My first review to help out other newbies wading into system building i.e. someone who hates the cable company charging ridiculous fees for a commodity cable box that they actually want to do something about it. I purchased this to build out a HTPC.

Bottom line - this is not the same as getting a box from dell. Be prepared to spend some time ironing kinks out. BUT if you are willing and able (including tolerance for the risk of not having a single vendor to go after if you have issues), this is the best small form factor system with i3 processor that you can build/find. My total cost was ~400 (NUC + SSD (60 GB) + Memory (4 gb) + thunderbolt ethernet adapter + Windows 7). You can get rid of windows 7 but note that there is a multitude of issues with cablecard/DRM that linux based solutions (Mythbuntu etc) will (probably) never support. Also you might find a Acer Revo i3 for the same price but with base windows 8 -- this requires you to spend additional $$ to upgrade to windows 8 pro + WMC if you want to use WMC with cablecard support.

As other posters have said - you need mSata (MydigitalSSD works fine), memory (kingston worked for me) to have a working system. Optional (well, not really): Wifi card or USB to ethernet (only upto 480 Mbps as this has only USB 2) or Apple thunderbolt to ethernet adapter (GigE). See links at end for exact SKUs and other helpful links. I am also assuming you have a monitor/TV, keyboard & mouse somewhere and you don't need to buy them.

Steps are as follows:
1) install memory, msata. Optional: install the wireless card. This goes below msata.
1.1) Go to intel site to request a thermal pad. This is a fix from Intel for heating issues that affect msata. I did not have any issues without the pad but ordered to be safe.

I've been building computers for 25 years and something I've seen all too often is rumors spread quickly and thoroughly. Now many reviewers mention the overheating problem and nearly all will tell you that's what they read, but their's doesn't. I spent hours researching this problem and placed my order, do the same and you will too.

I am using this device as a media center and it is very, very fast. mSata of 32GB (Ubuntu just use 5GB), 8GB of RAM and a Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400.
The bad? It is true it doesnt bring the power cable (the mickey mouse or cloverleaf power cable) and the MSata drives are still expensive. But this little machine rocks!

Initially, I ran Ubuntu 13.10 Linux on my NUC.

Subsequently, I increased RAM to 8 GB and installed MacOS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and did a software update to 10.9.2.

As long as you tell the customization tools that the NUC is really a MacMini, it will accept the 3217U processor with its integrated Intel Graphics HD4000 as such, and you will have full MacOS X functions, including all video resolutions (I use 1900x1200x32) and acceleration (CI/QE).

I connected my 23" VGA monitor through the mini Display Port through a widely available adapter (about $10), and the keyboard and mouse is connected through a widely available 4-port KVM-A switch. I do not at present use HDMI for anything, although there are widely available VGA adapters (also about $10).

I used my own DSDT for maximum MacOS X compatibility.

Was kind of skeptical whether I could run xbmc and plex off this unit but I was pleasantly surprised. Using xbmc and even heavy skins like aeon nox and MQ this unit plays anything I throw at it, though I haven't tried 3D content yet on the device. The xbmc gui is quite responsive and the integrated graphics help out substantially when playing high-bitrate videos.

Using it as a plex media server works as well, it can transcode 1080p videos handily but I haven't tried more than a couple streams at the same time.

Like many other people have noted you'll need to buy a couple other components to be able to use the nuc on the first day:

1. Power cord
2. Ram (at least 2gb I would recommend)
3. Storage device (mSata drive or usb stick of at least 8gb)
