From all the previous threads I'll give you a run down:
Somewhat durable (no reports of coming massively out of true after street use)
somewhat light weight.
44mm chainline (non standard)
French threaded lockring
buy em or else cane creek volos. Check bikebiz, they had either volos or ellipses on sale a week ago.

i had to decide on my upcoming wheel purchase as well. the mavics and the volos are similarly priced. i'm springing for the volos, unless i can find some hed3's on ebay before then. the heds would get me lots of funny looks, but damn...
