Pros: Works as it should, overclockable and powerful. Not much more to say than that since you know what you are getting. Once I got a working one everything was fine. The reps for the RMA were very helpful at Newegg.
Cons: First one was DOA but would still post to the BIOS which was really weird. As soon as I tried to have it load an OS it would freeze during the splash screen. Windows 8, 7 and xp all had the same issue. Went through a slew of testing including doing an RMA on the Motherboard assuming that since I can get into the BIOS it wouldn't be the CPU. I tried different RAM, PSU, drives, no drives, different optical drive, all giving the same result. I didn't have a spare 1150 CPU so as the last part that has been consistent through the troubleshooting I finally RMA'd that and on the first boot I had perfect success. My understanding in the past was that if a CPU was bad you wouldn't post to BIOS but in this instance I got up to that point with no issue.
Other Thoughts: DOA CPU was from Costa Rica.
Good CPU was from Malaysia.
People have made mention of the differences with using them so I feel its important to note for other users.
Pros: Got it for 125$ on the promo here a few weeks ago so it was a great price. Finds the video source pretty quick and the monitors them selves look great. Both aesthetically and the actual display quality itself. I picked up 2 for my dual setup and couldn't be happier. Also its only like an inch thick which saves a bunch of desk space for me. Not much else can be said except they're a great choice for a budget dual setup.
Cons: No height adjustment or swivel.
Other Thoughts: If the 2 cons bother you, it does have holes for mounting onto wall mount or swing arm.READ FULL REVIEW
