REI commuter wheel

So I solicited your opinions on a budget Shimano Alivio rear derailleur for my commuter bike. And frankly, I was surprised and encouraged with the numerous positive responses. Well now how about the budget rear wheel I picked up at REI? It's a WTB Double Duty rim laced to a Shimano Deore hub with 15 guage spokes.

Anyone run one of these wheels, or have an opinion on either the rim or the hub? Even though I know I'll be checking spoke tension and trueness out of the gate, I think it was a decent deal for $55.
