Strengths:    Smooth ride, maintain speed well, and seem durable.

Weaknesses:    Braking performance seems sluggish

Bottom Line:   
I bought the 808 wheelset from my local LBS as an upgrade fromt he stock wheelset that came with my bike. And in short they are a dream. They smooth out road irregularities such as expansion joints in the road. They handle crosswinds fairly well although you can feel the bike wander just a tad bit. The wheelset really shines the faster you go; you have the sensation that the wheels are pushing you along and it's easy to maintain your speed once you are going.
