I bought this to be able to stream and record UK TV. I had been slightly worried that its Celeron wouldn't be up to the job, I needn't have worried.
Running Windows8.1 with 4GB of RAM and an old laptop hard drive. Streaming via iPlayer or Filmon on a browser, via the Filmon windows application or through XBMC it hasn't been anywhere near 100% CPU.
Runs previously recorder iPlayer or Filmon downloads with no trouble.
I have had no problems with window resizing or accessing BIOS.

y nearly silent, have it sitting under TV and I can't hear it. Looks great, very small with good build quality.
Handles films and web browsing with ease, and can run some very undemanding games.
Only problem I had was not being able enter the BIOS if quick boot was enabled (BIOS version 25), and the reset jumper didn't work. Flashing BIOS v15 seemed to reset it.
Coming from an android TV stick, this is much much better.

This machine was purchased to use as a bedroom media centre to play content from my Tranquil BBS2 server. Installation was quick and simple (4gb crucial memory module, probably overkill for what I need really - and a spare laptop hard drive I had lying around). Installed the latest nightly of OpenElec as the current stables will not boot. System is fine and plays media fine over Wifi. The only complaint I have with this unit so far is the BIOS. As others have stated, the BIOS shipped with the unit requires immediate updating, but once updated I have been unable to get back into the BIOS due to Intels Visual Bios requiring monitors to support 1024x768 which both my TVs support but neither will display the visual bios. Hoping the next BIOS release fixes this issue

This machine is great for those who want a small machine, but also want some power for that machine. I was running a raspberry pi because i needed a machine on 24/7 that didn't use lots of power and also didn't take up lots of room. Over time i found the raspberry pi was a bit slow. I also wanted to have a domain controller that was constantly on. As the raspberry pi can't run windows i needed something else.
I have the NUC running a web/ftp server, domain controller & a VPN server and is still running fine. I have put an SSD in rather that a hard drive so that probably helps. I've only used 2GB of ram but its causing me no problems. My main worry was that it would grind to a halt running windows server but i was proved wrong.
The NUC is very quiet as well. I can't every hear it. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting something small, powerful, quiet and very energy efficient

I got this NUC to replace the older Celeron 847 based one I was using.
First issue with the DN2820 is getting the thing to boot up with a screen. It wouldn't work with my Dell 19" monitor with a HDMI to DVI lead. It wouldn't work with a Fujitsu 23" 1080p screen with HDMI to HDMI lead. Eventually I got it working with a 32" Toshiba TV.
Once I got a display, it wouldn't load Windows 7, hanging at the Windows splash screen.
So, eventually I flashed the BIOS and everything started working. The 15 BIOS shipped is pointlessly broken.
Also, the Wireless-N 7260 is the low-end single band one, so won't connect to the superior 5GHz band. I replaced the card with an old Dell DW1510, which works fine.
Once in Windows, the Intel display drivers don't allow screen resizing on this machine (the same drivers on the i3 Haswell NUC work fine).
I've reported these issues to Intel, so hopefully these issues will be cured soon.
All that said, performance is fine. I'm running Windows 7 Pro x64 with 2GB RAM and a 64GB Crucial M4 SSD. It plays 1080p BD rips perfectly across wifi using XBMC. XBMC's menus are sharp and snappy, WAY better than the old Celeron 847 NUC.
I'd recommend this machine if you're highly IT literate and are comfortable flashing BIOS, messing with drivers and the like. Intel will hopefully fix these issues soon.

W With some memory, an SSD drive and the XBMC OpenELEC distribution you have a great networked video player which will support most video types and will pass through high quality audio such as DTS, Dolby Digital etc. to your surround amp. Plenty of instructions for how to do it online.
