Like the Proton, Sciroco, or Zonda?
Sure, but are they worth the money?Kerry Irons

Given that you can buy a Velocity Aerohead/Ultegra pre-built wheel for $210, or a Open Pro/Chorus for $290, it's hard to justify the price for any factory built wheel set.

There are numerous websites where factory wheelsets can be purchased at even lower prices than custom wheelsets.
Taking this into account, I would say the price difference is a non-issue. To answer the original question; yes, entry level Campagnolo wheelsets are very good. I ride the Sciroccos and am very pleased with them. Fairly light weight (1830 g) and 30mm deep rims. A very nice all-around wheelset.
Protons use Chorus hubs and cost $300.dzrider

The Protons accelerate better and require no more maintenance. I think the looks alone are worth $10.00. The only reason I'd prefer Open Pros is for the fun of building them.
