What customers say about "Key Specs"
Intel CS125 (STK1AW32SC) Computer with Intel Atom x5 Processor and Windows 10
  • The speed of the processor isn't going to knock your socks off by any means but it seems to do an adequate job of performance.
  • For the price and considering the features and speed, and the fact that WIndows 10 is included, it can't be beat for value.
  • Tab reload happens if you have more than 3 tabs open, given this thing's 2GB RAM, I'm not surprised. Use about 2 apps at the same time and you won't have any problem with lag. I've used 3 systems apps without any major problems with speed thanks to the 32GB SSD inside.
  • It's pretty good given the price! Mind you, just buying a Windows 10 licence alone would be close to the cost of this device. It is a bit slow and laggy which I think is due to the lack of RAM (only 2 GB). So if you expect quick response, buy the faster M3 or M5 models which have 4GB RAM
  • The on board storage isn't much but you can add a micro SD card to install all your applications and save your files to.
  • If you need to do anything with a lot of processing power (e.g. games, photo/video editing, video streaming) this is not your best choice. Mine lags sometimes but it recovers after a second and has not crashed yet. It is ideal for lightweight web browsing and Office programs.
  • I got it for streaming movies on my tv. Constant loading lag while streaming on multiple sources.
  • Kinda slow for what the specs are. I didn't expect a full fledged PC but this thing is about as quick as an 8 year old laptop.
Intel CS125 (BOXSTK1AW32SCR) Compute Stick with Intel Atom x5 processor and Windows 10
  • Its so good, that Im considering to use it as my Media server, due to its very low power usage and good processing power & wireless connection speed.
  • 2 GB of RAM is enough for me since I will be using it for applications that doesn't need much RAM.
  • With it's minimum 2mb of RAM and 32gb of storage I was still able to easily upgrade to Win10 PRO 32bit enabling RDT and other functions not in Home version.
  • It isn't perfect, though; I'm disappointed to still see only 2GB of RAM, which gets used up pretty quickly when using Chrome as your browser, or more advanced MS Office functions.
  • Just don't expect to run photoshop or any processor/ram hungry app as this product wasn't made for that purpose.

What customers say about "Features"
Intel CS125 (STK1AW32SC) Computer with Intel Atom x5 Processor and Windows 10
  • You get Windows 10 in a "computer" that you can put in your pocket and use with any screen that has an HDMI port
  • I mounted an old 32" 1080P TV to the wall and plugged this into the HDMI port. I then bought a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse combo. this is perfect for my needs an came with Windows 10.
  • This Intel also has 2 USB ports that work well and seem to be powered sufficiently to support an additional Wi-Fi device and wireless keyboard/mouse combo.
  • The system also works with Bluetooth keyboards
  • This also has a micro SD card slot that will take up to 128 gigs.
  • Works well with 4K TV. But there are still some problems with their Bluetooth implementation. Using a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse at the same time will cause everything to lag and get unresponsive.
  • These guys work decently well, they are understandably slow. My biggest beef with them is one seems to overheat after 24 hrs and then seize up. Works fine on a restart, the other one works fine.
  • For basic stuff OK. For streaming videos, it's too weak.
Intel CS125 (BOXSTK1AW32SCR) Compute Stick with Intel Atom x5 processor and Windows 10
  • Latest Compute Stick is great with Windows 10 home 32 bit installed.
  • Works Great if you like Windows 10 and its very portable so I can take it with me to hotels and use their WIFI and plug it into their TV (HDMI).
  • It can be hidden nicely behind a TV and works well with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
  • I'm using a bluetooth mouse/keyboard that works from 20ft away with the NUC from behind a closed door.
  • Very happy with performance except still have problem accessing/activating Windows 10 Store and other windows tiles. Briefly opens and then closes.
  • First, it had unreliable and slow WiFi, as well as issues with conflicts between multiple devices over Bluetooth.
