I bought this to replace my Brazos-based HTPC motherboard and CPU (E-350 to be exact). While the E-350 was just sufficient for media playback (and my CableCard TV with a bit of hacking), it did not have the muster for the additional tasks I wanted it to perform.

For cheap I:
- Host my TFS server

- Host the content for my local network (HD MKV streams, music, etc)

- Run a couple websites

- Watch TV

- Backup my local computers

Granted, none of these take tremendous power, but this thing is substantially faster at ALL of them than the AMD APU (though, that APU was still cheaper... And would have been fine for media playback).

Overall, 1000% satisfied. Fantastic CPU for an even better price.

This ain't your daddy's celeron. This is an ivy bridge processor, a subset of the newest i3 and i5 processors (at the time of this writing, 7/2013). I used this in a computer build for a friend who does nothing more than word processing, email, internet browsing, and watches a youtube video now and then. For her needs, this is the perfect processor at a fantastic price. It comes complete with the stock Intel fan & heatsink with what looks like really good thermal paste pre-applied on the bottom of the heatsink. It fits 1155 sockets and is 55W. I put this onto an Intel mini-ITX board with 4GB of DDR3 memory, new 80GB hard drive, little mini-itx case, and put in Windows 7. She loves her new computer, thinks she's died & gone to heaven after struggling with her 8 year old laptop for so long.

I built a rig that was $350 with a decent gfx card (Powercolor 7770 ghz ed.) and this cpu. I am absolutely blown away by the performance. So far, Tomb Raider, Planetside 2, and Dota 2 all run at a solid 60fps on high settings. Only when turned all the way up to ultra on TR and PS2 did the fps drop to 30. Temperatures stay at or below 40C when idling and do not even reach 60C on load. Most games on this simple rig play on a mix of high and ultra settings. I also do some music programming using software such as Pro Tools, Ableton, Reaper, Superior Drummer etc. and everything is fast. My sound libraries load quickly. Compressing and importing & exporting is a breeze. There is nothing that I do that this cpu can't handle. The efficiency and the price/performance ratio is unmatched by any other processor on the market, period. I am coming from a 1st gen Core i3 370m, and this thing blows it out of the water. That is really saying something, considering the 370m still holds up to any task today, with ease I might add. This processor is perfect if you are considering a build with a dedicated gpu. If you arent getting one & you are using a 1080p monitor, then I would recommend getting a Core i3 over this Celeron, as the integrated gfx here is the only downfall of this processor. At 1080p it plays choppy Youtube videos. However, as long as you buy a cheap dedicated card, this won't be an issue and you can save $75 on your gaming build by getting this over the i3 3220. I am so happy with my $43 purchase, and I can't wait to upgrade to a 3570k in 5 or 6 years :)

Bought this as a stop-gap after I toasted an Ivy Bridge Core-i5 and the associated motherboard (long story). I needed a quick, cheap replacement, and bought this Celeron until I could afford a Core i7-3770.

I was pleasantly surprised at the performance of this CPU. This is nothing like Celerons of old that had abysmal performance. I have a discrete GPU, so I did not use the on-package graphics on this guy. However, now that I have replaced this with a Core i7, I'm using this CPU to assemble a low-cost computer for my grandpa to replace the old Intel dual-core laptop that he's using. All in all, you can't go wrong if you need a low-cost processor for under $50.

I was considering on waiting for the Celeron Haswells to make the upgrade from my Atom system but since I got a good deal from Amazon for an ECS MB I decided to take the leap. It works and works well as the processor for my HTPC setup. Basically the HD2500 graphics on this chip does well for all of the HD video and for Windows Media Center. I am running this connected to my Silicondust Prime and again, it all works just dandy in full screen. Smooth play and playback. Odd since I have a different model ECS mini-itx board, the one with the 19V in and onboard DC-DC converters and the video is choppy, ECS H61H2-TI. For the life of me I can't figure out what driver is not quite right or what but none the less this processor with the ECS H61H2-I3 works just fine.

I wanted to make a home server. I am currently running ubuntu on it with a hypervisor with two virtual machines. One machine is my personal web hosting and the other is home services - (MediaTomb, AirPrint server, Subversion). It streams video very well and I find its performance to be better than expected.

I'm using this G1610 in a headless Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS NAS. I paired it with an ECS H61H2-I3(v1) mobo, and it works great. Transcodes 1080p bluray rips for an iPad mini with ease. It's not running a UI, so it's not very taxed, but then again, that was my goal in the installation. I haven't tried to do anything really hardcore with it, since my laptop's i7-2820QM is more than up to the task for just about anything I can throw at it, so it would be a bit of a waste to do processor-heavy tasks on the Celeron, when I've got a quad-core beast ready and waiting.

I'd imagine this processor would be great for running a desktop version of Linux or Windows, but it's doing just fine running a command line only OS for me. I thought about going AMD, but the reliability behind the Intel name was enough to sway me.
