Any experience with DiaTech hubs?

I just picked up a set of DiaTech hubs. They were brand new and a trade for parts I wasn't going to use anyway so I figured "why not". I can't find much at all about them online, though. From what little bit I've found, I think they are the SLV hubs. Are these worth lacing to some rims just for the sake of having matching hubs and sealed bearings or should I not go to the trouble? Right now I've got a Shimano Deore rear hub and a cheap-ish front hub that I can't seem to identify.

Post pics and/or model number. That would help out a little bit.

IMHO, it's not worth the effort to replace the Shimano Deore unless you're going high end. The front hub is another situation.
