Knowledge on Rims/Wheelsets needed

Hi Guys,
I’m looking for some new rims/wheelset and would like to know of some experiences on different brands of rims.
Like everybody, I’m working with a budget, so is there much difference between say a “Weinmann DP18” and a “Velocity Deep V” ?
Also, roughly how much would it cost to get rims laced to hubs? (given all the parts are provided?)

Thanks in advance.
