Pros: After encountering problems with an Intel Duo-Core temperature, I decided to try the new AM2 socket with some PC800 memory, and the testbench scores proved as pleasant as the lowered temperature--AMD has a winner! For the money, the 64X2s are as good in their price range as is possible, and the introduction of DDR memory to the platform offers many more choices. I waited for that option before I chose AMD again, and the results speak for themselves!
Cons: Currently the price for higher CPU clock speed and bigger L2 cache is beyond my means, but its only time until the next generation proc will make me regret not waiting!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Absolutely the best deal (as of 3/07) on a widescreen 20", the Sceptre X20 comes out of the box ready to rock! It has a self-adjusting feature that automatically centers text display regardless of resolution. Wide-format monitors are not worth it in any size less than 20", and the bright, clear image & extra desktop realestate makes it a must for any graphics aspirations. Newegg has a yoke of gold with this offer!
Cons: Base stand was a bit resistant to assembly. Nothing in the instruction book to notify the removeable plastic cover over the connections in the back of the unit, but once that is discovered, cable connections were easy.
Other Thoughts: Hope Sceptre makes a different base to give it more vertical flexibility, and a better instruction manual (but then, who DOES put out a GOOD instruction manual any more?).READ FULL REVIEW
