The Tourney mechs are at the low end of the Shimano pecking order, but they do indeed work when set up right. The three bikes my wife and daughters ride have TY-30 and TY-33 Tourney groups, and they run pretty good (even the dump find I re-built).
My latest build Miyata has a Tourney front DR (only triple in the bin at the time) and after riding it for a couple of weeks I see no real need to replace it.
