If you're looking to replace some Campagnolo cups, you probably don't have any choice other than to get a set of these (or one of the other Campagnolo variants), so a review is not particularly helpful other than to confirm compatibility and offer fitting advice.
I used these to replace the cups that came with a Campagnolo Mirage (Ultra-Torque) groupset. They fit perfectly. My old cups looked like they were plated with some kind of shiny metal, and this plating had peeled off and started to corrode. The new ones look like they made from a different material, so they _might_ be more robust. It'll take another winter with salted roads to know for sure.
Some very slight niggles:
* The colour is not silver as pictured, it is a very slightly yellowish gun metal. The silver ones don't seem to be available anywhere anyway, so you're probably stuck with gun metal unless you can find someone with some old stock.
* The cups are surprisingly soft. I managed to scratch the surface of the cups using my fitting tool, though I don't have an official Campagnolo one so this could just be my own fault.
Be careful when you remove your old cups. One of mine was very firmly stuck in the frame. I had to drill a hole through the side of it and fit a small nut and bolt so I could get traction with an adjustable spanner. (Yes, it was a bodge, but nothing else worked for me.) The indentations on the old cups had corroded to the point that there was nothing left for my fitting tool to grip. Be very careful that you don't damage your frame when you do this!
