Shimano carbon pedals - Thoughts?

So, I need new pedals for my new track bike build. I just bought a set of the Shimano 105 carbon pedals for my road bike. I can get these for a great deal right now. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts were. Thanks!

They work well- I've got no complaints about them.
Having used alloy pedals and the corresponding carbon pedals for 5700, 7800, 6700, 6800, & 9000... there aren't enough functional differences between them to bother with.

Not a common problem for track pedals, but on the off chance- I'd probably stay away from the Dura Ace ones- the needle bearings are more of a pain to rebuild than Ultegra or 105.
