I really like them! They're great little machines; I had one of the M.2 SSD failure with an Intel drive, but Intel was outstanding to deal with and swapped it out promptly at no cost to me. Other than that, it's been rock solid. I think as I replace the older Gen6 HPs 1U servers, I'll begin to just use NUCs for my homelab.
