5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: Cheap, quick, has good integrated graphics, rock solid.

Cons: Motherboards designed for this processor generally only have 2 SATA ports, the stock fan can be noisy.

Other Thoughts: I use this primarily for Windows Media Center in Windows 7.1 as my cablecard DVR. It is paired with a silicondust HDHOMERUN Prime, and it works very very well. It has enough power to browse the web while windows media center is running on a 1080p display simultaneously, and with an SSD boots into windows very quickly. Zero real complaints here.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat low watt solution that games

Pros: 25w, quad core, silent under load, games incredibly well for most pre 2014 games

Cons: None really, I knew what I was getting when I bought it, won't play current gen games without great difficulty, but I knew this before buying

Other Thoughts: I've had this running since Feb 2015 and had no problems with installation or running Windows 7 or 10. It boots quickly with an SSD and it practically silent even while under load. Paired it with a Zotac 750ti 2gb it runs most older games at 720 and 1080 at medium to high settings. I definitely would want to pick a cpu with more power to play games made in 2014 on to get better visuals, even with this card. Most of my Steam library and Origin are playable at medium to high levels running 50 60 fps Tomb Raider to 30 40's with SWTOR and Fallout 3 and NV. Absolutely will not run Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition at minimal graphics and lowest resolution with this pair. This should give you an idea of what it can and cannot handle game wise.

I leave my computer on for days at a time and paired with the 750ti and Antec Earthwatts 380, I can hardly tell if it is on or not. I built it to be quiet and in that respect, it delivers. Once I build a new rig, this will probably go into the living room as a general purpose workstation. This isn't the CPU you're looking for to do any rendering or high workload tasks. If kept to gaming on older titles pre-2014 and general use, it's a perfect lower cost solution.

5 out of 5 eggsLow Wattage High Performance

Pros: Runs cool, low wattage, only needs a low wattage power supply, almost as fast as a typical 3ghz/4ghz CPU when running business software (word processors, spreadsheets, coding, etc.), attractive price.

Cons: I would like to see XP drivers available. For my own PCs I may never use more than Windows 7, 8, and Linux, but a lot of business customers need to continue using XP.

Linux drivers are not yet ideal, and it may or may not be a Windows driver that typically causes one or two blue screens a day when Windows Media Player plays MP4s (MP3s are no problem, and MP4s in other programs are also fine (like the GOM and VLC players)). To me the oddities are not important, but it is something to be aware of.

Other Thoughts: I bought the 5350 (with an MSI AM1M motherboard) for its low wattage, being a quad-core, and its 2ghz+- speed. I wanted to build a low power PC for business use (mostly text work with a little basic graphics work), and the 5350 was a perfect choice. After building my PC with Windows 8, I quickly ordered another 5350 to rebuild my wife's Windows 7. This is the setup I now suggest to my business customers. With a cheap OEM 350w power supply (pulled from a name brand PC when new), the power supply's exhaust is just barely above room temperature (not like the room heater PS I had been using).

This APU replaces the A10-5800 3.9ghz+- PC I had been using, and I have not noticed any significant difference of speed, but I have noticed substantial drops of temperatures and noise in the office, and the savings in electricity are measurable. The new setup will pay for itself within one to two years in energy savings alone.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic little APU!

Pros: Obviously the price is a huge plus. A four core CPU with GPU for around $50. A steal. Motherboards and RAM for this series are also lower in cost allowing a less expensive (notice I didn't say cheap) build. Pleasantly surprised at performance. Easily outruns any ATOM or older Core2Duo chip and works great for classic office tasks. Paired with Win8.1 or Win10 is very quick to boot and feels snappy during use. I used an MSI AM1L mobo.
Low power - 25W is the AMD rating. Really - 4 cores and a GPU at 25W?? Amazing!! The included heatsink/fan is just OK - I replaced the thermal paste with better stuff and it's working out.
Single channel memory controller is adequate. Personally I don't notice any difference in general use. Gotta figure the CPU and APU sharing a single memory controller will bottleneck at some point but I don't see and issues yet. And RAM for single channel applications is CHEAP right now!!

Cons: Limited over clock potential but its not geared at that market segment so not going to ding this APU for something it was not intended to do.
2GHz clock is a bit anemic these days but you will be surprised at the performance this delivers.
The included heatsink/fan is just OK. Absolutely up to the task of keeping this chip cool with only 25W power rating. I replaced the thermal paste with better stuff and my idle temps are around 22C.
Rendering 1080i video to watch a Ducks game for three hours it gets up around 32-34C. The fan is noisy but not audible when in my case with the TV volume up. I bet you could turn it off (depending on mobo BIOS settings) and use a decent case fan to blow air across the APU.
Single channel memory. A Pro and Con. A con because these days everything is dual channel. A Pro because memory for single channel mode is CHEAP!! 8G for $30.
People that write reviews complaining about stuff that was never a feature or intended application loose cred in my books.

Other Thoughts: I was hesitant to buy this - left it in my cart for weeks pondering the purchase. I needed a small form factor PC to do double duty as a basic web surfer / office machine and still fill in on HTPC duty as needed. NewEgg put a mobo and 8G RAM on sale that made me jump at the purchase. APU + Mobo + 8G RAM for under $100. This APU is no brainer for HTPC or basic web surfer. Why spend hundreds more when you don't need to??

5 out of 5 eggsNeat & powerful niche CPU

Pros: Surprising quick quad core low power CPU. Not for big time game players or power users, but for those who do some net surfing, Facebook, etc. stuff with some light email work it does all that with speed and low power demands and low heat.

Cons: The motherboards for this class of CPU/APU are too limited in hard drive support. I wish they could support at least 4 drives so you could have a CD/DVD player burner and a backup image drive plus a spare.

5 out of 5 eggsReally impressed

Pros: I have this combined with a GTX 460 1GB GDDR5 Fermi card, and while it's not the greatest gaming machine by any means, it plays a surprising amount of things. I wouldn't pair the CPU with anything stronger though as you would probably start noticing some-kind of bottleneck issues. These balance well though.

Paired with the MSI board and 8GB skill ram, and a 450W PSU from Rosewill. Storage is a 7200 RPM 320GB drive. My wife is the primary user of this machine, and mostly watches Netflix on it.

I occasionally play DB Xenoverse, CS:GO, and Portal 2 on it without any issues on default settings. I would expect anything with similar requirements should run reasonably well as well.

Cons: No real cons for me. I paid for a low power CPU, I got a low power CPU.

Maybe I could complain that the stock fan can be a little loud/whizzy at times? Not enough to take an egg off though.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding for basic-level PC's

Pros: Price, ease of installation. Perfect for a low-end PC used for basic tasks (I used this in a build for a school-age child). Cheaper to build a lower-end machine with this than it is to buy at a retail store.

Cons: For what I used it for, none.

Other Thoughts: This processor is surprisingly responsive on basic tasks. I wouldn't want to put it through the rigors of running a modern (last 5 years) game, but for most basic-use tasks, is just fine.

I've always been very happy with AMD products in the machines I've built (despite their struggles to keep pace with Intel). They've always been less temperamental (if more power hungry and lately lagging in performance at the high end) for me than Intel, and at far friendlier prices.

I have no reason at the current time, given the disparity of pricing for parts and processors, to change over to Intel, and this processor is a great product for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD Athlon 5350 Kabini Quad-Core 2.05 GHz

Pros: Price, Low Power Requirement plus a built in Radeon HD 8400 video card makes building a mini or ITX computer easy. Supports 64 bit and Virtualization Technology which is nice if you want to run more than one OS.

Cons: Speed is a little slow at 2g but not that bug of a deal

Other Thoughts: I bought this CPU to put in an ITX system and it works great Even running windows 10.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD Athlon 5350 Kabini Quad-Core 2.05 GHz Socket AM1 25W AD5350JAHMBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon HD 8400

Pros: Great Speed for the Price-point, slight stutter upon first boot, but easily remedied by using the correct drivers.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: absolutely brilliant for a HTPC (Home Theatre PC) Runs silent and steady at a cool 30 Degrees Celsius with Stock Fan/Heatsink Combo, runs silent as well, no sound at all from PC even when running for a full 24-hour period stress test. didn't get anywhere near 45 Degrees Celsius, so i consider it to be an excellent and affordable CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsGood!

Pros: It works well considering what it is. Can handle HD well. Very low power. Way better than most pre-built cheap quads/

Cons: Fan is a little noisy as some stated. Gets a little hung up once and while but still sufficient.
