Review: Well, I am basing this review on ONLY personal experience. I am not saying that all 2k5 Timmies are bad, I believe that I just had a bad experience.
PRICE- my friend bought his from something like 700. Although, the current price has gone down.
WEIGHT- A nice and light marker. Easy to snap shoot with the lack of weight.
COMFORT- Well, I don't like spyders. The timmy and spyder have a lot in common FEEL WISE, not shooting wise. I don't like long set ups. I just don't. This timmy is a long setup. The trigger frame however is very thin and that felt pretty comfty in the hands.
ACCURACY- With the stock 12 inch assassins barrel. There is nothing to brag about when it comes to accuracy. It shoots darts but does not shoot through breaks well at all. I like 14 inch barrels. Sorry but this is a bad part of the gun.
REG- Well, I don't now, nor have I ever liked torpedo regs. They don't work that well in my honest opinion. They are consistant when REALLY broken in. Out of the box consistency has +/- 10 fps.
SPEED- well, with the Infamous board, the speed is excellent. It just rocks as to how fast it can go. Easy 15 bps with the techna scythe.
STOCK BOARD- The stock board I believe has only semi modes and I think no eye logic. I cannot comment on the stock board because I have only used the Infamous.
EYES- well, here is where it gets REALLY cruddy in the review. The eyes SUCK. I have an ingame experience where the eyes failed me. I just chopped alot. I used a revvy 12 volt with x board, reloader b, halo b with cheetah set on the slowest and highest feed rates possible. It is not the loader. I tried using a new barrel. Paint may have been breaking at the barrel threads. I used a 12 inch stock proto barrel and a 14 inch dye UL barrel. Both had the same results. I tried a different bolt which was the shocktech bolt. This had the same out come. I tried messing with the regs, the same outcome. I tried different paint, SAME OUTCOME. I cleaned the eyes, same out come. My friend bought new eyes, same outcome. Changed the eye sensitivity, same outcome. I am stumped as to what it could be. The detents were changed as well with the same outcome. Also tried an adjustable ram cap with the same results.
FRONT BLOCK- the front block on the timmy I used was very wobbly and that made me mad. Not having any problems except for the normal one of chopping like holy crap.
Conclusion: Overall, until I get the chopping problem fixed, this gun is ONLY OK. Its not great, its not bad. I just very dislike timmies after I used this one. Sorry all of you timmy lovers, this is not going down as a good score. Any queries or suggestions, PM me please.

Did you get an adjustable ram cap? If the bolt sits too far back then sometime you get a one and a half paintball feed into the breech because it rolls back. Resulting in chops.
