Strengths:    Price is great
Front and rear shifting is great at this price level
Love the Crank... really stiff

Weaknesses:    Rear shifting lags a bit and is probably impossible to get dialed in perfect
Front shifting still has chain rub in taboo gear combinations

Bottom Line:   
I switched out from a full sora groupo to 5700 since I wanted the extra rear cog for climbing. The upgrade is noticeable and it didn't cost me my life savings. Defiantly a good groupo for a training bike but probably not the best for racing. In my experience, even if you get it dialed in properly there will still be a lag time in shifting, especially shifting from the smallest cog to the 2nd smallest or vice-versa.
Bottom Line: Really hard to complain about this group set at it's price
