Summary: Got this last summer for a (relatively) low power HTPC build and have found it handles everything we've thrown at it. The on board graphics is more than adequate for viewing HD movies and is able to do transcoding in the background without skipping a beat.
Summary: I originally built my first Thin Mini ITX computer using this processor. This is a low power processor (35watt) that worked well within the Akasa Euler Thin Mini ITX Case. The case is passively cooled with a case heatsink.
Summary: I wanted to build a passively cooled home theater PC (HTPC). When I looked at the benchmarks for comparable systems in my price range, this won hands down, with 25-45% performance edge and 35W opposed to 50+ watts.
Summary: So I wanted to save some $ by replacing a 55W i3. I was a bit skeptical due to the 35W claim and 2.8 Ghz claim. Let me tell you, I don't regret the buy, it is EVERYTHING I hoped for and more. This cpu went into my HTPC/SERVER machine that is on 24/7.
Summary: I bought this because I wanted a cheap Intel CPU for a computer and what I got was pretty good. The fan included was also nice as it easily snapped into the motherboard. I've had no problems so far with this CPU despite running it at 100% 24/7 for work related purposes, it hasn't failed or...
Summary: I bought this for its performance and low power consumption. I am more than happy with the build that centers around this CPU, a Mini-ITX setup. Performance is on par with my old Core 2 Quad 8300..benchmark wise, but it feels way zippier in real use.
Summary: Support ECC RAM. VT-x but not VT-d. 35 W TDP. Similar in performance to the the Xeon E3-1220L V2 processor, which adds VT-d and has a jaw droppingly low TDP of 17 W. However, the E3-1220L V2 is very hard to acquire, and about 2x as much money.
