Strengths:    Weight
Smooth
Fast


Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I was using a SRAM PG950 11-26 cassette on Shimano 105 rear derailleur for about 4 months and both things never clicked right. It was OK. Then I switch to the Ultegra 11-25 (I used the 11 cog from my SRAM cassette) and the difference was 100%. Right away the shifting was flawless and fast. The cassette is very light compare to my old SRAM cassette. I would recommend it to someone who is looking for something fast, smooth, and light. This is a good cassette for the serious racer or commuter.

Strengths:    Fairly light weight
Solid reputation
Smooth shifting


Bottom Line:   
This is a nice cassette, although I think the chrome plating cheapens the look compared to the "machined" look of the Dura ace. Regardless, it shifts smoothly and is farily light. I have used the 12-25 in the past and changed to the 12-27 a while ago as the larger gear really helps on long(14mile) climbs.
The SRAM is equally well as I use their chains (gold link) exclusively. They shift and run smoother with Shimano casettes than the Shimano chains, in my opinion
