Strengths:    Convertible to all different types of rear axles, easily serviced without tools, nice reliable star ratchet design, pretty light, very quiet.

Weaknesses:    Slow engagement - and $100 extra to get ratchet upgrade for better engagement.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this hub to replace a Bitex hub that imploded after 2 seasons. My criteria in choosing a new hub were reliability, performance, convertibility, ease of maintenance, weight, noise, and cost. The DT hub meets all of those. Mostly. The star ratchet should be reliable. This was the most important factor to me - the rear hub is one of the more complex parts of a bike and very difficult and costly to change if it fails. I wanted to get away from the pawl/spring type freehubs like Bitex, Hope and many others use, after being burned by the Bitex hub. The hub is easily and cheaply converted by changing end caps. It can be serviced without tools. It is fairly light weight. It's very quiet. It's available for around $200. I can probably live with the slow engagement based on the other positives. I would have given this hub 5 stars if DT just included the 36t ratchet with the hub or didn't charge $100 for the upgrade. Next time I'll probably try Hope instead - 40t engagement (built in-no $100 upgrade required) and similiarly priced.
