Cheap and works with no problems. AMD is going away with support for AM1 so you might want skip this and go for their budget line releasing in late 2015
Top notch for the price and quality. Does EXACTLY what you want it to do for an HTPC or just casual "grandparents" computer.
I haven't really pushed the CPU much at all so far, but even with only a 200mm case fan, its temperature is so low that the thermal sensor runs into the issue I've seen described elsewhere where it reports it as lower than it really is. I've never seen it reported as more than 17 degrees Celsius and change; I know it's still actually higher than that, though.
Its single-threaded passmark score is a little bit higher than the single-threaded score the dual-core Celeron 2955U on my Acer C720 Chromebook got, and that was sufficient for web browsing and such, so with double the cores, I know the AMD 5350 will be plenty powerful.
Good processor for general web browsing.
Great value. Recommended for an HTPC build or a casual everyday PC.
Cheap CPU, nice performance for light Ubuntu/Windows 10 instances. The included heatsink is an absolute pain to put on, and I needed to retry about 3 times (which requires almost breaking the mounting hardware) to successfully mount every time I built this system.
Nice APU, surprisingly capable for the price
Nice low watt cpu that gets the job done for internet browsing.
Amazing CPU, Amazing power draw and amazing performance
Awesome CPU for the price. I've seen benchmarks at 2.5 GHz that rival the Q6600, which I know is old but hey - its 36 bucks.
It also runs DX9 games like a champ.
