Reviews
Intel NUC Kit, NUC8I5BEK, i5-8259U, DDR4, M.2 PCIe/SATA, Iris Plus Graphics 655, USB 3.1 Gen2, Thunderbolt3, Barebone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant performance in a small package. If there was ever proof that size isn’t everything, this is it. I bought the 8th gen i5 NUC to use as a home server, and I couldn’t be happier. So much performance for the price, and with m.2 ssd’s falling in value, it’s fairly easy to kit it out with a load of storage whilst keeping the small form factor. Although I have my home media services running through docker for Windows, I’ve ended up keeping the NUC plugged into my tv to double up as a Steam machine since the integrated graphics can easily handle PS3-era games and most emulators. The only major downside to the NUC is that the fan is fairly noisy, and you might be able to hear it over the TV speaker in the quiet bit of a film if it isn’t stored in a cupboard. Furthermore, I’d recommend budgeting to kit it out with 16gb of ram, since the 8gb I opted for seems to be a limiting factor for my media server/steam machine purposes. Overall, a very happy customer.
