When it comes to strage, M.2 is the way to go for consumers looking for speedy performance. Intel's 360GB 530 series drive performs at the edge of what a single SATA6G port provides, however, Samsung's XP941 256GB performs magnificently. The M.2 slot is performing like a 4x PCI-E 3.0 M.2 slot on a motherboard.

Network performance of the NUC5i5RYK is decent; the Intel NIC provides network throughput like a desktop, wireless AC performs modestly compared to some other AC devices, and wireless N is much faster than the LIVA X.
