NAPA Brakes?

Has anyone ever tried the NAPA premium rotors with ther metallic brake pads?
Those rotors are supposed to be powder coated on the hat of the rotor and the outside to prevent rusting. I know the R1 rotors and stop tech pads is the consensus around here. I'm just weighing my options because ill need brakes come spring time.

mine had a napa set up all around or at least that's what the dealer service dude told me...and it was loud during light application, don't know if they weren't broken in right or what but it was bad, like the pads were not a good combination to the rotors, truck had 39k when I got it and I still can't see why it had after market rotors all around, I put some napa rotors with hawk pads on the rear of my cobalt after a falure to desengage from the inside pads ate through the stockers on left and right rear and I've gone about 20k no problems...but it's a fwd so they don't work as hard as the ones from the jeep
