I'd rate them as about average. Prices have gone up since they moved to the US, and it seems they still don't have all their "moving issues" figured out, but I'm sure they'll get there.
Kinlin rims are cheap and generally very good for strength/weight but QC is spotty.
DT rims are better than average for QC, but not very interesting otherwise.
Stan's 340s are light and now strong enough and pretty straight.
Hed C2s are the straightest and roundest, but expensive and only >24h.
The HPS Archetypes are almost clones of the Heds but are cheaper, and seem good so far.
The Pacenti SL23 looks like a promising new rim.
