    Shimano makes great pedals and at this price point you can't go wrong. They are working well for my trail rides.

    Pros
    Inexpensive, good release adjustability

    Cons
    Heavy

    Great pedal. Slammed a rock and broke one but at $40 a pair it's not that big of a deal.

    Pros
    Cost

    Cons
    Durability

    A durable entry level pedal at a reasonable price.

    Pros
    The PD-M520 is inexpensive yet still offers adjustable spring tension. I learned to mountain bike with these pedals so they've taken quite a beating and are still going strong.

    Cons
    Heavier than some of Shimano's other SPD pedals.

    These pedals can take a beating. I have them on both my bikes. Very durable. Shimano makes some quality pedals. Great for a beginner so your not sinking a ton of money on pedals in case you decide to go back to flats.

    Pros
    Cheap
    Great contact
    Adjustable

    Cons
    Heavier than others

    For the money, they cant be beat. Mine have been through some pretty rough stuff and still holding up nice. I will not own anything else from now on for the money.

    Pros
    Inexpensive
    Very durable

    Cons
    A bit heavier that others I have owned

    Pros
    great for beginners, adjustable, go well with spd shoes

    Cons
    a little on the heavy side for racing, mud clearance tends to be an issue if you ride in muddy conditions often.

    I have smacked these pedals on rocks, used them to climb over fallen trees digging the claws into the tree bark. I have flipped my bike endover-end down rock stairs on Cascade trail at Bear Brook and gone over the bars into a partially frozen brook slamming these pedals into the rocks and water. These are just naming a few of the ways these pedals have been abused. When ever they finally decide to quit on me I will thank them for their service and find a way to decorate my workshop with them then run right out and purchase another pair of them.

    Pros
    - They are very durable
    - Very low maintenance
    - They are not bricks
    - I have confidence in them
    - They shed mud, pine needles, and leaves very well.

    Cons
    - they do not shed snow well
    - they may be a little too heavy for the more frail :P
