4.0 out of 5 stars Great stubble shaver., 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this to replace my old i stubble 7890u that went MIA.

After reading some reviews i was hesitant to buy but honestly the cut is no different as i found my old shaver just a week after i bought the 7895u plus (sods law) the memory feature is so useful i never have to mess with settings just turn it on it adjusts to my last setting automatically and when i turn it off it reset to 0.4mm.

If you expect to pick one of these up and get a even shave of the first few passes you will be disappointed because it does not work like that to get a good uniform cut you will spend a good 10-15 min going over your face. Around your neck it will miss those long flat hairs so you will need to finesse around there. Before you shave give the blades a good dose of oil and let it run for a few min and soak up the drippings.
All in all i like it as a clean shave makes me look like a out of proportion baby.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better., 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this to cater to my never ending gadget collection like ps4 controller,tablets,phone,wireless keyboards.

On the face of the box the packaging is simple and provides great protection for the charger as a huge box is not needed, the unit it self is very nice upon first opening it the unit feels well built with a soft smooth rubber coating, the unit is sturdy no creaking or anying solid.

One huge gripe i have is the annoying whine it emits when charging something like my phone or tablet which makes it impossible to use when i go bed, a huge disappointment as it feels such a well built product to be let down by this and i find coil whine an unforgivable thing.

The whine does not mean it will blow up it is more than often a poor quality coil that is vibrating but from a other wise solid feeling unit this is defiantly a huge scratch on a otherwise flawless paint job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better., 12 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So i got this unit use for a htpc as the form,size,features were what i needed. After ordering a few other models i had a big problems with heat (far beyond what is acceptable at idel) after a bit of research i found intel was up to their old trick of using really cheap thermal paste that dries up so the heat is not being drawn from the cpu to the heat sync as efficiently as it could be.

The unit is easy to build and everything is accessible to install even with my big hands tho getting the lid off can be tricky. First thing i noticed the fan was louder than you would expect i would border on annoyingly loud but a quick fan tune in the bios has the unit inaudible at 3ft and is certainly not audible when a movie is playing.

The mini hdmi is annoying and i would have preferred intel to use a standard hdmi cable in its place as i needed to then buy a new cable.

If you are looking to plug and play this is not the pc for you but if you are willing to tweak settings and set it up it has the capability to become a really good htpc or mini desktop pc, i could have built a cheaper one myself but the footprint would have been much larger (you are paying a premium for the form).

The cons

Price is really high for what it is as when you are done you are paying just under the price of a mac mini.
Noise the fan is really loud out the box and can be distracting at times.
Bad thermal paste that causes the cpu to run hotter.

Pros

Makes a great htpc
Small footprint
Once you down clock the fan its in audible (the temps even with the down clocked fan are safe)
It is not out of place in a living room,bedroom or were ever you want it.

The unit has room to improve but is more than acceptable for my needs and people looking for a small pc and is near silent after a bit of tweaking.

So after setting up the mini pc as a htpc i can say its a nice little computer, you can build a pc for less but you can not get a unit this small. Its a great pc but it is louder than what you would think people say if you are 3ft away you can not hear it but that is not true its louder than my i7 macbook pro but a quick bios fan change fixes that rather quickly all in all its a nice pc but its pricy.

If you are someone looking for a small htpc,small pc its a good choice but the nuc needs some revisions.
Pros
small
simple
makes a good htpc

Cons
loud
runs hot
expensive

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid if you want to play ONLINE WITH MATES., 25 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trials Fusion (PS4) (Video Game)
Got this game to play with my mates (like with the last trials game) the main draw was the online multiplayer so having had a lot of fun on the last game via online multiplayer i had no second thoughts about buying the newer version with a "nextgen multiplayer" this is were the game loses ALL appeal.

After months of promising to bring the multiplayer out as it needed more time the developers announce that they will not be bringing out the online multiplayer (which is safe to say the main reason it sold as many copies as it did). The bait and switch is becoming too common in the gaming industry with aliens colonial marines(dumb down graphics,dumb ai) watchdogs graphics dumbed down,trials making a big thing about the online experience then announcing 4 months after everoyne got it they will not be bringing online to this game....

If you are the person who has mates round your house to game this is a good game for you but if you are like the 99% of console gamers who play with people online who are from different countries,towns then avoid. If i could i would get a refund but thats not gonna happen.

Great game i loved it the dlc is crappy but the story is one of the deepest i have played in a while and left me screaming for a sequel. This game along is worth buying a ps4.

When you get about halfway you the story and life really takes off.
