The build quality of the DN2820FYK overall was quite good. The only complaint was that one of the screws for the 2.5-inch drive bay arrived stripped (and was very easily stripped more) so I ended up having to bend and break the SSD/HDD bracket in order to detach it from the system for installing the OCZ SSD.

After assembling the Bay Trail NUC, the system quickly booted up and the Intel Visual BIOS was accessible.

Linux users will be pleased to know that the NUC Kit can be easily flashed without having to mess with a FreeDOS/MS-DOS boot disk or any Windows utility. After downloading the latest BIOS image from the Intel web-site, it was quickly and easily flashed to the latest image.

So overall, from the hardware side the Intel DN2820FYK NUC with Celeron N2820 is nice, especially given the $130 USD price tag of this palm-sized barebones system.

Now onto the Linux aspect of our testing...
