Strength:

Really cheap for carbon fiber cycling shoes
Good looks
Carbon sole on those is great
Ventilation hole underneath helps a lot in hot weather and when it's pouring it's good to have a hole from where water can exit.

Weakness:

No buckle straps
Had some hotspots at first(2months), but then disappeared because the sole took the shape of my feet.

Really great value for what that cheap price. Had them for an year and a half, no problems. Had to trim the straps a bit because I have narrow feet and I like to wear them really tight. Great I can really feel that carbon sole, it's really different from a plastic one. The only downside is that I experienced some hotspots at first(maibe because of me liking them tight)

Strength:

3 decent straps that are ofset for the best fit. Super stiff. Look good for the money.

Weakness:

Not the lightest. You will have to shell out some dosh if that is what you are after.

I use these shoes for my commuter and winter training bike. I bought them as they were good value and were not white for the winter roads! They are certainly stiff. There is not an ounce of flex. This maybe too much for some. They are way stiffer then any Specialized shoe.

Strength:

Strong shoe with little to no flex. Well made, has been through winter and summer and it still looks new!

Weakness:

A little heavy. Would like a buckle strap.

Really well built. Has 3 velcro straps that allow a snug but comfortable fit.
Carbon sole is good any out there.
