Cooling wise: Pretty good. Better then the stock HSF which came with my AMD A6. Idle temp is just a degree or 2 above ambient (~29 degC), with an RPM of 715 or so. Max temp after installation (running P95) was 73 with an RPM of ~2000. You're not going to overclock with this thing (not very far, anyway) but as a quiet replacement for a stock cooler, it performs admirably.
Sound wise: At low RPM it's essentially inaudible. At high RPM it is audible, but it's a 'pleasant' sound, not a high pitch whine, just a rush of air. Almost white-noise like. Still pretty quiet though.
Size wise: It's Low and wide. Perfect to fit in my HTPC. But as mentioned, if you have heat spreaders on your DIMMs, it will interfere. Unfortunately I had heat spreaders. *Had*. I hope I don't need to send my RAM back, because there's no way they'll accept them now! Arguably the RAM won't need the spreaders... since the fan over-hangs the RAM, the air flow should help keep them cool.
Fitting: Has the parts and instructions for just about every socket out there. Was hoping it'd just clip on, but every socket will require you take the Mobo out to install the back plate. No getting around that. Comes with thermal paste, but I bought some AS5 to use instead. Finish on the HS is mirror flat.

Summary: A well performing, super quiet, low-profile HSF. Just don't have RAM with heat spreaders.

Update: After a couple of weeks of bedding in, stress testing my CPU with Prime95 raises the temp to a max of 65deg with case temp of 44. Idle of around 43 with the case temp of 35.

I installed this cooler on an AM3 board (which it will fit, although not listed in the description). First off, it is huge! Nearly touches the top fan in my case and hangs over the memory. I had to remove the ram heatspreaders in order to install this cooler, but this should not cause much concern as most heatspreaders exist for aesthetic purposes and the fan will be cooling the ram as well. I was able to perform the install without removing the mother board from my case but it certainly wasn't easy. Make sure to plug in the fan power before installing! Overall, the process of removing my old cpu cooler and installing the Big Shuriken took about 30 minutes. After installation, which was a slight pain, I have no complaints about this cooler. It runs very quiet and cool, even under a heavy load. Definitely worth the price if you can get around the difficulty installing (which probably wouldn't exist if you installed on a fresh build, out of the case).

I agree with everything the previous reviewer, DanL, says. I struggled with getting the push pins in for an hour only to realize that the heatsink hangs over the memory sockets of my motherboard, making it impossible to install DIMMS which themselves include a heat sink in 2 of the memory slots, making it impossible to use 2 DIMMS in dual channel memory mode. I have no choice but to get another heat sink.

This product is ok for thermal performance but fitting is awful.

It uses the same expanding push pin system as the stock Intel cooler, but because the radiator and fan are large and top mounted, these pins are hidden underneath the radiator with no top access. You therefore have to reach in from the side to push the pins down into the locked position, and there is barely room for a finger tip from the top of the pin to the bottom of the fins. On my board the RAM (which has to be installed first) blocks access from one side.
In addition to the difficulty of access, the pins needed a lot of force to close: enough that you HAVE TO support the mother board directly under the pin or risk damaging it. Because you are accessing the pins from the side it is quite hard to apply this level of force, straight down and with good contol. The force required was at least twice that for the stock cooler.

To round off the package is the release mechanism: the pins need to be turned to release them and a slot for a screwdriver is moulded in the top to allow this, but as you will have gathered there is no way to access this slot, and there is no way you can get your fingers in to turn the top of the pin by hand: the only way i found was to use a pair of fine long nose pliers, and to get access with these, yep, you got it, motherboard out again. Bear in mind that you will need to remove the heat sink to change or upgrade the RAM.

The upshot of the above is the there is no hope of installing this product with the motherboard in place despite the push pin style fixing, and it is also very difficult to remove.

Gave me a lot of trouble just 2 years after I used it. Finally died on me. Never buying this brand again.
