It's pretty bad, IMHO. I've got a very low tolerence for dubs though, so I
may not be the best person to ask =)
After having watched the whole series subbed, as much as I dislike the Wing
characters, the japanese seiyuu do a good job on the voices and are
reasonably convincing. Too many of the Wing voices were not right in
comparison. Zechs was the worst, and Treize was the best from what I heard.
In speaking to people who haven't seen the subbed version, most of my
friends (who are again, sub fans) found the dub laughably bad ... I picked
up the first Wing DVD to support Gundam in North America (I won't be buying
the rest) and when I showed it to a few people at an anime weekend at my
place, it was really only entertaining because of how much fun we were
making of it :P

Now ... that's my opinion of it. For people who prefer dubs, or don't mind
them, the general vibe I get is it's between "average" and "good", with
occasional moments of reaaaaaall badness (Zechs at the start, I hear he gets
a bit better), to quite good.
