If you have a 4K TV and are looking to future-proof your setup a bit, I suggest you look at HEVC hardware decoding as another important factor. I wish I did a bit more research before committing to the NUC. Have a look at this article:
My NUC (5i5RYK) can’t handle smooth playback of 4K HEVC files, even at 30Hz! It’s fine if you only need a slick 1080p setup, but not 4K. Even if I manage to get the adapter working (which I seriously doubt), I’m still going to have an issue when 4K HEVC vids become the standard. I’m probably going to get rid of the NUC in favour of a beefier HTPC build with an Nvidia GTX 960 to get me there. That’s just my 2 cents.
