On the look out for a fixed rear wheel for a bike that I am building and was considering buying this

Does anyone have any experience of this wheel or any better alternatives for a cheap build?
Thanks

    You won't go far wrong on a generic Joytec/Formula hub built with regular 32 hole road rim - should be able to pick up a pair for £100-120. Quality of build is important for durability.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Thanks.
    This link should work (I hope).

    I'm not worried about weight at the moment as I don't even know that I will like riding fixed, the idea is a cheap build for the wet winter months so I don't trash the good bikes
