Strengths:    Great value for money when.
Rides is great, excellent for cross country trails, good climbing and ride feel.
Weight is fine and standard equipment is also very good and works well, this is the first time I have used SRAM gearing and it is working well

Weaknesses:    Only thing missing is a bit more suspension travel, 120mm+ front and rear would be better.
Standard tires are a bit narrow for my liking

Bottom Line:   
Overall excellent bike

Strengths:    Good spec for the price. Felt good from the first ride.

Weaknesses:    White is a crappy colour for a MTB! Hard to get in and clean around the rear suspension piviots, small frame sizes I normally ride a medium but had to get a large & I'm 5'10". Could be a bit lighter.

Bottom Line:   
I run the rear shock at 20% sag, but it climbs well and does everything I want easily. Doesn't have the plushness or forgiveness of the Yeti when descending, but cant really compare a 4" travel bike to a 6". Over all very happy with it.
