Intel NUC (early 2015 model) review

Intel NUC DN2820FYKH review


How cheap is too cheap?

Cheap, quiet, well designed ; Tiny efficient power supply ; IR receiver ; Three-year warranty

Underpowered CPU/GPU ; Poor expansion capability

Consumer review by: G-Donor (

Awesome in a Small Package


This works great as a HTPC or a full PC on the road if a laptop or tablet isn't your thing

Amazingly fast boot with the SSD ; Suprisingly powerful for low power i3 ; Graphics are decent to play most games on low/medium ; Small, and easy to move and carry around in storage

None for its size or purpose
