13 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At 400 megahertz, the Intel BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age. The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of similar spec personal computers that were released one year ago range from 310MHz to 850MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 370MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than a year ago. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.7GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The Intel BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors (1,600 megahertz) amongst PCs of this age. Personal computers of this type and age have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,400MHz.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ has a Flash storage medium which is faster than most computers of this age and spec. Most medium processor core PCs that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. 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 desktop computers of this age and type the best storage speed is SSD and the worst is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Flash personal computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the MeLE PCG09[plb_2970011_price], the Zotac ZBOX PI320[plb_3151266_price], or the Asus CHROMEBIT[plb_3186800_price].

Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the Zotac ZBOX CI320 nano[plb_2496885_price] (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

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

This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ has a newer internal memory type than most desktop computers of this age and type. This desktop computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most PCs of this age and type have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The best internal memory type of all medium processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Supports One Compatible Memory Card

With a depth of only 111 millimeters, the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ is very shallow compared to most of the other personal computers that came out around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. When compared to other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ that we have checked the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of, the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 700 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 8 gigabytes, the Intel BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ's max internal memory supported processor is one of the smallest amongst comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ. The max internal memory supported processors of medium processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 64GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Burst Frequency

At only 700 megahertz, the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter burst frequency compared to most of the other computers that were released more than a year ago. The on-board graphics adapter burst frequencies of medium processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ range from 640MHz to 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

When compared to other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ that we have checked, the total storage capacity of the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ of only 32 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The average total storage capacity of similar spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ is 820GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 32GB total storage capacity PCs currently available including because of it's better review score, the MeLE PCG09[plb_2970011_price].

If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu Q520[plb_3102554_price] (128GB), or the DELL T3620[plb_3141561_price] (256GB) 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
