    "I bought this processor a few month ago and am extremely pleased. While it is definitely on the pricey end, I have been able to accomplish everything I needed it for. I probably could have bought a cheaper option and been okay but the quality has been well worth the money. I do a lot of editing with it and have had no issues. In the end, it is a bit expensive but if you have the money, I would say buy it."

    "Quality budget processor in this budget range. One of the best I've seen. The only downside I noticed is that it requires a lot of memory. Make sure you buy good RAM sticks in order to get the best performance out of this processor."

    "Unless you're preparing to shell out $750+ for the absolute top of the line, the Ryzen 1700x is amazing. This may be the best price/power CPU out now. For nongaming use, you will never have an issue and for gaming, this will last you a couple of years at the very least."

    "This is a good solution only because the topic is very subjective in the way it uses "the world". Many people may believe this based on some of the good reviews, while others may not. It has 4 1/2 stars but just over 300 reviews. The brand Intel however is a very well known and reputable brand which does make this a great solution. "

    "A fair upgrade for someone on a budget, I bought two, one for my child's computer, the other for myself. It was the ideal upgrade for the kids computer but i found things still moving a bit slowly on my computer. Overall, I say a three, with usefulness depending on the level of use in the computer."
