5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Great deal for upgrades. Most of the Socket 478 computers are too old for most people to upgrade
but if you need more for your Optiplex or Dimension Desktops this is it. I upgraded from the original 3.2 Celeron to this P4 and felt like i had a new machine.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Make sure you chipset is configured for the Northwood make. Northwood and Prescott are not inter-changeable.

4 out of 5 eggswish it was cheaper

Pros: Nice upgrade for my 1.8ghz P4(256L2 cache,400FSB). This chip is 1ghz faster, double the L2 cache(512K) and 533FSB. PC feels like a new machine.

Cons: Price & value. For around the same price you could buy a much faster newer chip, but if like me and you want to get a bit more time out of your old machine this is a good choice.

Other Thoughts: Dimension 2400 is much faster now.

4 out of 5 eggsGood replacement

Pros: Easy Instal, no driver or BIOS issues.

Cons: Performance is minimal over a 2.53gh pent 4.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded this from a 2.53 to get just a little more out of my pc, however, it didnt seem to give me much at all. So if you are thinking about upgrading your CPU on an old 478, just wait until you can get a new duel or quad core pc.

3 out of 5 eggsOK for its day

Pros: Works. More than enough for basic office applications; will easily run stuff like Unreal Tournament 2004 if you have the graphics card to match. A good upgrade option for a legacy Socket 478 board.

Cons: The entire Netburst marketecture was a mistake, producing high temperatures and clock speeds at the cost of real-world performance. The C-series Northwoods were actually pretty good thanks to Hyperthreading and an 800-MHz FSB; as a B-series Northwood, however, this P4 lacks Hyperthreading support, and the 533-MHz FSB chokes this bandwidth-hungry beast. Let's face facts: this chip is obsolete. It was made obsolete by the 2.8C, and that was 5 years ago.

Other Thoughts: This is an upgrade option for an old computer, NOT something to build a new system with. For a new system, a Conroe-L Celeron is cheaper, faster, and much cooler; an Allendale Pentium, similar in cost and heat output to the 2.8C, is SEVERAL TIMES as fast.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Excellent processor. I've had it for almost two years now and has worked great ever since. I have it over clocked to 3.31ghz and its running perfect. Just a few degrees over what it normally runs at.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a great budget processor for anyone looking to upgrade from a single-core.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Performs as advertised

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Updated a older Dell 4550 machine that was donated to me. Took out the older 2.0GHZ P4 400 mhz FSB and dropped this in. Instant speed increase. This is a cheap way to keep an older machine viable.

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy!

Pros: This was the first cpu I've used for my own custom built pc. It was nice moving from my outdated Sony Vaio to this.

Cons: Maybe the low cache?

Other Thoughts: I pieced this with 2gb of pc3200 memory on an old Fujitsu Siemens board I had ordered a year or 2 before. I found the board one day and decided to finally put something together. Best pc I'd used until I got my wife this pentium D dual core. Working on an e8400 now.
