Summary: Yes this processor is pretty good! I mean I don't necessarily like it i'm a gamer and like recording / rendering video's etc and it is pretty slow in these things (I think it even bottlenecks my video card). I acknowledged that this isn't necessarily a gaming processor but yeah it's still pretty good for the price!
Summary: Great starter CPU. Good for entry level gaming, home and office applications. Affordable, and yet performs. It's a dual core that has 2 virtual cores, so it acts like a quad. Overall, though, if you're looking for reliability, Intel has always been at the top of the industry.
Summary: I USED THIS FOR A HTPC BUILD MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR THAT PURPOSE, WITH STAND ALONE VIDEO CARD.I DID NOT GIVE IT A 5 STAR BECAUSE I HAVE SYSTEM WITH AN I5 3570K. THAT BEING SAID I DO HAVE TO ADMIT IT IS QUITE FAST FOR DESKTOP STUFF VERY IMPRESSED. Sorry about the cap lock to lazy.Just wanted to add for the Die hard AMD fans I do like AMD products and all my video cards (5 builds) all have Amd video cards But, intel cores are equal to 1.5+ cores of Amd.
Summary: Chip works great but I tend to think it is a bit pricey, it plays HD video fine and does regular office tasks and internet browsing easily. Used it in a build for myself for 2 months before selling it to my brother, he seems to love it and is very satisfied with it. This is the ideal chip for non power users when it goes on sale or is discounted in a bundle with a motherboard. 4/5 stars because it isn't well priced.
Pros: Great chip, performs well. Affordable when it goes on sale. Low power consumption.
Cons: Sort of expensive for a pretty basic chip. I would either go for a cheaper chip or just jump to an i5 instead of this at regular price.
Summary: This is a great processor for day to day activates Skype calls, Internet browsing just the basic stuff. Does what is expected and if this is pared with a Decent Gpu it will run games fine at Medium settings.
Pros: Cheap, Good performance for a Office/Home Pc.
Summary: Very very satisfied with this processor from Intel. This i3 is a workhorse and lets me get things done efficiently without lag or problems. Very very impressed at how it can handle different tasks with relative ease. Did not expect that with the i3 line of Intel processors. Good bang for the buck!
