Deore LX Mega 9s?

The 9s LX Mega line, as far as I can tell, is not being made anymore, and came OEM on some of the older Rockhoppers. I got ahold of an older Rockhopper, but it needs a new right hand Mega-9 shifter. The left is still in perfect shape.

I am wondering whether or not these are decent shifters compared to the newer standard integrated brake/shifter Deore 530's out there now. In comparison, is it worth just picking up and old Mega for replacement, or would it be a better idea to just get a new set of Deore integrated shifters and replace both sides?

What would be an equivalent modern replacement for the old Megas?

Just thought I'd get your opinion.

I've never cared for the integrated stuff. I run LX shifters on my bike w/ an XT derailleur, and so far 2 years, no complaints at all...
