Summary: This Core i3 processor has respectable performance. It's better than many of AMD"s offerings - even those with many more cores. Power usage is quite low on this processor, which is part of why I purchased it.
Summary: Installed this in a media center box that's on 24/7. The entire Computer only uses 55w of power at max load. The integrated video is plenty to watch 1080p recorded tv. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to build a low power media PC.
Summary: Bought this processor to power my media center PC which is connected to an HDTV and runs Windows Media Center and connects to a network TV tuning device. It runs it flawlessly after fiddling around with the Intel integrated graphics settings a bit to get everything all properly set up.
Summary: I bought this to build a PC based DVR system. I am using the following parts to get these results: (1) Western Digital AV-GP WD10EURX (HDD) (1) G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL (4GB RAM) (1) BIOSTAR B85MG (motherboard) (1) SeaSonic SS-300ES (power supply) (1) GeoVision GV-800B video capture card No...
Pros: This processor is fantastic for a computer that is ON all the time. The power consumption is very low and the performance seems good.(I'm not a gamer so your results may be different. The whole computer idles at 28 Watts!!
Cons: The fan that comes with the CPU is noisy at top speed, however, this processor does not need that much cooling. I went into the BIOS and changed the CPU fan operating to run much slower and it cools the CPU just fine at low speed.
Summary: This thing has easily taken on many newer games at high and ultra presets, (paired with a Radeon 6870) and handles most other tasks with ease. If you're under a tight budget, I would highly recommend this chip! Extremely hard to beat for the price.
Pros: In terms of single threaded performance and mild multitasking, this thing tears through anything with a comparable price. Takes low power while doing it too so it's easy to keep cool.
Cons: Only 2 hyperthreaded cores, but what more could you ask for at this price? Hardly a con as it's to be expected.

Summary: I bought this for a new computer i was building my parents. I have to give it 5 stars because it installed easy and i saw no performance issues when i was installing windows, copying there data to the new computer, and installing other software.
Summary: Put in new system build. Works great didn't know it came with silver grease so wasn't sure if it was applied at factory, which i found out they do put grease on them for installation on processor...Not overclocking it as of yet but i don't think my mobo will let me as of yet.
