Pros: Great value and works for any day-to-day application such as office work or watching streaming video, or browsing the web. Mid-level gaming it works fine too. I played Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City with this CPU just fine. Fallout 4 killed this CPU though. The game graphics were too much f...

Summary: it's a banger little processor that when attached to an SSD is respectfully fast, enough. I'm usually buying i7 processors but this is just to run a TV so how much processor do you really need? Not a lot. :)

Summary: Using only for HTPC. Little slow especially on startup but for movies or streaming works fine just don't ask it to do multiply things at once as it will dog down then. But I knew that going in.
Summary: i found myself playing games fairly well that had a minimum requirement of an i5, although i will be upgrading soon this chip as been extremely reliable and quite nice, although at the same time it might be worth it to save just a little bit longer for a better chip
Pros: works fine no problems really good performance for the money pretty cheap
Cons: you probably won't be running the witcher 3 at max settings 60fps with this, but for the low price what do you expect?
Summary: I've been an AMD fanboy for so long, but I decided to make a budget build for my office using an intel cpu, and this thing is amazing. I also thought not getting an i3,5, or 7 might be a mistake, and that the computer might be slow and under-powered, but that wasn't the case.
Great performance for those that do not game and are more into light photography and didigtal art work with photoshop cc

Summary: I bought this for getting a system up and running to ensure that would be able to upgrade the bios so I could add the cpu I want later but this actually serves all of my photoshop cc needs at the moment.
Summary: Paired with a cheap discrete GPU this might make an okay gaming PC for light stuff, but again, don't expect much. This CPU punches above its weight, but it's still not meant to play with the big dogs.
Pros: Inexpensive, gets the job done. Is able to drive a 1080p monitors with the iGPU and play netflix. Works fine running basic applications like Word and Chrome.
Cons: Bear in mind what you're buying here. This is an inexpensive non-hyperthreaded dual-core CPU. Thread-intensive tasks will lock this up or not run at all. Expect better single-core performance than similarly priced AMD offerings, but worse multi-thread performance. This won't be able to seriously ...
Summary: I am using this CPU in my home storage server. It works perfectly well in a Supermicro server motherboard and supports ECC memory as well. I am running a ZFS storage array with 4 drives and this CPU has no trouble handling the software RAID while keeping the power usage down.
Summary: It works. It does exactly what I need it to do by running Ubuntu/LAMP. I have no idea whether it it good for much else, but it serves-up a mean Wordpress page and MySQL queries run pretty fast.
