5 out of 5 eggsPowerful enough for HTPC

Pros: Combine this with an ASRock AM1H-ITX AM1 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB, a 120GB SSD & 4GB of RAM and my entire system usually never pops above 20 watts (using DC power input of Mobo) during typical usage.

Cons: Could be a little faster, but for the power usage, price and capability it is hard to match.

Other Thoughts: Saved $10 over the 5350, so I have a "reason" to upgrade it once "Beema" joins the AM1 socket family...

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Quad-Core CPU

Pros: - Quad-core CPU consuming only 25W!
- Northbridge and southbride included: motherboards become all cheap and compact-sized
- almost no fan noise: comes with a fan, but almost no fan noise at all. Fan rotates around 1.5K rpms for my system
- Compact size: almost like a quarter --- except that it's rectangular.

Cons: - not for high-end gaming: not a good match with high-end gaming video cards demanding full bandwidth of PCI Express x16 specs

Other Thoughts: - Quad-core cpu consuming 25W? Are you kidding?
- New atom processors might be better in terms of pure tech specs: they consume less power. Intel does provide quad-core Atoms. But Atoms become pretty much expensive when you build a system for yourself. The new Atoms are for tablets.
- Very good for upgrading existing systems
- Very good for HTPC
- New heatsink/fan installation okay from my experience. Just different.
- Go ahead and buy it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Apu

Pros: Cheap & Excellent for the $$ & HTPC or general use
I also have the 5350. They are very close to the same. The 5350 wins in small increments for my use.

Cons: The heatsink install is a bit strange like a chipset factory install

Other Thoughts: Get it they are a blast I paired it with the MSI AM1I

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome performance HTPC

Pros: Price,25W, performance per dollar, very quiet cpu fan.

Cons: price dropped $5 after I bought it.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this incredible cpu along with an MSI AM1i mb and 4g of ram and installed in an old Dimension Dell 2400 P4 circa 2003. I, of course, threw away the mb, cpu and memory from the old Dell but kept the very clean Case and very quiet 200w powersupply. Anyhow, after insalling this entire system along with a spare 60g ssi and LG bluray drive, I decided to install Win 8.1 Pro to see how well it would perform. Dang, this little cpu and rest of the system is amazing! It plays all my blurays flawlessly. Zero hiccups, dropped frames..zero! MKVs play perfect as well. Win 8.1 with only 4g of ram runs buttery smooth. No lag whatsoever.
I only wanted to test win 8.1 because I thought it wouldn't run well with this cpu and only 4g of ram and I thought of installing Linux Mint instead.
Well, I'm keeping Win 8 (my family enjoys the new OS experience).
The entire system is very quiet. We cannot hear the computer running. The 11yr old ps is whisper quiet and unbelievably, the cpu fan (tiny fan) is literally whisper quiet as well.
Forget about buying a smart tv. Build something like this and it'll outperform any smart tv on the market.
BTW, I am not using a keyboard or mouse. I am using android app called 'AIO remote' which controls the pc and acts like a keyboard and mouse through my wifi. So...I can control my pc from anywhere in my house. Awesome!!!

5 out of 5 eggs25w Power

Pros: Well its awesome for a basic computer for web browsing, office, and even a bit of Photoshop. Great for ITX Builds.

Cons: Nothing much as long as you realize this is a low powered solution designed for basic tasks, do not set expectations too high.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect CPU for NAS

Pros: Has no trouble with displaying 2 million picture files that are 1.5 Mb each compared to overpriced NAS units with less CPU horsepower that use weak ARM processors and will lock up if this many files had to show up in a FTP client browser (been there done that!).

Stays cold to the touch on the fan cooled heatsink also.

Cons: Could use a better design for the heatsink mounting, but oh well, it is what it is.

Other Thoughts: Perfect processor for a Freenas8 box that I am using as a security camera data storage in picture snapshot mode.

4 out of 5 eggscool

Pros: 25W. the competion is either slow, too expensive, or does not have 4 cores.
4 cores. low idle power.
high value product when used with the right motherboard.
see other thoughts....

Cons: it is what it is...
disappointed that the OBG graphics under linux are not better.

see other thoughts...

Other Thoughts: Amd's graphics drivers under linux require work.

when used in a AM1M-itx MB (and dc in ) this becomes a 5 star product, because the feature set of the Motherboard makes this CPU high-value product,

i am using this with the am1H-itx and dc in.
so under linux it only requires 16 watts at idle. with prime95(mprime) only needs 40 watts.

use with MythTV, requires a Graphics card (gt630v2) because the OBG's drivers under linux need work.

i won't make this a 1 star review because the price decreased 2week later...

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome CPU

Pros: I have this CPU installed on an ASUS AM1I-A system board. The CPU runs cool and performs very well as as internet and htpc. I am very satisfied with it.

I was able to overclock the CPU to ~2GHz at stock voltage. I kept the memory clock to ~1600MHz due to my memory sticks limitations.

Cons: The new heat sink-fan attachment is kind of lame (More effort to install it than previous AMD heatsinks). But I can understand that this CPU is designed small form factor systems.

Other Thoughts: Running Windows 8.1 on it without any issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointting

Pros: Energy efficient platform
High max operating temp of 95 celsius

Cons: Mounting system for the heatsink and fan, makes not only removing the processor for later upgrades as well as installation very hard to do.
In my case this processor was a waste of money as I will never get to use it because of the bent pins.

Other Thoughts: I some how managed to pull the processor out of the socket while trying to just mount the heatsink and fan to the motherboard. So, unlike AMD's previous socket designs this one has no room for error during this process.
