Looking for a good wheelset

Are these guys pretty reputable?
Heard anything good/bad about this shop?

Or what would you recommend for a deep rim wheelset (less than $3-400 pref.)

wheel&sprocket on ebay is a good retailer. I have a set of their formula/ velocity deepvs.
Call 'em if you want any variations you don't see (machined front, non machined rear) etc

i bought a set of mavic cxp-22's laced to formula hubs for $175 from bicyclewheelsguy on ebay. they're not deep section rims, he sells those too, but the price was right and i'm very happy with them.
