I have them and I like them. There are a lot of "haters" here who don't so you're kinda going to have to judge for yourself. One great thing about the setup is that you never have to disengage your thumb from the grips. I know that sounds like a small thing however; once you realize how much of you grip is reliant upon your thumb, you begin to understand just how nice it is to not have to use it to shift.
As for the brakes; they work well. They can be a little noisy at times but, overall, they have very good modulation, good stopping power and they seem to work well in thick mud...all pluses.
