Strength:

What a great package. Cartridge damper and air spring. Easily serviceable without specialty tools. DVO customer service is amazing. Love the OTT tuning feature and the damper is great. Stout package with high quality everything and it comes professionally built (unlike the big guy's parts). Tire clearance is great on the boost fork. Full retail is about the same as comparable forks from the other companies but you can find it on sale for less than the comparables.

Weakness:

The weight is on the high side.

Strength:

Damping is just about perfect
OTT negative spring lets you fine tune preload without problem-prone dual air or having to take apart the fork

Weakness:

Tire clearance
A lot more expensive than its competitors

This is for the 29" non-boost version:

The damper is the best I've ever ridden. It just works, controls the spring, not at all spikey... I don't think I really understood what people meant by "arm pump" till I rode this fork and realized how much I was getting on my various RS and Fox forks.
OTT, once the seals are broken in is amazing. Fixed negative springs don't work for anyone who's not average weight. Solo air works ok, but offers no fine tuning options (you have near-zero preload if you want it or not). The old dual air worked but was failure prone.
The black on black finish looks nice. The kind of thing where if someone knows what's up, they know what it is, but it doesn't scream 'look at me'

now the bad: tire clearance. A 2.4" Geax Goma rubs on the arch. A 2.3 WTB breakout barely clears - if I pick up any mud/dirt it rubs. This is supposed to be an enduro fork, that little clearance is ridiculous; and in spite of how much I like the suspension, I can't really recommend this fork because of it.
