Strengths:    Finish is fantastic. Very lightweight (lighter than several carbon stems I looked at). Got it for ~$30, so it was a great deal and gave me the fit I was looking for. Pretty stiff as well.

Weaknesses:    I've heard some rumors that Sunline no longer backs their hard goods (stems, etc.) but I'm hoping I won't have any issues and won't have to cross that bridge.

Bottom Line:   
Performance wise, it's been a fantastic stem and you can't beat the price. It look almost as good as a Thomson, in my opinion, and it's way cheaper. The low weight is great, and it's stiff for the weight.

I suppose my only gripe is that I with it had more of a rise. Running it at -6deg. doesn't give me quite as much drop as I would like, but it has still worked fantastically for me. Minor issue, really.

Strengths:    Beautiful finish. I love looking at it. Strong and light.

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
When I first saw one of these I had to have one. The machine work is excellent and it has survived a few crashes already with no handlebar or steerer tube rotation. I have a 90 at 6 degrees although I think I will switch out to an 80 since I have gone to a wider handlebar and need something slightly shorter. Highly recommended.

Strengths:    Beauty, weight

Weaknesses:    retail price

Bottom Line:   
Bought this new jewelry for my bike. Looks so good I can't take my eyes off of it. It works too. I was looking at Thompson, but this stem really is very similar, the dark grey really looks good, and it perfectly matches my sunline handle bars.
