Rated 5 out of 5 by Bossco82 Amazing value for money
Firstly I would like to start by saying I'm an Intel man, I also run a 4790k. I used one of these for a media pc in my living room. For the money its amazing value. If all you want is to browse the web, stream movies and listen to iTunes, look no further. If you couple this with you OS on a ssd, it flies. It boots into windows in 15 seconds, web browsing is quick and snappy. Also HD playback is smooth via streaming or xmbc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simms More powerful than expected
I got this as part of a rebuild along with the related products below when an old machine died. It is a very efficient APU and I am impressed to say the least by the amount of processing power it has given the low power draw.
I have W7 Pro SP1 64-bit and Fedora 20 MATE-Compiz Spin 64-bit installed in EUFI dual boot and it works perfectly with both OS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephen1991 Get this unless you are on a masochistic budget.
I wouldn't quite buy the tagline for Incredible quad-core performance, but it'll only chew on ~35w at most with DDR3L and an SSD installed.
As a machine to dedicate to a 3D Printer (My purpose :D ), the GPU is superb for light OpenGL usage (Creation Workshop renders the STL on the print-bed using OpenGL).
All in all, an excellent choice for anything requiring reasonable speed and power consumption that's through the floor.
