Can't comment on the Zipps but I've got RS80 C24s, done over 4,000km on them now with no problems whatsoever, they're significantly lighter and stiffer than the R500s they replaced.

How about alloy zipps that got so hot that the rim strip melted into all the spoke holes and the tube exploded... Lol.

I've got zipp 404 carbon clinchers for everyday use. I'm pretty impressed with them. Haven't noticed any of the braking issues people mention with carbon wheels. They roll really nice too...

I know two people who have got them, both have had VERY EARLY hub failures. neither would recommend them. neither are heavy, both do big kms.
