    They are pretty good but don't modulate as well as my XT's. They are quite powerful though. If you need cheap brakes they are a good choice.

    I have the old Deore and the newer M775 brakes, as well as old XTR. At first I didn't like the M775 sloppy feel of the servo levers compared to the instant death grip on the deore/xtr. Once I got used to it after a few rides I really like the M775 more now. The lever doesn't feel as firm as deore/xtr but the actuation is much more linear. All work great though.

    Wiggle.co.uk just this week was selling pre-bled M775 brakesets complete with 180mm rotors and hardware for crazy prices that included free shipping to the USA. Sold out now though. I thought it odd that Wiggle never showed up on the price-search engines I use. Seems that UK prices can be very competitive once VAT is removed. The USD vs BP exchange rate seems to have taken a slide too making prices higher by the day recently.

    I've got these on my rigid 650B SS. First hydros I've used so nothing similar to compare to, except the Avid BBDBs they replaced. The M595s are smoother, of course, and stronger than the mechs. Got them for about the same price I bought the Avids 5 years before.
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
