I'll admit right off the bat that I'm a Shimano "fan boi", there performance to cost ratio is the best and their ergonomics are, IMHO, much better than SRAM for shifters. Run Shimano on all my bikes, Deore, SLX and XT and have always been happy with the power they provide for the $ they cost and the ease of bleeding, but hopefully they've at least sorted the occasional, wondering bite point of previous generations that can be a little annoying if you don't keep it in mind on long descents without brakes and bumps/jumps. That being said, at the current pricing for the new Shimano 4 piston options, I'd rather spend my money on something deserving of that sort of price, like a nice set of Hopes.
