Let me just use this abbreviation N.F.F., don't want anything electronic on a bike, especially MTB. No personal use experience on any of it, but going from clients experience and a friend, yeah, no thanks. If you're in the US or major country with authorised SRAM dealers close by, then no worries, but if you live anywhere else, then you're fvcked if, like my friend, your $600 derailleur just up and dies. Or my other friend who's shifter mysteriously eats button batteries, so that now he removes the battery after every ride. That $hit is WAY too expensive, when I can get a perfectly function 12spd SLX or even XT group for what or less than what the rear derailleur cost and if the cable breaks on the trail, heaven forbid, I can simply set the limit screws to put it into a useable gear and when stuff fails out here in the real world, I don't feel bad about replacing with same quality for a fraction of the cost.
