Summary: The used processor looked like new upon arrival. It is funcioning up to full expectations. It breathed new life into an old computer headed for recycling. It was well worth the low cost investment.
Summary: I had a Pentium 2 die on me (it didn't like chocolate milk!), so I had to build a new system without money. If I had to built, I wanted a machine to be an upgrade from what I had, but I still had to keep cost in mind. I bought this processor and it's been running strong.
Pros: Very Fast and Reliable. Not a single problem yet!
Cons: AMD's heat monitoring- they don't have that feature in their processors like Intel does. I don't think AMD has temperature monitoring in any of their processors, so it's not like this one is a defect
Summary: this processor is one of the best ive used, with its ability to work with games and 3d graphics it helps improve your gaming plasure. with XP you can keep the pc on days and not drop in that much speed.
Pros: excellent speed, beats pentium, runs great with xp
Summary: I have owned this processor for more than a year now and have incurred ZERO problems with this processor. It is more than powerful enough to handle any games you might want to play and do anything with graphics and playing with videos.
Summary: In reply to the review from "dancindiggity": This dude says it best: The entire P4 story is one of the worst things to ever take place in CPU history - maybe THE worst. Its' probably the first CPU designed by the marketing dept, instead of engineers. It's a product designed by a cynical company.
Pros: Beats Pentium 4 hands down! Read below and find out for yourself some hard facts why the Pentium 4 is inferior to even the Pentium 3. You have got to be an idiot to buy Intel's Pentium 4 after reading this!
Cons: Why do they even put weaknesses for AMD processor reviews? They do indeed need it on Intel's reviews! LOL!
Summary: I own both a Pentium4 and an Athlon XP 1800. Although the XP is a faster processor, it fails in comparison. It's lacking BIG TIME in the multimedia department. It spudders through 3D games, has very poor video capabilities, and makes digital music sound like an 8-Track player.
Summary: I have used XP 1600+ and 1800+ and they have been great. If you want a processor that is affordable, and dependable than Athlon XP is the way to go. They have Intel beat in all directions including speed, and price.
Summary: It's the new AMD Athlon. Although its only 1.53 ghz, it beats the snot out of almost any Intel cpu, similarly or even higher clocked. If you want to read a professional review, I suggest visiting Tom's Hardware Guide at www.tomshardware.com/c...
