I love my MT5s. Get them from bike parts.de. German site. Even with shipping, a fantastic deal. Get a bleed kit too. Easy to bleed. Easy to setup. Super powerful. Very easy to modulate. Don't forget to get rotors too. Also grab mount adapters for the rotor size you want versus native to the frame / fork.

If you've got mt200's anything is a great upgrade. Getting the new 4 pots is throwing money away when Merlin (slx $120 xt $158 per pair) has the old 2 Pistons at insanely low prices. Although 4 piston is cool I've never felt like I needed more brakes than the old 2 piston.

I picked up the slx's for a friend who's running on old xt hydro up front and a Hayes mechanical in the back. They work but not for anything aggressive.
