Strengths:    Durable.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I've raced three seasons of CX on these wheels (Stevens Team Cyclocross carbon) and they've outlasted two forks, one seat post, one front and one rear derailleur (SRAM Red) and one frame. Seriously, they're the only part of my ride that takes a CX licking and keeps on ticking. I have them set up on Stans Notubes.

Training rides are done on Sierra Nevada single track with lots of gnarly granite "pebbles". I have yet to replace a spoke even need to true a wheel. Love them.

Strengths:    Have had the System 30 wheelset for a year (7000+kms) and recently the rear wheel developed a creaking / popping noise under load. Contacted Keith at Williams Cycling and was sent a new freehub the same day...no charge. Fixed the problem right away. Can't say enough about the customer service. These guys are a pleasure to deal with.

Weaknesses:    No weakness in customer service.

Bottom Line:   
You won't be disappointed dealing with this distributor.

Strengths:    Price, easy to repair, semi-aero, stay true

Weaknesses:    durability

Bottom Line:   
Decent wheels for the price. I have had the 30X almost 2 years and roughly 7-8,000 miles with my weight generally being 205lbs. They have been used on the road with the occasional smoothish dirt road. I have found them to be reasonably stiff but not the stiffest wheels I've used (stiffer than the stock wheel on my Pinerello). When up to speed (20+mph) the bladed spokes and semi-aero rims make a notable difference in maintaining speed compared to my more standard wheels. No major problems with them coming out of true or spokes coming loose. However, I have had 2 of the nipples break on the rear wheel (separate rides) but these where easily fixed.

Strengths:    Keith Williams is great for service.

Weaknesses:    The wheels while billed as bullet proof are far from this. In 2 seasons I have had 5 broken spokes and now the rear rim has 4 spoke holes with cracks. The wheels roll nice but are not stiff enough or strong enough to handle hard pounding climbs without flexing. The 30X's might work for light weight guys under 180 lb's but they don't hold up for 200lb riders.Try Rol race SL's, before you waste your money on williams 30x's.

Bottom Line:   
If your a big rider the Williams 30X is not the wheel for you!
