5 out of 5 eggsAMD Kabini quad core

Pros: Runs Microsoft Office, Windows 10, and meets all my wife's pc needs. No problems with cpu at all

Cons: Wish I would have bought Athlon first. Started with Sempron and the Athlon is much faster.

Other Thoughts: Wife likes this computer and uses it for her home business and personal use

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little cheap processor

Pros: Great Price, Effective, easy installation

Cons: Not many motherboards to choose from

Other Thoughts: This processor did exactly what I needed it to. Built a computer for my Mom who was using an old Core 2 Duo Processor. She didn't have a lot of money to spend and getting this processor, with the motherboard, memory, and case and power supply for under $300 was great! I of course didn't expect this to do anything major, mostly just surfing facebook, and it does that to my Mom's satisfaction just fine

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

Pros: I have this with a wireless keyboard, 128GB SSD for system software, and a 3TB WD Green for storage. I use a Hauppauge 2 tuner TV card to record OTA TV programs. I can record 2 TV shows while playing either recorded programs or Netflix movies. I know its intended for the inexpensive third-world market, but dollar-for-dollar its one of the best little low power HTPC processors around. AM1 motherboards are cheap, too, at 30-40 bucks. With my student version of W8 Pro my system cost around $400, and works great with an HDTV. I can watch TV or recorded video while websurfing or doing my homework on the same screen.

Cons: Not a real con but the CPU is a little anemic. Works fine for HTPC. Paired with an SSD, the system boots up and runs pretty fast. But look elsewhere if you're looking for a gaming machine or need to run CPU-intensive tasks.

Other Thoughts: All of the AM1 motherboards I've seen only have two SATA connections and no onboard USB3. Since I have a Blue-Ray player and other computers with DVD drives its no problem. Also, Newegg sells 2-port USB3 panel with cords that plug into the back USB3 ports and brings them up front where they are easy to access.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little processor

Pros: I have had bad dealings with AMD processors in the past, but in the past year, I have 2 other AMD systems that have performed better than I expected. This one also seemed like a good one with it's low power design, and quad cores. I think this will be a very good processor for my NAS build.

Cons: Only complaint is the stock cooler, and lack of aftermarket coolers for the AM1 socket. (formerly known as FS1b).

Other Thoughts: Hopefully if AMD keeps this socket, and continues selling processors like this, the number of coolers will increase.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great but i expected more

Pros: I have it in my server/ htpc and it does exactly what it was intended to do, store data and stream games and videos.
I never have lag with it while streaming and even when browsing still operates like any other computer I've ever used

Cons: it benchmarks much slower than I expected.
I know it was only $50 and it only uses 25W but it even looses out to some of the slower i3 haswell u series.
price to performance is right on par here but I was hoping for something that would have better core performance.
for example, what took 25 mins to decode on my 8350 took almost 8 hours on this little thing when it was clocked at 2.1.
that is a little sad

Other Thoughts: like I said price to performance is the whole picture here. I paid less than $500 for a 8 tb server that has a passmark score over 2500. you cant buy that for that cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect HTPC choice

Pros: - Very low price
- Very low power consumption
- Good performance. Has no problem with streamed 1080p videos and browsing
- Fast and responsive

Cons: Don't know if the problem comes from the APU, motherboard, or ram sticks..but the system won't boot if Intel XMP is not enabled in the BIOS. I won't take an egg off, as it works all right now!

Heatsink required a lot of pressure to install. My motherboard does not have any support in the center, and I was afraid of breaking it.

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale, along with 4gb of ram and a 120GB SSD. With the MSI am1m motherboard, and a case with built-in PSU, this complete HTPC build cost me 300CAN$, shipped at my door!

5 out of 5 eggsTurn on gpu acceleration!

Pros: Low cost, good performance low wattage quad-core.

Cons: Would like a bit more speed, most AM1 motherboards have little or no overclocking features.

Other Thoughts: If you are using this APU for HTPC you need to turn on " gpu acceleration " So that your 1080p playback will be running on the GPU with almost no cpu usage. It's amazing so many people don't know this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value, Amazing Performance - Ubuntu

Pros: Unlike many other HTPC users, I use this as my main computer. I don't game but as a general use CPU it does great. Plays YouTube videos and multitasks like a champ. It transcodes video with Plex and Emby no problem. I don't see why 90% of computer users wouldn't be perfectly happy with this. Runs so cool, I'm thinking of going fanless

Cons: Probably not great for gaming or heavy video encoding.
