Summary: I wanted to make a home server. I am currently running ubuntu on it with a hypervisor with two virtual machines. One machine is my personal web hosting and the other is home services - (MediaTomb, AirPrint server, Subversion). It streams video very well and I find its performance to be better than expected.
Summary: Bought This after reviewing some other CPU's, I almost Bought an AMD Quad Core but decide to take a chance on this and it's an Excellent CPU for Home Theater PC. I paired it with an Elitegroup H61H2-MV, 4 GB Ram and an LG Blu-Ray drive. Works flawless in a Media Center Case with Remote.
Did the job great, and still will if you prefer to stick ...

Summary: This was on sale for cheaper than the G530 so I bought it instead. Powerful little office/home CPU. Did the job great, and still will if you prefer to stick with older generation over Haswell.
Summary: For a office desktop this is a perfect package. Plenty fast enough and solid. I wouldn't use it as a gamer board but it wasn't meant for that. Price is low too. Packaged with processor fan in a retail box.
Summary: Not you old school Celerons that normally sucked but a new breed that gives good performance for you average user. This Processor is not for a power user but an average to light user that just uses basic games, internet, and videos.
Summary: I have more shopping amazon with this line of intel processors (celeron) because they are cheap and yielders and wing moment of truth I recommend them last are very widely used in the office and I have no problems
Summary: I have this running in our front desk machine and it's perfect. Great performance for any basic tasks. Running in tandem with a decent amount of RAM and an SSD has created a very snappy office work machine using primarily MSOffice products and the web. Blows through everything with performance to spare. Nothing bad I can really say about this processor.
