Mike, this NUC comes with HDMI output only. Have you tried using another adapter or cable?
You could also try using a different monitor. We have seen this behavior recently, but it is because the HDMI monitor does not support a resolution of
1024x768. You won’t be able to access the BIOS or have video when using that resolution.
The cable is very important, so is you are able to find an HDMI cable make sure is 1.3. or 1.4a.
Also, make sure you have selected DVI on the monitor.

I agree with your "good user experience" statement. In over 10 years of building systems, I've never run into a system that was as fussy as the NUC. Mine is mostly running as it should, but there's still more to be desired.
I ran into the same issue you have, but my NUC is a D54250WYK. The solution was odd. Initially, I ran the following chain of MiniHDMI to HDMI adapter > HDMI cable > HDMI to DVI adapter > DVI Input, leading to the "out of range" issue.
The following combinations "solved" the problem:
1) MiniHDMI to HDMI adapter > HDMI to DVI adapter > DVI cable > DVI Input
2) MiniHDMI to HDMI adapter > HDMI to DVI adapter/cable (all in one) > DVI Input
I'm awaiting an all-in-one miniHDMI > DVI adapter/cable to hopefully solve an unrelated pesky issue (https://communities.intel.com/thread/51866
). I'm fairly certain this type of cable will solve your particular issue.
After trying a few more DVI monitors I finally succeeded to circumvent the problem with my HDMI Monitor at work.
Just one little glitch: when I upgraded to Bios version 034 and the dialog appeared asking "Do you want to upgrade to BIOS version ... now " the system froze.
After 10 min I reset the system and luckily everything was still working.
In a second attempt the bios upgrade work well.
Now the fun part of installing Debian comes.
I'm glad that worked.
