I have some pretty cheap Shimano brakes on both of my commuters.  One set works really good (once I swapped the pads and rotors from the resin/resin only garbage) and the other is pretty weak.  I wouldn't choose to run the better set on a mountain bike, but they would probably work just fine in a pinch.  Point is, it's tough to figure out the performance of these things just based on price or manufacturer.  You might have some solid, low cost gems on your hands.  Or you might not. I'll try to remember to explore the Tektro/TRP relationship a bit for the review of the Trails.  It would be interesting to try to find out a bit more about what is shared, what isn't, and how it all works.
