environment is similar to past versions, and configuring it was straightforward and minimal. After so many years of setting up systems using BIOS, MBRs, and bootloaders (and having only setup two EFI-based systems in the past) I had the read through my distribution of choice's documentation carefully. Once setup and installed I had no further issues.The graphics for the Iris Pro seem reasonably well supported in Linux. The KDE Plasma desktop looks as one would expect and performance is on par with my desktop class system running a similar OS setup. In general I had no issues. The fan noise is typically quiet and under load noticeable but not too distracting. Plenty of connection options provide future expandability.The only gripe I have is the current price point. The form factor is great, but once you factor in the cost of RAM and an M.2 SSD, you can easily purchase an equivalent or better desktop system more suited for gaming. Four stars because I really like the product but the total cost is not competitive for similar hardware. 44K Plex Media Player The primary purpose for this product was to be an HTPC in the form of a Plex Media Player, playing media files off my Home Computer's Plex Media Server. The ram and nvme ssd I purchased were: Ballistix Sport LT 8GB Single DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) SODIMM 260-Pin Memory - BLS8G4S240FSD and Samsung 960 EVO Series - 250GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6E250BW).Windows InstallationOf course with Windows 7 being my one true love I created a bootable usb and started the installation. However, keyboard and mouse would not work. Google search indicated that Windows 7 had no support for USB 3.0. So I made the modifications necessary to support USB 3.0. Then I discovered, of course, no nvme support and it could not detect the hard drive. Losing patience, I just downloaded the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and created a Windows 10 bootable usb. My first attempt to install Windows 10 failed, I got the "windows could not set the offline locale information error". I rebooted, deleted the partitions, and tried again. It worked the second time.Harmony SupportBeing the fool I was without thoroughly looking through the spec sheet, I bought a Flirc -- to be compatible with my Harmony remote. But of course, the Skull Canyon has an IR port already. After I installed the driver, I was able to look up this exact NUC model number and add it as a device. From there everything worked perfectly.Plex Media PlayerJust wanted to note that there is a difference between the Plex Media Server and Plex Media Player. Make sure to download the Plex Media Player for a more Home Theater like experience.Hdmi 2.0By now infamous Hdmi 2.0 fallout has ended. My device already had the Hdmi 2.0 firmware update. Just make sure to be plugged in directly to the TV. I was connected to a Octava 4 x 1 HDMI Audio switch with ARC and Optical Audio output and it would only display 4k at 30hz. There's a firmware update for that switch to support 4k, so I'll fiddle with that later. And also I had problems with surround sound. Connecting directly to the TV resolved my issue.So! No lag, works as desired. I also have a Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus, Touchpad Keyboard for Internet-Connected TVs which works very well with this setup. 5Amazing Machine Amazing Machine with one major inconvenience. I'm in love with this machine and it is very powerful and was tested on heavy Autocad files that demands a strong machine and the same files almost failed to even open on any other machine around with normal high specs. However, the inconvenience is with the screws. Where you open to insert the Rams and Storage the plastic piece around the screw inside it shatters and breaks into pieces easily no matter how soft you are. 5if you have 1000 to drop in a pc, why not this one had it for months now using it for school. have 32 gb crucial ram, samsung 960 pro 256 gb m.2, hooked up to a sony 4k. set up was kind of a pain on the 4k, and hdmi 2.0 doesnt work but it will still output 4k, just not very natural. everything else went smooth when i set up windows 10. have the razer turret mouse/keyboard combo and it works well. i can play starcraft and civ, while listening to music, and working on homework. it really starts blowing heat when i do that. best mini pc for your money if you can afford it. altogether around 1200 for my setup not including the tv. 4BLISTERING FAST... (RAM & SSD sold separately) UPDATE> This product SUCKS WIND! Fifth time I have had NO SOUND ISSUE with the ALSA Mixer under Linux. Had problems with Windows 7 and 10 as well. As good as this product is, do NOT expect to EVER hear CONSISTENT sound out of this unit. Linux support from Intel is NON-EXISTENT. And forget Windows, unless you are the ORIGINAL CUSTOMER, and it is well within the warranty period. (IF YOU BUY IT HERE, YOU ARE NOT IN WARRANTY). CONSIDER NO RAM AND NO HDD, IT SHOULD ONLY SHOULD COST AT MOST $250.00... REMEMBER IT IS A BARE BONES SYSTEM, SO DEDICATED SOUND CARD, NO DEDICATED VIDEO CARD, NO RAM NO HARD DRIVE, AND NO SUPPORT EITHER...Con: Initially, I had HDMI audio driver issues issues under Linux 18 (UPDATE: I STILL DO), but after a couple tries, things finally worked great! (NOT ANY MORE)Pros: You need A seatbelt, if you do like me & max out the RAM & install a 1TB Solid-State Drive, then run it under Linux Mint...The benchmarks are well worth the effort!!! (IF YOU DO NOT LIKE WATCHING VIDEOS OR LISTENING TO ANY AUDIO AT ALL)From unplugged to FULL COLD BOOT, WI-FI, Internet connected & fully functional open web-page IN UNDER 30 Seconds! BUT STILL NO SOUND. NO SUPPORT AND AN OVERPRICED BARE BONES KIDS KIT THAT IS NOT EVEN GOOD FOR GAMING... 1Intel has done it againg !!!!! Great little pc, specially if you paired it with 32gb ram and 2 Samsung drives in raid 0. Hard core gamers , I should advice to stay away from this machine for now, may in the near future when the new external video cards come out then will be worth it of gamers choice.Everybody else will be super happy with it. Can handle anything you through at it including any tasks or work related jobs and will do it super fast. What I like best its the diminutive size of this thing. You can place it any where on your desk or if your monitor has a vesa mount you can actually mount it on the back of the monitor.It's not fair that some people compare this with a full flesh gaming rig with Intel a core 7 6950X and 980GTX graphics card set up. For pit sake this this little thing has the size of my 980GTX video card !!!!I definitely will recommend it for a main pc or desk top replacement NOT for gamers. 5Keep it up Intel... I've been using this Intel NUC Skull Canyon for over a year now. It works great for my computing environment. Here's a breakdown...Pros:* Portable, but powerful* Enough connectivity including USB 3.0, DP, HDMI* Thunderbolt 3 - connection works with external GPU* 6th Gen Core i7-6770HQ - I ran it on 3.27 GHz* DDR4 RAM - I have 32GB SODIMMsCons* Price* Barebones is ok for me, but price needs to come down* Noise. The fan makes horrible noiseSo far I have no issues. Been using the NUC for over a year now, as primary work driver. 4
