RecommendReview by Gary Barnet
I initially contacted Gorite / Microsata via email with the pretense to find out some things about these, but primarily to find out about their customer service. They replied in less than 24 hours (which is very good given the time difference) and the service was excellent (always like to find out about the company when purchasing from overseas).
Purchased 2 of these lids on the 15th September with tracking and they were delivered, well packaged, on the 28th September - excellent postage time from the US to Australia and a low cost for such a quick time.
I fitted these to a 5th gen BOXNUC5i3RYH, and a 6th gen BOXNUC6I5SYH with no problems after watching the video on Microsata's product webpage, just had to use a set of needle-nose pliers to fit the cables due to my big fingers. Also found it easier to remove the NUC base and sata cables completely (with the 2.5" drive adapter) due to these hampering easy access to fit the cables, plus the USB 2.0 header is squashed down in the corner of the motherboard right near the sata headers.
I used a thin metal spludger to remove the original NUC lids - carefully going around the edge, lifting a little each time, until the lid just popped off.
The new lids just clipped in once I had them aligned correctly.
Once fitted, they have the same appearance compared to the original, the only difference is just a small bump through the middle of the lid from front to back with the USB 2.0 ports situated at the rear of the NUC.
When refitting the base, I had to ensure that all (both the sata and USB 2.0) cables were out of the way of the base's corner retaining screw.
Once fitted, they both worked straight away, without having to do anything else.
My two USB dual TV tuners work best in a USB 2.0 port in preference to a USB 3.0 port (for some unknown reason, several functions stop working, for example - scheduled recording), and the other two spare USB 2.0 ports were good for the two Logitech K830 unifying receivers used to operate both NUC's as HTPC's. Thus leaving all 4 original USB 3.0 ports vacant for other purposes. so these came in very handy.
If anyone requires extra USB ports, I highly recommend buying one of these.
