Strengths:    You forget it exists. It is just there and it does what it needs to do as you command it.

Weaknesses:    Chorus performs just as well and for the weight difference of a few grams you may seriously consider the dollar amount.

Bottom Line:   
I had to try it to believe it. Ok it looks nice (I prefer the older one with carbon fiber only on the knuckle) but the thing is just smooth. You even have to carefully listen to its soft sound and it sounds like a musical instrument. I thought I was being whimsical and felt guilty buying such an expensive setup, but once you try it you get a good feeling where your money goes. It is almost like a seamless continuous shifting system when you only feel the change in resistance on the cranks after each click.

Strengths:    Perfectly invisible.

Weaknesses:    It doesn't have a battery-powered servo motor to help up the hills.

Bottom Line:   
The hightest compliment I can give a component is that it's invisible. This RD has been the most forgettable piece of my drivetrain for 4 years of hard training and ~30 races per season. It's never been rebuilt, rarely cleaned, and it works with all the complication of a ball-peen hammer.

Strengths:    Excellent shifting
Excellent durability
Beautiful workmanship

Weaknesses:    Too pretty to get dirty

Bottom Line:   
Shifts crisply, consistently. Took 1500-2000 miles to break in but that hints at the longevity you can expect (my old rear Record derailleur has ~85,000 miles - with only new jockey wheels - and still shifts buttery-smooth).
I didn’t want 10 speeds (Jeez, guys, c’mon, how many is enough??) but I do use them. Having 8 useful cogs per chainring takes some getting used to but it's growing on me.
The polished aluminum and lacquered carbon fiber are almost too pretty to use. Almost.
It doesn’t feel like it shifts better than my old 8-sp, but it does. It has to shift better just to execute as well because the 10-speed’s tolerances for a nice, crisp shift are much tighter.

Strengths:    Durability, precision, good looks

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This derailleur is a real performer. Combined with the record levers, the shifting is nothing else I have experienced. If you crash and break something, every single part is avaliable. As an investment in quality, it should last a lifetime.
