Strengths:    Cheap, gets the job done, doesn't require constant adjustment. Easy adjustment.

Weaknesses:    SO. MUCH. CHAIN SLAP.

Bottom Line:   
This derailleur is great for the price, but doesn't belong on the mountain. Perfect for commuting. Shadow does its job at keeping a low profile. Looks cool. Durability is lacking. Being replaced immediately. Hopefully I will see better quality out of the XT version.

Strengths:    Crisp shifting, strong derailleur (mine has several war wounds on the cage), not too heavy

Weaknesses:    The cage is long and there is no mid-cage option. Interestingly, the price seems to have be at or near MSRP as 10 speed equipment has trickled to Deore level.

Bottom Line:   
I have owned many derailleurs on bikes and I specifically like this one and the SLX version. SLX is very similar in shifting, but has 1 aluminum and 1 steel side of the cage. Unless I look down, I could not tell which I was using. The shifting has been very crisp and as a result, I bought a few spares when they were onsale. I recommend it, unless SLX is the same price, then I'd get SLX.
