If you build your own systems and want to build a "low power" or home theater type system I highly recommend this processor. This processor is nearly as powerful as it's bigger brothers the Pentium G and i3s. For the money this processor is a best buy.

I built an HTPC system using this processor and am thrilled with it. 1080p video streams smoothly. So far this processor has handled with ease everything I have asked it to do.

I purchased this CPU to put it in a home theater PC. It runs very cool and provides enough processing power to watch anything from YouTube to Blu-Ray videos. The Celeron name carries a bad reputation from years past but the new line of Celerons puts most low to mid-range AMDs to shame.
It only has Intel HD 1000 graphics but its more than enough especially if you're considering other low-end CPUs. Anything other than the stock cooler will be overkill for this. Remember to never touch the underside of the CPU or the pins on the motherboard!

I use this processor in my DIY file server (i.e., NAS). I have a mini itx motherboard and three hard drives in it at the moment. The OS is installed on a USB flash drive. I leave the server itself running 24/7 (only sleeping the hard drives when not in use), so I was looking for something cool but with good enough performance that it wouldn't get bogged down in usual fileserver stuff. Apparently an atom motherboard can fairly easily get CPU bound if you have several hard drives working. Anyway, this is the lowest performing multi-core Sandy Bridge CPU, but it is almost overkill for a file server. It compares with a typical core 2 duo processor in terms of performance (though it uses much less power).

A few points of note:

1. Fits in a standard 1155 slot, so basically any standard motherboard these days.

2. Idles at a very low power. When my hard drives spin down, my whole system eats only 35 watts (at the outlet), and my power supply is by no means efficient. So this thing is really sipping the juice.

3. Amazingly cheap. This is about the cheapest processor money can buy. The processor and motherboard I bought together cost less than an atom set, which is really something. And it performs much better, and I hear it idles at a lower power as well (though it uses more while working).

4. The heat sink on this is quite small. And it has a standard fan on it. I can work it as hard as I want and it never warms up. I bet with a decent aftermarket CPU heatsink you could go passive with this chip. Very cool.

Overall a good processor at a great price. This chip basically makes those atom chips look pretty bad. Unless you really need every last watt for your application, this chip wins over atom quite handily.

For the price I paid for this processor ($45), I feel like I committed a crime by purchasing it. Seriously? $45 for a Intel dual core 2.40 processor? That is a steal if I ever saw one! This baby will do it all as long as you understand that a Celeron type processor will usually have less on-board cache than the more expensive processors. However, you really don't need to be a rocket scientist to understand that this baby will pretty much handle many basic things that you throw at it besides of course the hardcore stuff. For example, I am only using this processor for a HTPC build to stream videos on my HDTV. You can rely on this processor for pretty much all of your daily tasks such as editing your documents, streaming Youtube videos, email, listening to music, watching videos and of course surfing the web. I've experienced no hiccup so far with this processor. I believe it also runs extremely cool although I haven't tested it under extreme conditions.

There really isn't anything more to say other than to get this processor now before it either runs out of supply or discontinued. If you are going for a budget build, you can't go wrong with this one. I initially wanted to purchase a AMD Sempron processor for a little less than this one but I figured what the heck? For a few more bucks, I can get a dual core processor! It's a no brainer.

Installed it and was happily surprised at the value you get for under $50.

HD playback 1080p No problem, Netflix YouTube 1080p looks great. I was able to run two 1080p videos on two separate monitors with no additional video card, CPU goes to 90-100% while playing YouTube 1080p (on two monitors!!!).

I rarely ever see this CPU go to 100% under normal use, unless you are a gamer this is all you need as an average PC user.

I see that, almost all the time it down-clocks itself to 1.6 instead of 2.4 so getting a faster clock is probably will not make a huge differences.

I cant say enough good things about this. The last time I purchased a celeron was back when I was building 400mhz computers. They rocked back then, but since technology has evolved I just assumed they would be a little anemic. WOW, was i wrong! This was paired with a BIOSTAR H61MGC LGA 1155 motherboard.

I built this to do some handbrake, video watching, email, youtube etc.

This processor does the job!
