abe's link is pretty self explanatory, but if you really want to hear it from some users, ill chime in!

Pros:
-way better life!
-way better life!
-way better life! (dare I say it again?)
-remove that awful "bloatware" apps on your phone you probably never use
-with custom ROMs comes better custom Themes, take REAL control over device
-services.jar tweaks, remove data throttling
-remove ads!
-and head over to the ROM section, you will see how much fun we have!

Cons:
-its may consume part of your social life, it can get pretty addicting... lol
-you violate your verizon's terms of service, but who cares, there are ways around it!

I think pretty addicting could be the understatement of the year. lol

But yea Abe's link is great. My personal experience is that it just makes the X a much better device and gives you more control over "YOUR" phone.
