Some customer reviews of Intel NUC DC53427HYE

Most helpful reviews

Sebastian, Aberdeen IT Consultant

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Runs Windows 8.1 with VMWare Workstation 10
runs rather well with 16Gb RAM and 120Gb mSATA with 600Gb iSCSI serving 5 VM's

I like the fact that this little unit has 2x PCI (full size for mSATA and half height for other addons)
Bad points:
DOESN'T come with a clover leaf lead....

nothing really big but the inclusion of a £2 lead would have saved an item line
Overall rating 10.0
Value for money 10.0

Greg, Derby Unstereotypical linux geek

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Perfect device being used in my office, replacing the typical large towers.

The device is silent. The fans only come on when rendering 3D or watching HD movies, of which it is still very capable.

Running Ubuntu 13.04 with dual monitors, no problems installing, no problems with graphics. Worked as you'd expect a brand new laptop to work, apart from it isn't a laptop.
Bad points:
I wanted to look inside the case, but you have to snap some plastic legs off to get in - feels wrong.

Graham, Exeter Experienced technical user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
- It's tiny!
- Great for general usage / media content and light gaming
- Low power consumption
- Quiet, even when CPU/GPU are being hammered
- Annoys Wife if you repeatedly open/close the retail box (it plays the Intel theme)
Bad points:
- Little on the pricey side
- Requires more expensive mSATA SSDs
- HD4000 integrated GPU could use more 3D grunt
- Insufficient documentation on required accessories (ie. passive or active display port adapters required? I went with 'active' to be safe)
- No 3.5mm audio input/output jacks (requires you use an external USB sound card or HDMI audio)
Overall rating 9.0
Value for money 7.0
