Pros:

Used this CPU to upgrade a machine for a client. They needed an extra server to host a few virtual desktops for specialized applications, so instead of buying a whole new machine I upgraded one of their old Sempron desktops on the cheap using this, some spare RAM from other decommissioned desktops, and a good NIC. For this purpose, it worked absolutely great. Peak time CPU load is only about 30-40%, so it's still got plenty of headroom for growth.

Cons:

For a standard desktop, whether its for gaming or office work or whatever, Intel's Core i3-2100 is by far a better choice for a similar price. It's faster in most applications and the socket gives you a nice upgrade path in case you need more power later. It also uses less electricity, and Intel's stock cooler is BY FAR quieter.

Other Thoughts:

Rating this 5 stars because it fit my needs perfectly. However, at this point in time I can only recommend this CPU if you are simply upgrading your AM2/AM3 system to get some more life out of it. If you're building something from scratch its price/performance ratio isn't what it used to be, and the AM3 platform limits your options in the future.
