Good power (on a 26er), simple, easy to adjust and work on, inexpensive.
Not much modulation, noisy, rotors a bit heavy.
I put over 1000 miles on a bike that had these and they did the job. They had plenty of stopping power and were pretty reliable. They did need adjustment every once in a while but it didn't help that I had my front wheel out A LOT.
I would definitely roll these over V-brakes. However I don't think they have enough power for 29ers...at least on the one 29er I rode that had them.
