Summary: This processor is a basic dual core processor. It works as advertised. It came in a standard padded mailing envelope with bubble wrap and a foam pad for the pins.I was able to get an older AM3 socket computer back to life with no trouble. No bent pins or paste residue to deal with. Good price and fast shipping.
Summary: Direct replacement for my single core Sempron 140 (which I tried unlocking but alas could not). No need to change configuration in BIOS nor OS, just one reboot after boot, and so far (been about two weeks, maybe three?) there have been zero issues. Only time will tell, but as of right now I see no reason to expect problems.
Summary: I received it a few days ahead of time. Popped it in had to boot it off and on a few times for the motherboard to configure the bios for it runs like a champ. After a few hours of running in my AsRock N68C-GS FX board. I went into the bios and unlocked the 2 additional cores after a few tries.

Summary: This CPU has given me many hours of flawless operation. It runs cool, has great processing power, and handles software meant for its bigger cousins like a pro. It is used to play an online game that recommends a 4 core processor but I am able to use the bells and whistles with no problem at all even with it set on a moderate power plan through the OS on only its 2 cores. If your budget is prohibitive of a bigger CPU, this one will get you by admirably.
AMD Athlon II X2 240 2.8 GHz Processor ADX240OCGQBOX
8 October 2010
Summary: I received this product about 4 weeks ago and it is installed in my computer and is functioning well. It is my first dual processor and I am very impressed. It loads faster than any processor that I have ever owned and lets me begin work as soon as it loads (using Vista). Would recommend this processor to anyone who wants to improve their online experience.
Summary: Pros: 64-bit Dual-Core Cheap Does everything it's supposed to do & then some 65W 2 MB of L2 Cache Perfect balance between value & performance 45nm SOI Process Perfect for high definition multimedia SSE4 Instructions Cons: No L3 Cache Other Thoughts: This processor is a scaled down version of the Phenom II without the L3 cache. The Athlon II is a reliable processor that really is a credit to its name.
Nice processor for the money, much faster than older pentiums/althons
19 March 2010
Summary: This is a very nice processor for the money. Much, much faster than my other pentiums and athlons, and for only 50-60 bucks, seems like a no bainer. I can edit photos/video, surf web and burn CD's/DVD's with no problems (processor in the 50% to 60 range). Even during heavy multitasking the radiator stays cool to the touch with the stock fan, not even warm at all.
Summary: This processor is a great buy if you are looking for a budget no-frills processor. 2 cores. Good speed and an excellent price paired with low power consumption. Great for everyday netsurfing, Office and even gaming. For serious gaming get a 4-core Athlon or Phenom.
Summary: This processor is cheap, runs cool and overclocks well, out of the box with my Biostar Motherboard it scored a 5.7 in Win Vista 64 ! Not much else to say comes with a fan and runs great out of the box ... I would reccomend this to anyone and would buy it again !
