Strengths:    Cheap
Good value
Better than even cheaper deraillers

Weaknesses:    Not durable
Wont shift under pressure

Bottom Line:   
This derailer is completely garbage. It came stock on my Giant OCR 1 and completely snapped off (broke) within 1 year of heavy riding. I now have a new Specialized Allez Comp that comes stock with it, it has not broken yet but the shifting is not the best. With the slightest tension on the chain you cannot shift into the smallest chainring. I have a 1 year old Ultegra derailler on my giant now and it shifts beautifully, under all conditions. Get Ultegra or Dura-ace. I plan on swapping on my specialized soon.
