Strengths:    Smooth, plush travel and a chunky style.
Good rebound, which can be adjusted externally.
Reasonably light, its easy to pick the front of the bike up for jumps and drop-offs.

Weaknesses:    Can be a bit to soft at times, no external compression adjustment, so its quite hard to make them harder, you have to change the springs/oil wieght.

Bottom Line:   
Good fork, reasonably cheap and a pleasure to ride.
They can take quite a beating and be fine.
One problem is the lack of Stratos service centers in the south west.
