Comments on my new wheelset?

I bought a wheelset on Ebay today. I WAS going to get Larry to build them, but I bid on these ... and won. $512

Anyone -- esp. those kind folks who offered their opinion on another wheelset thread I started -- have any comments?

This wheelset is practically New it has less than 10 miles. It is a hand build, Chris King 32 holes ISO Disc Hub (Blue) Front & Rear. Mavic XC 717 Rims and DT Swiss Competition Black Spokes 2.0/1.8mm & DT blue Aluminum Nipples. Very light and strong, don't miss out on these basically new wheels.

Let's see...

Chris King = crap
717's = total crap
DT spokes = poop
DT nipples = dookie

Everyone knows that the best bike components are made in Japan.

I'll give ya a 20 spot for them just to be nice and take them off your hands.
