Strength:

Cheap, light, and quick pawl engagement.

Weakness:

Not durable - did not hold up to normal cross country use. Bead groove should be a touch deeper to allow easy tire change. Inconsistent spoke tension out of the box. Trek customer service is unresponsive to manufacturer defect claims. There are better competitor products for the same price. I rode mine for 190 miles before a rim strike broke the rear wheel. It was not a hard hit; it was the type of knock that would typically cause a pinch flat but no rim damage. The bead edge split and the wheel delaminated on the side. LBS opened a warranty and replace claim. Trek did not respond; it was later discovered the claim had been denied and closed without a response. These certainly are not durable, and I cannot recommend these wheels for mountain bike use. Read the Bikeradar review of Line Pro 30 wheels before you buy. They broke 3, but Bikeradar is a paid reviewer so they were replaced gratis. Not mine.

Strength:

I got a good deal on these from a shop and put them on my then current bike, a Specialized Stumpjumper 29er. After putting them through the abuse of a Swedish winter with snow and mud whilst riding my local trails they were performing effortless. They were super easy to set up tubeless, with Bontrager's supplied valves, Stan's sealant and Specialized Tires. During my first ride coming from Specialized's supplied alu rims that came on the stumpy the difference was major, they were a lot stiffer but not to the point where your hands hated you for the remainder of the ride. And the close to instant engagement with the 108 PoE rear hub was a nice feature on some tricky climbs. This spring I upgraded to a Enduro 29er and swapped on these wheels to see how they would handle more chunky terrain. They have stayed on my Enduro the last few month's standing up to everything from bikepark to enduro riding. So after 1 year of riding these in various terrain I would recommend them to anyone looking for a "cheap" complete carbon wheelset.

Weakness:

My only gripe with these Is more of a personal issue. When first picking these up I was a fan of louder hubs, like a nice pair of Hope or DT's. But when actually riding them for longer periods of time I'm starting to find the noise annoying. But if you like the sound of a angry was in your rear hub, this is the one.
