    NUC7I7BNH - Which storage disk is best for my use profile?

    CarlosLima

      Hello, I'm migrating my Intel NUC to the third version. I've always used the Intel NUC minipc exclusively as mediacenter, only to see the contents on the Kodi 18 Leia and as shared media server, using the Emby Server. I never use it to surf the internet or use suites as a usual pc.

       

      Well, I'm leaving the NUC6i5SYH, with 16GB of RAM and 120GB SSD, which I bought in August 2017 and I understand that it is a great machine, including I'm reviewing it in Brazil.

       

      Now I'm leaving for the NUC7i7BNH model (I prefer the higher model because I have more space for an SSD, for cooling and for being easier for resale.

       

      This new model I'm buying today will come with 32GB RAM and my question is on the storage disk.

       

      I am between the 250GB Samsung 850 PRO SSD and the 250GB M.2 Samsung EVO 960, these from the images below.

       

      So, I would like to know from Intel:

       

      1. Which is the best option for my use profile and for the template quoted?

       

      2. Is this M.2 model absolutely compatible with the NUC model I am getting?

       

      Thank you again for your attention.

       

      Success and greetings from Brazil.

       

      Thanks very much.
