Ebay Disc Ready Wheelset--Steal or No Deal?

I am upgrading from standard brakes to disc on my Cannondale. The frame is disc mount ready, but not the wheelset. So I've been looking for affordable, yet decent wheelsets at all the big online shops and Ebay. I came across this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Sun-Rhynolite-Bl...2em118Q2el1247

Is this a good deal? Is this wheelset decent? Keep in mind that I live in New Orleans, which means: no mountains, hills, etc. Will be mainly doing paved trails and some singletrack non-paved trails, but pretty tame for the most part. I don't need the lightest wheelset made or top of the line.

Any advice or where to find a decent wheelset online. Any retailers that offer like the lowest prices anywhere? I've already tried Nashbar, Speedgoat, Pricepoint, Cambria, Performance...

Thank!

Solid wheelset, I run these-but they can be had for less, incidentally, from the company I work for: JensonUSA.com.

Yeah, let your fingers do the walking:

http://pricepoint.com
http://chainreactioncycle.com
There are others.

Look in the Marketplace forum of BikeForums.net for coupon codes and stuff.

Since your ebaying, be on the lookout for Mavic Crossrides for a good deal- I picked up a new set with new Avid rotors included for $125 + shipping

Whoops...just read in another thread you found a set of wheels.
