None anymore...
We have many of them at customers and they work as intended.

That said, there's only integrated graphics, you can't get a dedicated graphics card. Video editing is of course possible, but with a dedicated graphics card and at least two SSDs (one for the source files, one for the target files) you'll get much more performance for the price. You can even get a Mini-ITX-system with a dedicated high-end graphics card, plus it's upgradeable and has more space for HDDs so I'd say if you don't want a full tower but still massive power you should get a Mini-ITX-system.

I am looking into getting a Intel? NUC Kit NUC6i5SYH, the concept is very tempting.

Does anyone have experience with them?

The only demanding stuff it will be used for is video editing.

Edit: Nuc 6 with i5 or Nuc 5 with i7?

If your main aim is for something compact, I'd look at the Skull Canyon

The USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port will extend its lifespan by years.

And if you want to game with that thing, it'll be a great addition as you can plug something like a Razer Core through Thunderbolt
