I had originally used this for a file server, but as the amount of things that I used the machine for grew, the more its performance limitations became apparent. I'll be honest, it is not the strongest core, but for a basic machine or file server it will do the job.
I had a machine based on this board with OpenELEC installed on it for some point and it played most of my media without issue. For HEVC/H.265 (and VP9) the APU does not have a hardware decoder for it so it is done in software. Since the CPU cores are fairly weak, only 720p'ish 29.97 low bitrate HEVC was good. Any more and the CPU would start to choke.
I've upgraded since to a 5350 since I wanted to play 1080p60 on Youtube as well and this wouldn't cut it.

Was used in my server, but I found a good deal on an Ivy i3 and jumped on it for no other reason because I can. This CPU performed very well in that use case and consumed very little power. I have absolutely no complaints about it. My server is headless so I have not tried any media playback on it using the IGP.
I like to think of myself as a reasonable guy, so a reasonable offer won't be refused. Please PM me if you are interested, we will work out arrangements and the like through that channel.
