5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor!

Pros: This processor has surpassed my expectations greatly! It might only be a dual-core but this little guy just keeps on trucking! Many people are shying away from dual-core processors but if everyone studied their workflow, they would learn that they easily would be satisfied with a dual-core. More cores will only help you if you are doing heavy processing such as heavy gaming and heavy video editing. If you are an internet user and typing up word documents then this guy will do just fine. I occasionally do some video editing for small video and, while slower than I'd like, it still performs just fine.

Cons: Integrated graphics are far outdated and pointless to use with most builds. Throw in a decent GPU for best performance.
Video rendering is slower than I'd like but price point of this processor keeps me attached to it.
Only other con is that it runs a bit warmer than I'd like but the temperature remains stable even with heavy rendering.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the integrated graphics and throw in a good GPU and most of you will be very happy with this processor. Unless you are an ultra heavy gamer. That being said Skyrim runs on Ultra settings with my AMD 6700 just fine with this processor so to each their own. But overall I wouldn't recommend for heavy gamers and video editors. Everyone else will be more than happy with this purchase!

5 out of 5 eggsWorkhorse

Pros: Bought this over 2 years ago for its overclocking ability. Using a Corsair H20 kit I've had this going at 4.5GHz since I installed it. Paired with a 660Ti card and an Intel SSD it handles all the games I throw at it . The only upgrades I do are the video card but I'm thinking about a new case because there are too many cool looking computer cases out there !

Cons: None, best value for the money on price vs performance.

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.
