Experience: 2 Years
Good performance for the price
For a budget gaming rig, it was the perfect CPU.

i3 FTW

Experience: 1 Weeks
-does its job
for the price you pay, you really get the bang for your buck on this CPU. Does tasks ok but not reccomend for the hardcore pc gamers, however more for the buget pc build.

Experience: 30 Days

Integrated GFX are decent
Will need a GFX card for new games.
For the price it gets the job done. Intel cooling seems to do the job. Make sure you keep all your wires away from the cooling fan as it is very open and would be easy to get a wire tangled in the fan - use ties!!

Experience: 3 Days
fast and works
bad heatsink
This CPU is fast. It works. The stock cooler is an old though.

cheapp and gets the job done
This CPU is fast. It works. The OEM cooler is an old design, and I wish Intel would drop  it's push-pin design. However, cooler is quiet.

Quiet, fast, and stable; perfect for HTPC
Using this for my new HTPC build along with an ASUS P8H61 and 8GB Corsair XMS3. Seems to be a good upgrade over the Q6600.

-great cost
Great for starter gamer PC or just home office use. Intel graphics are pretty decent for normal desktop use, outperformed an AMD HD5450 1GB low end card I had. The stock cooler keeps the CPU at a good temp. The CPU it self takes a low amount of watts compared to some AMD CPU's and perform as good and even better in certain application. At this price range it's probably one of the best CPU for the money. I got it in a bundle deal with a motherboard for 159.99 so it was well worth it. PC was for a friend and he enjoys it a lot!

Cheap! (100$)
powerfull (3.3 ghz)
none but the fact it canot be overclocked
bought this on sale to replace my old E7300 (2.66ghz core 2 duo) and is very impressed with it. coupled with 8gb of kingston hyperX memory and a GTX 650 Ti from asus, this is a very cheap gaming setup. running most games that came out in the last year on high with an average of 70 FPS. of course great for everyday buisness, but the real strenght of this monster is the games. scoring an average of 12% faster than the core I7-870 and 5% less than the core i7 2600k. i would recommend any time for a cheap gaming setup.

Very good cpu for sub or light gaming
Good perfomance on encode and other general applications
Poor overclocking range
Poor integrated graphics perfomance
Would like to see hd graphics 300 on this

Experience: 1 Months

easy install, decent performance
if your building a budget or portable gaming pc this does the job. i am however have opted for running a 560ti as the main gpu. if your looking to run visually heavy games from the built in graphics core do some reviewing.

I think LinusTechTips on youtube has a few 'showdown' videos about GPU cores vs. dedicated GPUs.
