Bens Cycle Wheel Builds

I am going to be having another set of wheels built up soon and I was wondering if many riders here have gone through Bens Cycle for a custom build. My qoute from them was around $320.00 and for the same build up my qoute from Peter White was 410.00. The price is right from Bens but I was just wondering how thier wheel builds are. The wheels I am ordering are 36h Chukkers laced to Formula Hubs. Thanks in advance for any help.

I've got about 2000 miles of hilly out of seat New England climbing on my Bens wheels and they have not seen a spoke wrench. Pretty stout build - DeepVs, straight gauge spokes, Bens 4-Star (Novatec) hubs. Peter White supposedly is top of his class, but as a frugal Yankee (not Yankee fan) I'd go with Bens and save $90
