Pros: This processor is simply amazing. I went from a 1.6ghz p4 to this, and it blows my socks off. OCed to 3.6ghz with ease, still runs under 30 degress celsius on normal load (iTunes, Photoshop, Illustrator).
Cons: None; see comments.
Overall Review: Horrid experience with shipping; spent eight business days waiting for product.. three-day shipping?, I think not. Also, this both Sony and Intel failed to tell me that this proc's FSB was unsupported by the mobo I had planned to install this on.. so I had to throw together a new machine (RMAing is a waste). Sony, Intel, UPS: Tsk Tsk... Newegg: Keep up the awesome work.
Pros: First of all, this monitor came with my 2001 Sony Vaio and let me just say that it (the monitor) is absolutely fantastic (the computer being at the other end of the spectrum, of course). Beautiful display, as it is a CRT and not LCD, and plenty of options for contrast, brightness, size and everything else. Also, it's lighter than just about every CRT monitor I've ever lifted which is always a major plus with CRTs.
Cons: Make sure you degauss it.. while it doesn't present any obvious problems, display tends to darken a bit after about three days without degauss (but that may be due to having it for five years).
