    In one phrase?

    Wickedly fast on tiger.

    It is shocking really, the sound is good too, btw how on earth do you open the disk drive with a non Apple Keyboard?

    Is there a CD/DVd in the drive? That should be a slot load. If nothing is there, there will be no need to eject. Once you insert a CD/DVD, you just drag it to the trash, or Right (or CTRL) Click on the icon and click Eject. Also there is Eject in the Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities.

    Also with a Disc in the drive from Finder and File there is an Eject also.

    Sorry, I always thought the emac was a Slot loader! Me bad!

    Someone will probably give you an easier way but look at the File Pull Down in Finder up in the bar by the Apple. See if Eject is there. If not like I said for now, open Disk Utility and hi light the optical drive and see if you can press eject.

    This might help also.

    That worked,thanks.:
    EDIT:
    Ok, So I have been using it for a while after wiping it and installing Tiger-server, Some impressions:
    1: it is fast(faster than a DP 2.0 G5 running Leopard for example),boot is quick too.
    2: Support for the PPC Mac is not dead! I installed Firefox and Opera 10.63 and it plays HTML5 very well, Grooveshark is very usable *(Once again,faster and better sounding then leopard G5 with Flash 10 on the old non html5 Grooveshark.)
    3:Speaking of music...The Speakers are incredible! It's a very good reproduction of the sound, it's playing Barber's Adagio for Strings right now, it sounds great.
    4:That is the best looking CRT I have ever seen!, You would think it's a LCD.
    Thanks guys for your Support, I don't regret the purchase at all.

    Well....I would say that's debatable...we would have to run some benchmarks to be sure...but if you're happy...that's all that matters. A 1.42ghz processor running 10.4 should have pretty acceptable performance.

    Great sound is always a plus!

    Sounds like you got a good one! CRT's many times are the first thing to go on these things...glad you're pleased with the picture.

    I've got two eMac's (a 700mhz & a 1.25ghz)...and the picture/display are great on both as well. I think that the "flat" screen helps a lot.

    Congrats on your fine purchase,

    Well what I meant by faster than a g5 was that it runs tiger better than the g5 runs leopard, from my experience that is, I have seen some low ram limits but it's not too bad.

    I understand...the eMac with Tiger just seems "snappy"!

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
