10 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The writer at one expert review site concluded that they would recommend this medium processor cores computer. This computer received a "Recommended" award from Legitreviews.com.

Intel Has Excellent Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

Intel is one of the top rated computer manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter base frequencys of computers of this type and age range from 200MHz to 850MHz. At 400 megahertz, the Intel NUC5PGYH has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of PCs that are a comparable age to the NUC5PGYH is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 5.2GB. At 8 gigabytes, the NUC5PGYH has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that have been around for a comparable time to the NUC5PGYH.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The slowest memory clock speeds supported by processor of personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the NUC5PGYH is 800MHz, the fastest is 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,500MHz. With a memory clock speeds supported by processor of 1,600 megahertz, the Intel NUC5PGYH has a quite fast memory clock speeds supported by processor compared to most of the other personal computers that are a comparable age to the NUC5PGYH.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The NUC5PGYH has a Flash storage media which is faster than most medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Most computers of this spec and age have an HDD storage media. Flash Drives store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive. Across all medium processor cores computers that were launched around the same time as the NUC5PGYH the best storage speed is SSD and the worst is HDD.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other Flash desktop computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple ME253[plb_2942369_price], the Intel NUC5PGYH[plb_3032870_price], and the Zotac ZBOX PI320[plb_3151266_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a desktop computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the Q520[pl_3102554_price] (SSD), or the P556[pl_3182333_price] (SSD) both from Fujitsu or the Lenovo P300 Tower[plb_2317908_price] (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on computers that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Supports One Compatible Memory Cards

The Intel NUC5PGYH has a greater number of compatible memory card than most personal computers that have been available for more than a year. The most commonly supported compatible memory cards is SD, but this compatible memory cards is not supported by this desktop computer. The compatible memory cardss SDXC are also supported by this personal computer.

Chart Edit

7.1 Audio Output Channels

The NUC5PGYH has a 7.1 audio output channels which is better than the 5.1 audio output channels found on most similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. The worst audio output of all medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the NUC5PGYH is 5.1 and the best is 8.1.

11 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)

The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of PCs of a similar age and spec to the NUC5PGYH is 500MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. When compared to other medium processor cores computers that were released one year ago that we have assessed, the NUC5PGYH's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of only 700 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 8 gigabytes, the NUC5PGYH has one of the smallest maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst similar spec PCs of this age. The average maximum internal memory supported by processor of personal computers of a comparable type and age to the NUC5PGYH is 64GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Burst Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter burst frequency of only 700 megahertz, the NUC5PGYH has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter burst frequency compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. Comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the NUC5PGYH have on-board graphics adapter burst frequencys of between 500MHz and 1,100MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter burst frequency is 950MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Internal Memory

Across all the medium processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the NUC5PGYH the internal memorys range from 2GB to 32GB, and the average internal memory is 7.7GB. The NUC5PGYH has one of the smallest internal memorys (only 2 gigabytes) amongst medium processor cores computers of this age.

There are a number of alternative 2GB memory desktop computers currently available which you might want to look at including the Acer Aspire XC-703[plb_2772409_price], the Intel NUC5PGYH[plb_3032870_price], or the Asus EB1036[plb_2671942_price] which has better reviews.

If this desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the Q520[pl_3102554_price] (4GB), or the Q920[pl_3214729_price] (4GB) both from Fujitsu or the Lenovo M800[plb_3194064_price] (4GB) which is also higher rated.

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

At only 32 gigabytes, the NUC5PGYH has a very small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that came out more than a year ago. The total storage capacitys of medium processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the NUC5PGYH range from 4GB to 3.6TB.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other 32GB total storage capacity personal computers and we think the Trekstor MiniPC W1[plb_3066209_price], the MeLE PCG09[plb_2970011_price], and the Intel NUC5PGYH[plb_3032870_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the ProDesk 400 G3 SFF[pl_3187993_price] (128GB), or the ProDesk 400 G2[pl_3202954_price] (128GB) both from HP or the Fujitsu Q520[plb_3102554_price] (128GB) which is also higher rated.

Bought for my Dad for mainly browsing the web...

Can replace Ram and add another HDD
Can play 1080p videos on YouTube
Smooth Windows 10 experience
Would be great for streaming Steam games
This is great for an HTPC. It has just enough power to breeze through 1080p mkvs (with MPC-HC), youtube, hulu, netflix, etc. The product is very easy to setup and build quality feels great
Only 16 gigs of available HDD space
Comes with only 2 gigs of ram
Only one ram slot
You may think the 2.5" SSD is optional but there was some Windows 10 upgrade available that required 11GB of space, and without the secondary drive available I wouldn't have even been able to fully up
