I was looking for a streaming media player for my tv in beedroom i was considering many option like apple tv, asus o play ,xtreamer amkette evo tv. All were in price range of 8-10k . But i came to know about this product while searching for htpc . Reviews were good .but i was skeptical about its performance .but it does it job without any hicupps. Those considering htpc mainly for watching movies should consider it .but it cant be used for playing games . I streamed 10gb 1080p movie over lan. It did it without any problem. Price. Nuc kit. -9000, ram 4gb-3000, hard disk old. Overall its a great value

no i didnt check it , but important reason i inclined towards mini pc was its low power consumption, fullblown pc which i used to run 24/7 for downloading

Have not used the Intel NUC but have used Zotac and loved it.

Only con though is the pricing... terribly overpriced in India especially with HD graphics and i5 processor if you want more power.
