Hi

I'm trying to buy a rear derailleur for the first time (because I want to fit it myself) but am a little overwhelmed by the decision of what to buy - hope someone can help!

Details:
Specialised Globe (hybrd) currently with a Shimano Alivio rear derailleur and a Hyperdrive front.
My rear cassette is 8-speed

So my questions are how do I decide what would be compatible with my bike, what are my options, and does anyone have a recommendation?
I'd like to go for something a little better than the Alivio (I'm no concerned about the weight of the component, but more in terms of quality, shift-speed etc).

Thanks!
