They're good, somewhere between Deore and XT.

Since it is a "Shadow" RD, the cable routing will work best if it comes from above via the seatstay, as opposed to the chainstay. If your bike routes the cable along the chainstay, you may want to find an RD that's not a Shadow design. (Either work though.)
