Hi, I would like to convert from my rpi 3 to a proper NUC System. I don’t plan to run anything other than HA on it.
Now I’m deciding between to NUCs:
I know that both system probably will be “overpowered” for HA alone - with the i3 being the faster System, I guess.
However I more thinking about general quality and long-term 24/7 use.
The j5005 System has a lower TDP. But it seems to be quite picky about RAM and also Samsung SSDs?! Also it doesn’t support nvme SSDs.
The i3 has a higher TDP. But I guess is the more “modern” System. And it supports nvme SSDs.
So what to choose? Are those little nvme SSDs better for 24/7 then 2.5 SATA SSDs? Does the TDP difference really make a difference as well?
What system would you choose? Or would you recommand a different NUC?
