Excellent machine, use mine as a media server running plex. Paid £150 for it 8 months ago.

When using the machine does it perform better than you expected?(SSD used or not?)
I'm no CPU genius but I'm used to an i5 windows or i7 rMBP. My uses would PLEX, Kodi & some networking projects on it. May even use it as a WDS.

I got mine from a deal on here a while ago.if memory serves me right there is a updated chip on it I think it's 2830.

This is ideal for a HTPC but a bit slow for using anything stress wise.

If you are thinking of putting windows 8 on it there is a setting you have to change in the bios to get it to boot.

Edit.
Put a ssd in and changed the wifi card definitely performs better under windows 8

Can you use one of those logitech k wireless keyboards with these?

This is similar to the Gigabyte Brix N2807, but the Brix has Intel Quick Sync and it's fanless too. It runs really well (mines running 24/7) and will run at around 51°c. Add in some memory and a 64GB SSD and it'll cost you just £145.43.

I found this mini keyboard + touchpad to actually be amazing for these systems.

The latest NUC N2820s actually have N2830 CPUs in (which do have Quick Sync), although there's no way to tell as the model number is the same :-(

The other plus point of the NUC is that it has an on-board IR sensor which is quite useful for HTPC applications.

Both suffer from not supporting HDMI passthrough of the HD audio formats (DTS MA and DD True HD) under Windows.

There wasn't such an option when I bought my Brix unfortunately, so I guess it's a lucky dip for them who buy the NUC :)

When I was deciding between the NUC and the Brix I did actually consider the IR sensor, but honestly with the Rii mini keyboard + touchpad you can use the arrow keys, enter key and back key to control stuff like Kodi perfectly. There's a button to make the whole thing glow too, so it's great even if you're in the dark.

I'd say that they're both really good systems either way, but I do prefer the appearance of the Brix. It seems more modern looking to me, but that's just a personal preference.

It actually performs pretty well, I just use it for Web browsing plex media player/server and a file server. Transcodes 1080p fine for one client or 720p for two simultaneously. It's on 24/7. Currently using a standard 2.5HD will get an ssd soon.

NowTV are a good option for players (I have 2 of them) but note that they are only 720p.

Just seen the MSI Wind with the more powerful Celeron 1037u CPU is £100 right now on Amazon should you not be put off by the slightly bigger size and shape. It's quite a bit more powerful than the n2830 and is close to the i3 performance used in NUC's. LINK

The one review says it's hard to dismantle though.

And if that meets your needs then great. I did look at those but decided that I wanted a fully useful computer. I occasionally use office online and some file management and ftp clients also. Now TV is nice and simple though for non-technical users :)

actually steam streaming is easily possible with integrated Intel hd graphics. Main constraint is network speed really so plug in an Ethernet cable

i have one of these running openelec kodi 15, on a slim fit usb3, with an xbox media remote, its a really good xbmc device, however the amazon fire tv is less than half the price, and just as good.. new mini pcs are being launched, with windows, so i cant see this as a good value media player, anymore, as once you factor in the costs of getting it running.. needs ram 1.35v and a hard drive, ssd or standard or usb 3 if using it as a media centre..

I think they have slightly different purposes depending on what you want to do.

With the PIPO X7 you can't change anything so you're stuck with the 32GB eMMC, a weaker Z3736F CPU, no wireless N, no USB 3.0 and 2GB of RAM. If you're happy with that spec though and want Windows 8.1 then it will save you a lot of money.

good point, having used the linx tablets over Christmas with that spec, they run very well indeed, i am going to stick a 240 ssd and windows on my nuc, to see how it is as a general purpose pc,

On my Brix I needed to use an ethernet cable so that Steam would stream correctly. You really need to play around with the quality settings to get it working well.

If the Cpu in this has inboard Intel HD graphics then it will work yes, I just want sure if it had gpu on the die also. Thats pretty good price if it has Intel HD gpu on the same die, not bad at all :)

Surprisingly good Plex outcome for a Passmark CPU performance of 1003/1023 (N2820/N2830) - although it depends what actual transcoding is going on of course. Plex recommend C2D at 2.4ghz for 1x1080p which implies the need for a Passmark score of 1540+ rather than 1003. I had been looking for 2955U or, better yet, Core M 5Y70 :)

looking around at things like this for set top usage, as lot's of people above seem to have done. But all in all, thinking that this would work just as well, without having to add ram, storage or OS

Actually you can - but you have to ask the supplier for the code printed on the outside of the box. You're looking for SA# H22962-103 for the N2830. If you check out my post here from when Amazon were selling it for £92.98 there is a bit more explanation.

Still rubbish. struggles to play HD videos. A linx 7 inch tablet runs 1.5 times faster (Tested!) and can actually play HD videos and has a mini HDMI port! Only costs £60!

Tested using Intel burn test and compared GFLOPS readings.

So the guleek I posted should be fine? tis essentially a linx without touchscreen (and an extra GB ram) isn't it.

"Normally in Stock" is their code for "We have no stock" I deduce from previous experience.
