I have only found this to be effective in particular circumstances - bug finding and fixing, usually of something old or convoluted.

This is because four eyes are better than one.

It doesn't work for green field development because all necessary design decisions should have been made before coding and thus it just becomes an exercise in minor coding-style conflict resolution which impairs the ability to think clearly.

Of course - segregated pair development (where one person writes the (TDD?) unit tests for the other's code and vice versa) is a different matter.
