    I installed this as part of a 1x10 setup on a new build. Frankly when I saw this derailleur, the SLX shifter set on sale and the SLX cranks for $89, I knew I had my next drivetrain lined up.
    To review this RD specifically, all I can say is "typical Shimano quality". Shifts crisply and positively, reasonable weight, and generally durable, although I have not had it long. I'd say the best part is how quickly and easily it sets up. Mount it, tension cable slightly, and adjust. It's fairly typical for Shimano but still impresses me.
    I used the mid cage length, 32T front with a 11-36 cassette, very happy with this arrangement.
    I gave the product four out of five stars only because it's not the newer clutch design. It is still an excellent choice for upgrade or new build, especially considering the price.

    It was installed by LBS but it would not work correctly. The pulleys were too close to the cassette.

      Comments about Shimano XT M780 Rear Derailleur OE:

      Works great on my 1x10 especially with the clutch system! Prevents chain slap, keeps the chain on without a chain guide, and is a set it and forget it kind of deal! Only thing "better" is XTR.. just a little bit lighter, but hey, who needs that?

        Upgraded form 3x9 to 1x10. Love the new derailluer. Should have replaced the old set up much sooner.

                Comments about Shimano XT M780 Rear Derailleur OE:

                I've been an XT fan for years, because they have lasted me years of heavy abuse. I hear the SRAM derailleurs may shift smoother, but when durability is more important to me than marginal functional improvements and potentially lighter weight. Although this derailleur came out of box, it arrived "in box" condition. For the price, couldn't get better.

                  I use it for cross-country and all mountain riding. I set the derailleur up in about 15 minutes! It shifts faster than any other product I've had on my bike and shifts smooth, no matter the conditions. I would highly recommend this product to everyone.

                  After smashing my XT derailleur about a dozen times it finally succumbed to a branch that got wedged in the rear wheel. I bought a new one on Jenson for a great price, installed it in less than 5 minutes and am now riding and smashing into rocks again. Great piece of equipment, like all of Shimano's stuff.
