Has anyone ridden these wheels, and if so what are your thoughts? Link in case you're curious...

Actual weights? Easton claimed at 1530g
How is the braking? and brake track?
Durability? broken spokes, hubs, bearings, etc
Seeing I can get the set for about $1k, what other options are out there in 30-60mm clinchers with similar performance, price and weight?
They are reasonably light and the claimed weight numbers are accurate.
My wheelset has about 700km on them without any issues thus far. I,m 200lbs and ride mostly flats to rolling hills.
They are staying true and roll really well.
If you have wheel building experience and the time you could build a wheelset that is just as good or better for the same price or cheaper.
If you don't ride in the rain and don't go down steep descents, the EC90SL is a nice set of wheels. In the rain or the steeps, they are not the answer. Easton replaced the melted wheel under warranty and then I sold them.
I should have included this info in the original post:
I live in South Florida so there will be no descending on these wheels, although there will most likely be rain. Also, I plan to build a nice set of ~1300 Alu clinchers to use if it does rain, or when i go vacation to places of potential climbing/descending, as I might be going to the North Carolina mountains for spring break and plan on taking my bike if I do, and possibly a summer internship somewhere with hills.
Also considering the EC90 Aero 56mm Clincher, or any similar suggestions others may have.
Or maybe, a 38mm front 56mm rear. It does get pretty windy down here (30-40 mph gusts) so I'm thinking a shallower front may be better for riding in the crosswinds. I am 6'1'' 165lbs so I do occasionally get blown around a bit in the higher wind gusts.
What other suggestions does anyone have in the 40mm-60mm range
