Formula Xero XR-1 wheelset: gem or junk?Won4theroad

Does anyone have first-hand experience with this wheelset? These are the 16-spoke wheels that Supergo sells for $219. Previous input has been generally positive, but feedback was mostly based on first impressions of recent purchases. Has anyone put significant miles on these wheels?

I bought mine at Supergo a couple of months ago. I currently have about 800 miles on them. I haven't had any problems so far. They've remained true. The rims are Velocity deep V's. At 1800gr, it's not a real light wheelset, but for $209, I wasn't expecting superlight wheels. I did some research on the web before buying them and other people have claimed that the Velocity and Bianchi Levitation are the same wheels.
I should also add that I'm 150lbs so I'm not real hard on wheels.
