5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little chip

Pros: The 25W TDP was the main draw for me. This processor runs super cool and quiet, and the whole heatsink package is compact enough for almost any HTPC you could want. The performance is enough to make a decent XBMC box - the integrated GPU is enough to drive a 1080p display just fine. I use it for a storage server.

Cons: The heatsink murdered my thumbs to install. Seriously, are good old-fashioned screws just going out of style or something?

Other Thoughts: For those curious about real-world performance, I can say that playing back a 1920x800 H.264 video (VLC, Ubuntu x64) will utilize about 80% of all 4 cores. The same thing for a 1280x534 video will use about 40%. In other words, this is perfectly adequate for driving an HDTV, but maybe not enough power for on-the-fly transcoding of large streams.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Power Low heat

Pros: Cool, quiet, and fast. I was surprised at how snappy this device is.

Cons: Attaching the fan took me a few minutes to figure out, and there didn't seem to be any instructions but the info was easily found online.

Other Thoughts: I was able to build an LTSP fat client with this, a mini-itx mobo and 2 gb of ram for under $150.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for a low power HTPC

Pros: Low Power, Quad Core, and nice Graphics ability

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Great little processor that can more than hold it's own compared to the other "low power" alternatives. Great Graphics built in!

4 out of 5 eggsLittle Powerhouse

Pros: Cheap
Powerful
Quiet fan

Cons: AM1 heatsinks are annoying to install..

Other Thoughts: This little thing is awesome. Cheap for the CPU and for a motherboard to match it. Did a mini-itx build for a family member with a Vesa mountable case and put the whole thing on the back of the monitor.
This CPU is quick and doesn't get too hot. Additionally the fan for it is almost entirely silent. Would be perfect for a HTPC build.
Awesome CPU

5 out of 5 eggsSolid little CPU

Pros: This is the perfect CPU for a HTPC build. At only 25W, you don't have to worry about PSU requirements or heat. And it works well, too. I installed Windows 7 with no hassle and it runs great.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little Chip!

Pros: I bought this to put in a Windows 8.1 HTPC and it works flawlessly. Runs XBMC and and all the 1080p decoding I've thrown at it with out any hiccups or hesitation. For comparison, I recently bought a J1900 to go from a TDP of 25W to 10W, however the J1900 couldn't handle Windows + XBMC. The J1900 would even choke decoding 1080p using a lighter weight VLC. Just couldn't handle the HD video like this chip can. I realize the TDP makes a difference, but the J1900 doesn't hold a candle to this little guy. I'm using a 19v laptop charger to power everything.

Cons: The heat sink was tough to mount to the motherboard, this design while effective, could be improved. For my use case, single channel memory hasn't really been a bottle neck, but dual channel would always be better. Can't really knock an egg for either of these issues though.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any issues with temperatures, even though my case is fan less. The heat sink and CPU fan keep the temperature at a reasonable level. Primarily watch local HD movies and stream content with it. All of the heavy lifting goes to my desktop, which is much more capable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: I built my brother -in-law a HTPC with this cpu. I have to say that I am really impressed with this lil cpu. It streams video without breaking a sweat! It is very snappy when paired with a 120gig SSD and single 4gig ram stick. Here are the WEI scores to use as a basic base line: 6.3, 5.9, 5.0, 6.2, 7.9.

Cons: Heat Sink

5 out of 5 eggsHeatsink Developed By Disgruntled Former Intel Employee

Pros: This is a great little chip for home desktops running the usual apps such as Office, Chrome and even a little Photoshop. On a fresh Windows 7 install with only drivers installed my "Windows Experience Index" was - Processor: 6.3 Graphics: 5.1 Gaming Graphics: 6.2.

I have started to use this chip when a customer wants a computer for ~$300 and only does the basics.

Cons: Heatsink Developed By Disgruntled Former Intel Employee.

I think that pretty much sums up my only con for this chip. I can imagine an engineer holding an Intel heatsink and realizing the only way to make it worse would be to remove 2 of the 4 legs and make the push pins come apart into two pieces.

Well, mission accomplished sir. I have not had to read instructions while building a computer for many years.

Other Thoughts: The entire box that this thing comes in is half the size of a regular processor. The fan is extremely small, but under my testing was completely silent. I wonder if a 25 watt chip even needs a fan with how big the metal heatsink is?

5 out of 5 eggsI like it!!

Pros: Low Power Consumption
GPU Means no graphics card required for some applications.
QUIET fan operaton.

Cons: Supplied pictogram docs of APU install can leave you scratching your head.

Other Thoughts: I was looking to make an economical HTPC with a focus on low power consumption, and was going back and forth between the Biostar A86N-5000 embedded board and this APU on its own motherboard. I'm glad I went this route. Performance level while testing with Win10TP has been more than acceptable. Does everything I could ask for.

Regarding APU Install: If this APU is the focal point of your first AM1 platform build, take a quick skim through what's provided with your motherboard when it comes to APU install. It HAS to be better than what's provided with the chip. Installation was a snap once I merged the two sources of information together.

I know some have reported their fans were loud. Either AMD sourced another supplier of fans, or I got lucky because mine is extremely quiet even under 1080 video playback.

So far, so good. I'll revisit once I've owned it for a while, but for now I am quite satisfied especially since I scored the APU and a motherboard for less than $100 after rebates.
