I have used these brakes (and have a used set which I am going to sell on ebay). They are OK-better than rim brakes and quite adequate for commuting/relaxed cycling. Easy maintenace and they are CHEAP. They are not as powerful as modern disc brakes and quite heavy though (over 1kg I think for the whole set).
I upgraded to XT hydraulics when I started to ride a bit more seriously with a club.
