Summary: There are SEVERAL questions I need answerd before buying. Did not see where you take questions on this item .. and I have several. I was interested before I read the fine print, and not enough clear info to buy. Doubt you can use this in your listing.
Summary: I purchase this Pentium 4 for a budget build back in 2009 - it was for a computer that was purely for office/web use, and would see nothing more taxing than microsoft word and Youtube. Still, it is a strong performer.
Summary: Easy to install, though the instructions say 'intended to be professionally installed', I wonder if that means I'm a professional. My system has been running smooth and QUIET, I have check to confirm it's on sometimes. Works great for me.
Summary: Windows XP setup runs in less than 10 min., that 's great. Full system scan by Norton for full 80 GB HD in less than 15 min, that's wonderfull. Espicially with 1 GB Ram DDR2. BUT THAT HORRIBLE SOUND DRIVES ME CRAZY, i think such fan may be used as a coolant undoubtfully for a car engine
Pros: Fast, relatively in fact, til another faster processor is dispached
Cons: Aeroplane, blender, 6.0 L old car engine may be quitter than its fan.. I feel that i'm working in an iron factory
Summary: I just built a brand new top of the line system, and its running a bit slow. Not all the time, but some random functions arent performing at the fastest speeds in the world. I'm a tech, and confirming with others, the biggest reccomendation I have found is to disable the HT technology to increase...
Summary: I did quite a lot research before I bought this CPU. Unless you prefer AMD ones, this is the cpu with highest performance/price ratio. I have used it for 2 months. The one thing i don't like is the fan is kind noisy and hard to intall.
Summary: This is a great processor! It is awesome for everyday tasks and other big programs. I would recommend this processor for everybody. (For hardcore gamers, this processor is okay, I'd suggest an AMD though. Otherwise, buy this!)
