Strengths:    Very light. It is only 3 1/2 lbs. The damping system is very good, with 33 clicks of rebound, so incredibly adjustable. The lockout removes the pedaling effects, but if you hit a big bump, it still moves. Unlocked, it absorbes everything with the sag set up properly.

Weaknesses:    Flexy, not incredibly durable. It has a large amount of flex. Going along a boardwalk, you can look down and see the lowers swaying back and forth. Most people think this is bad, which is why I put it as a con, however, I like it. You can dive into a corner, and the springiness of the fork will rocket you out of it way quicker than you came in. The bolt holding on the lockout switch snapped within the first month of use, but was quickly replaced under warrenty

Bottom Line:   
If you have 9mm dropouts, this is it for you. However, MAKE SURE that you know how to properly set sag and rebound, or you will destroy the ride quality. It's that adjustable. I weigh 120 lbs and was happy with about 88 PSI for about 17.5% sag. However, between 15 and 20% is the best, depending on your riding style. For $350 CAD, you can't ask much more, but can expect a whole lot less out of other products. You will be pleasently surprised.
