Pros:

Fast. Wonderfully fast. Perfect price point for 3D enthusiasts, and people looking to run high workload home servers.
For around 200 dollars per CPU, you could build a blindingly fast home renderfarm on a shoestring budget.
Haven't overclocked it yet, and performance on the server is faster than our last 2600K @ 4.5GHz. Very surprised, very impressed.
This is a tough as nails CPU not built for gamers, but for enthusiasts and heavily multithreaded tasks.
Great, cheap power.

Cons:

High power usage. Not even close to cause alarm, just higher than the average right now, pre-overclocking.
Still a "pinned" socket. I prefer the pads on the Intel's.

Other Thoughts:

Very pleased with AMD this time around, for the first time in a long time. They have a real contender here. This is a quality, fairly priced product that will last, and shine as more and more software takes advantage of multithreading. If you're a gamer, you might be wise to look elsewhere, however, I somehow doubt you would be disappointed.
