Pros: -No dead pixels upon arrival.
-I notice no glare or bleed.

Cons: -Screen menu isn't the easiest to use.
Other Thoughts: -I don't know how well the speakers work, don't plan to use them. Same with the HDMI settings.READ FULL REVIEW
-Good case design. Temperatures are normal with only 1 intake and 1 exhaust fan.
-Large power supply for no worry additions.
-Inside of case was all nicely done. Wires are zip tied to frame and out of the way of fans.
Processor: Intel Core i7 920
-Idles at 40C; Normal Usage 45C; Max Load 70C
-The temperatures good, don't be worried about them until you idle around 60C.
Graphics Card: EVGA NVIDA 9800+ GTX
-Decent card. Not the best, not the worst(more towards the best).
-Halo, Halo 2, Gunz, Perfect World, Drift City, Rakion all at full settings at 1920x1080!
-EVGA Precision software will allow overclocking from windows. Works great.
Cons: -Comes with stock heat sink + fan for processor.
-Smaller hard drive than I wanted but not a big deal.
-Only one IDE connection on the board. So if you want to use something besides SATA you only have one extra connection.
Other Thoughts: -Don't worry about the i7 carrying the stock fan+heatsink. Everything works out fine and the processor is made to run hotter.
I know a few people that have let it run at about 100C for a few hours and it came out fine.
All in all a very good computer that I recommend to anyone wanting to upgrade to the i7. CyberPowerPC did a very good job here.
As reference I was coming from a Pentium 4 computer.
