Strengths:    Very good stopping power for the price. Setup once and ride. No need to readjust pads every ride. Quiet even when wet.

Weaknesses:    Lacking in Modulation On/Off but great for one finger riding. Lever adjust screw very soft and rounds easily.

Bottom Line:   
Unless you weigh a lot (i'm 75kg) or do lots of serious downhill they are great. When I first bought them I ended up over the handlebars because they were so strong.
