Heres an opportunity to buy what is basically good as new kit with 1yr warranty remaining.

I have 1x Intel NUCs for sale.
The NUC in question was purchased to run J-river media center to play flacs etc
but its a project that never really took off. Machine is powerful enough to decode
sacd and bitstream in realtime, even multichannel. but not in use so surplus to my needs.

This machine has probably not even seen 20hrs of use.

Im in the I.T trade but bought this from my suppliers for personal use, so im the original owner, the condition of all can be considered good as new.

Works well as a full blown desktop pc, a media center,htpc or any other use.

Item: Intel NUC 5i5RYH  -  Intel® Core™ i5-5250U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.70 GHz)
Age: 2yrs, purchased 8/2015
Warranty: 1yr remaining till 8/2018
Condition: 10/10 Very Good Condition, packaging still has its plastic, so does nuc
Location: Cape Town
Reason: Hifi upgrade-itis
Shipping: Postnet.  At buyer's risk and expense following cleared payment.
Collection: By arrangement following cleared payment.
Price: R6500.00
Link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/boards-kits/nuc/kits/nuc5i5ryh.html

Other: Ram - highend corsair vengeance ddr3/8gb kit (lifetime warranty)
Ssd: Kingston sMS200s3 120gb, 550mb/s read, 520mb/s write. 3yrs warranty (1yr remaining)

Effectively, the whole unit still has 1yr warranty remaining. with the exception of the ram
which is lifetime warranty.

Price: R6000.00 (current retail would be just over 10k for the above, the above components are
still current and available brand new)

Also available: Seagate PRO 600 enterprise class SSD 240gb (with warranty till 12/2018) + R1500.00
*the NUC can also take a 2.5" drive. so add this to the above for a powerhouse nuc.

Everything sells at the right price. If something doesn't sell either people don't think its worth it for what you get or can do with it.
Some products are niche market and the economy isn't that great either. Its getting towards december and its half way through the month which probably also plays a part. I have seen great prices that still don't sell.
Push harder than yesterday if you want tomorrow to be different.

If it had 4k/HDMI2 output I would have been all over it like white on rice... But sadly that's the nature of Moore's Law... 
I'm so bright my dad calls me sun

it provisionally sold on friday pending payment on monday.

it does do 4k. but obv not hevc265 which is what hdmi 2.0 is needed for.
hevc265 is anyway just "compression" to get more video on less media.
ive done traditional 4k video at 60fps no problem on this!
