Strengths:    ~Long lower rail clamps
~Precise tilt adjustmet
~One bolt design
~Reversible setback
~Composite version as light as Thomson Elite...but stronger than Thomson Masterpiece

Weaknesses:    Can be heavy - all-alloy version

Bottom Line:   
Depending on which 2010 Giant you purchase - be aware there are TWO DIFFERENT versions of this seatpost:

1) Connect SL - OEM on 2010 Giant Anthem X Advanced SL1, a 250g alloy/composite post in 375mm length.

2) Connect SL - OEM on 2010 Giant Anthem X/1/2, a heavy 330g 6061 alloy post in 375mm length.

I traded-up this post to Giant's race-worthy Contact SLR...lighter than Easton EC90, strong as Thomson Masterpiece.
