Very good processor with a good motherboard. very stable

Energy Efficient
Relatively Fast
Cost (for an intel)
No Overclocking
Weak Integrated Gfx
Tiny Stock Cooler
I went for this chip because I don't plan on overclocking and have a discreet graphics card. This is the perfect chip for me as the only cons it has don't really effect me. The stock cooler was smaller than I figured it should be, but temps seem excellent. Just a testament to how energy efficient these are. The performance is absolutely amazing, and the price wasn't too bad.

Better energy efficiency compared to AMD
Only a little cheaper than a 2500k
I bought this for someone who doesn't plan on overclocking and has a dedicated video card, so the 2500k wasn't necessary. It's my understanding that the 2500k adds better overclockability and a beefier onboard graphics chip.

This is the fastest CPU I've ever included in a build before and it flies. Played some Far Cry 2 maxed out at 1080p with a 6850 and it runs great. Also great for video/audio encoding, which makes me want to get one for myself.

If you don't plan on overclocking and you have a dedicated video card, this is highly recommended. Otherwise, spend a bit more on the 2500k.

Fast and stable
Using this for my main PC. Never been an overclocker. This cpu has more than enough horsepower for gaming and multi-tasking.

Experience: 1 Months
Low cost and good performance
Low power consumption
1080p playback
No Overclocking capability
Weak Integrated graphics for gaming
Got this processor for a family/media PC build, so my requirements were rather modest. I did not need to OC, but some may find this a disadvantage and may want to pay the extra 10-20$ for the K version.
The HD 2000 integrated graphics is a bit weak for running even modest games, but no issue with HD video playback all the way up to 1080p.
For budget Media PC builds, this is a great choice.

Experience: 3 Months
Extremely fast and quiet
None for my needs
Huge improve from my old Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 (sku#25298), combined with 8GB of RAM Windows 7 runs smoothly as well as several heavy applications like Photoshop. Great for multitasking.

Very fast CPU
quite expensive
Great product from a great company. A very fast CPU to have, but I think it's quite expensive.

Experience: 7 Days
Power efficient
Stock cooler is quiet
Got this for a mini-ITX gaming build. Very quick. Turbo boost makes it an excellent performer for games. Stock cooler is sufficient as well.

Experience: 14 Days

gr8 cpu for a ppl who doesn't want to overclock
good enough for gaming, no point in getting the 2600k
none i can think of
great cpu for a gaming computer for a person who doesn't look to overclock.

Experience: 2 Weeks
Fast enough for most people
Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz
none really
bought this for a friend who doesn't overclock and its great value at just $196 (I PMed it btw). Its fast enough for most people who does't convert or rendering of any kind. Highly recommend this over the 2600/2600k since you are paying aroud $100 more for hyperthreading and the little boost in clock speed. For those who wants a high end PC and on a budget, just go for the 2500 and if you really want the extra speed, grab the unlocked version and overclock it since its so easy to overclock now a days, nearly everyone can do it.
