8 Spd Ultegra opinions?rockbender

I am looking at a used bike that has 8 spd Ultegra STI gear on it. I understand the parts availability and compatibility issues, but am wondering more about the functionality of the 8 speed components of this era.

Any experience / insight?

I've had it on my rain/beater bike for the last 3 or 4 years, and it has always worked really well. It didn't get as many miles as my main bike in that time, but it didn't get nearly as much maintenance either, so I'd say it's pretty tough stuff.
