Pros: This is THEEEE chip to get for a cheap HTPC / Light gaming rig. Plenty of power and zip especially paired with at least 8GB of DDR3 1600 RAM. I won't need a graphics card or more RAM for a while. Netflix , YouTube , Hulu , mild / moderate gaming...you name it. This baby has got you covered. If you do a lot of multi-tasking , go fo the quad-core. You can't really go wrong with FM2.
Overall Review: You can build a great gaming rig or HTPC rig for cheap these days with the FM2 socket thanks to AMD.

Pros: Comfortable. Good design. DPI buttons on mouse. Nice indented/clicking mouse wheel.
Cons: TERRIBLE reception. Terrible response. Constant connectivity issues. Interference. Have tried adjusting DPI , keeping other wireless devices away. Nothing works. Even when I turn it on or off 4-5 times a day , that sometimes doesn't work. Drivers? Heh.
Overall Review: Bought this in July / August 2011. Worked good at first. Just keeps getting worse.
