Good Product; misleading seller

B. Pittman, Amazon
24 April 2009
  • Summary: This CPU works as advertised but there is no mention of it what shape you will get it. There should be an actual picture of the product you are buying instead of a stock photo. Don't be fooled...you won't get a nice Intel box like the pictures.

Suits my needs just fine

Kimberly M., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought this proc for a mid level build so I knew what I was getting into, that said, I'm actually pleasantly surprised by its performance.
  • Pros: Price. Runs fairly cool (granted w/Zalman aftermarket cooler, but still worth noting). Is able to run a host of mid-tier games at their best.
  • Cons: It's not Core 2 Duo. Its only 2.4Ghz.

Reliable and inexpensive

Peter G., Newegg

  • Summary: I haven't tinkered with OCing, but in the future I may test how it runs when overclocked.
  • Pros: This processor was very cheap, and hasn't failed me yet in over 2 months of usage. Very fast for the cost, but I don't see why you'd need anything more powerful than this; I can play COD4 while downloading music and scanning my PC. The stock cooling unit keeps the system pretty cool, idles at a l...
  • Cons: The stock cooling unit is somewhat loud, but that's all I can think of.

Vista Index Score 5.3

  • Summary: I wish I could've bought the E5200 but my mistake was not checking the mb mfr's website for compatibility prior to purchase. Lesson 1 learned. Case: In Win Allure (very nice case for girls) CPU: E2220 HD: Samsung 750GB 7200RPM MB: Foxconn G9657MA-8EKRS2H Video: EVGA 9500 GT 1GB DDR2 Memory: cheap...
  • Pros: Works extremely well. This cpu was purchased for my daughter's new build which also happended to be my first. Stock fan works great and was a breeze to install. Runs very cool; CPU temps at 40C idle : )
  • Cons: There are none really, not at this price point.

  • Pros: Great performance for under $100.
  • Cons: The included heatsink is garbage, make sure you pick up a third party one that actually uses screws/bracket instead of plastic push through clips to hold on to the mobo.

Great proc for the price

Joseph L., Newegg
19 January 2009
  • Summary: Might suggest using a good silver thermal paste (see the directions with the paste with regard to removing the stock thermal pad).
  • Pros: Cheap. Fast. Solid. Easy to overclock.
  • Cons: Has the push-down type of intel cooler. Minor pain to put in place, but honestly not a problem at all.

Cheap, Fast, Good for Cheap Builds

Andrew M., Newegg
27 December 2008
  • Summary: Not really a con but when switching out the processor i noticed that the heatsink that came with the E2220 is about half the size of the one that came with the Celeron D. Which is not a problem at all, seeing as when gaming with my E2220 is no hotter than 43 degrees celsius, which is amazing.
  • Pros: The Pentium Dual-Core E2220 is a wonderful processor. In the time i have had it, it's ran perfectly. I upgraded from a Celeron D 347 single-core 3.06Ghz, and it has nearly tripled my boot speed. made programs open twice as fast, and for gaming, i cannot really tell you, because my NVIDIA 7600GT 2...
  • Cons: Nothing so far.
