Intel NUC5i7RYH Broadwell-U Iris NUC Review

 

Over the last couple of years, mini-PCs in the ultra-compact form factor (UCFF) have emerged as one of the bright spots in the troubled PC market. Intel's NUC systems are one of the most popular in this category. The lack of graphic prowess in the NUCs...

The final aspect that we talk about today is pricing. The NUC5i7RYH seems to be available on pre-order for

Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) 5i7RYH Review and Ratings

 

An impressively speedy, compact DIY PC, this "Broadwell" Core i7 PC kit pumps up the graphics and supports two storage drives. It faces stiff competition, however, in Alienware's cheaper Alpha, which sports spunkier Nvidia graphics.

Very compact ; Includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ; Reduced-size AC adapter ; Supports both M.2 and 2.5-inch drives ; Three-year warranty

Pricey once you add RAM, storage, and an OS ; Noticeable fan noise when gaming ; Other compact PCs deliver better gaming performance for less

We like what Intel is doing with the NUC platform, making it more mainstream and friendlier to consumers by including wireless connectivity out of the box, and making the power cable more streamlined. And considering the modest increase in height, we...

First, I'll start with the components I used. N82E16820148956 - Crucial MX200 M.2 500GB SATA 2 x N82E16820148733 - Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) OS - Debian Linux SID With these components, the NUC is about 2 times faster for...

1. Fast ; 2. Compact ; 3. Works with both M2 and 2.5" hard drives ; 4. Bluetooth and Wifi included

1. Fan is audible ; 2. Bluetooth and Wifi are soldered down

Powerful Little Unit

 

I have worked both with the NUC and the BRIX from Gigabyte and, with this gen (based on Intel's 5th gen procs), I prefer the NUCs from Intel over the BRIX for a number of reasons. After putting each together I noticed the construction and layout of the...

Compact, Powerful, Easy Setup, Can Play Games

Consumer review (newegg.com)

This PC died on me, and this is a common problem

 

Buy something else.

Ultra small and quiet, high performance for such a tiny size

It seems the Intel NUC PCs are just poorly-made or badly-designed or both. Search Google for Intel NUC won't turn on and you will find over 117,000 results ; My particular NUC died over just over a month of use. It won't turn on at all, and now I'm...

Fantastic Server

 

30W peak power consumption makes my wallet happy. Probably going to buy another unit.

I bought this as a cheap power efficient server to replace a loud 1U in my closet. I've been running Xenserver on it since day 1 and it's been amazing. Zero performance issues, even running 4 VM's under decent load. Super cool and no noise ; It's...

It uses a mini-hdmi connector and that wasn't mentioned in the newegg spec. Took an additional day to get up and running because I needed to buy an adapter

Too many issues to warrant buying

 

Its a nice size and is pretty solid

IR does not work, bios access issues, really serious boot issues where it just won't pick up the boot device, strangely dependant on what TV or monitor its plugged into to actually work. Check the forums and you will see many people with these sorts of...
