5 out of 5 eggsGreat Workstation Processor

Pros: Used this in a workstation build for work and has worked perfectly and Win 7 gave the graphics a 7.2 in WEI which I thought was pretty good for built in graphics

Cons: None at this time.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very fast for a dual core, I use it in one of my file servers. I did play some games, such as WoW, on it to test the HD 4000 graphics and was surprised. Intel's HD graphics have come a long way.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This CPU would make a very capable gaming machine when paired with a good GPU. I'd never use it for gaming since this one of the lowest end CPUs I own.

5 out of 5 eggsFine basic processor

Pros: Excellent choice for a basic build. I am using the onboard graphics and it is more than adequate for my needs. No problems with this processor. My system is very fast as I am using an SSD and Windows 8.1

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The HD 4000 graphics is fine for a basic build.

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC Awsome

Pros: I had an I7 for my HTPC. Then i replaced for this gem. Apparently I over killed with the I7. This processor has the same built in graphics.

Cons: Price, but for what your getting, at 55W, You will be money ahead when it comes to your electric bill.

Other Thoughts: If you are an HTPC fan, this is it. If you need to do encoding, or trans coding buy bigger. If you are just watching then this to watch TV. Then by all means get this.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good for home server

Pros: Bought it to make a home file server and it works perfectly. I was able to run OS X Mavericks: it runs fast and handles external flat TV panel without any issues. Very good value for the money.

Cons: Default cooler is a bit too noisy; I'd expect something less powerful but more quiet.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat processor for budget builds

Pros: Runs anything I throw at it, cinema 4D, photoshop, video rendering, still running to today, doesn't over heat or anything. Alright for gaming, but I suggest getting a video card with it for battlefield 3 and up :/

Cons: Doesn't come with better heatsink? Isn't a quad core? Doesn't do my job for me?(Work)

Other Thoughts: Great for a budget build.
