Tektro vs Deore V-brakes

I put a suspension fork on my old bike, so I have to put a v-brake on to replace the cantilever brake. I've got a Deore v-brake extra. Should I swap that out with one of the Tektro's on my primary bike or just put it on the old bike?

Basically, what's better: Tektro or Deore v-brakes?

Never heard of Tektro so can't comment, but the Deore V is not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Theyre about the same. I'd go for whatever's cheaper/easier.

Thanks. That's what I thought. They look about the same anyways. I'll probably put the Deore on my main bike to see if I notice a difference.
