Summary: Powerful performance, very low power draw. Used in my HTPC. More than enough performance for 1080p HD playback, some scaling post-processing, home serving needs, and even light gaming on the big screen.
Summary: I built a nice budget build for going away to school and this processor has exceeded all of my expectations. I purchased this processor back in June for $80 and I could not be happier with the performance I am getting.
Summary: At first i was hesitant in using this processor for a full HD HTPC that i built inside an old school NES however after extensive research i decided it was the way to go. The Heatsink and fan is small and extremely quiet (the computer as a whole is quieter than my xbox 360).
Summary: I have so far bought 2 of these CPUs - Both are built on top of the Biostar TH61 itx mobo. The home office unit is housed in the APEX MI-008 case with a 250watt PSU, the Digital Audio Workstation is in a Silverstone SG05bb case with a 450watt PSU.
Summary: This CPU is more than enough for my needs (1080p movies, Browsing, Netflix, Pic editing) 35w TDP is great! 32C avg with stock cooler. I have not stress tested this under 100% load though. Integrated graphics look great and run HD content with no problems.
Summary: It has been running happily for the last 6 months in my home server with Intel H61 Micro ATX mobo (BOXDH61BEB3) with 4GB of RAM and the total of 36 TB of storage space. Very low power consumption and quiet using stock cooler from Intel.
Summary: Nice heavy heat sink contact plate. I choose this low energy version of the i3 sandy bridge - i3 2100t, t=low power. It functions fine in my newly built file server. I'm also virtualizing a few VMs.
Summary: I purchased this processor for my first HTPC and it's ideal for the purpose. I only have good things to say about the processor: 1) It'll handle any day-to-day activity you throw at it. Navigating in Windows 7 or Ubuntu is just as snappy as its quad-core i5 siblings.
