Strengths:    Look good, fast

Weaknesses:    Hubs, very bad front hub

Bottom Line:   
I bought RS80 from Wiggle and loved it. But RS80s are essentially very good rims and spokes laced to very crappy hubs - Ultegra. At some point, very early in the life of a wheelset, if you list your front wheel and spin it,you will feel a lot of vibration on a handlebar and a clicking sound. No matter how much grease and how careful you are adjusting the cones it is there. My old Mavic Axium are smoother. There are two guys in my club riding RS80, the same problems.
But.. RS80 are very fast, great rolling wheels and there is nothing wrong with the rear hub.
