Strengths:    Super smooth, lockout blowoff adjustment.

Weaknesses:    Heavier than a rigid fork. I tried one of those and it was noticeably lighter.

Bottom Line:   
This fork started great and keeps getting plusher. I've got the blowoff set so I can sprint on it, but bumps will only jostle me a little. Add to that a fat tire at medium pressure and you have a great setup for anaerobically charging up the steepest trails around that will take the fear out of the downhills too, even if you forget the fork is locked out.

Strengths:    Typical fox fork, works every time.

Weaknesses:    None so far that I have noticed.

Bottom Line:   
I like how this fork works. I have not had any problems with it so far. I have raced it once so far and liked how the fork worked on the bumpy course. I would recommend Fox to anyone who asks. I do like Fox better than some of the other forks that I have used.
