Default Power stop brake kit?

I've been looking at the power stop brake kit online and they look pretty good for the price but the only problem I'm having is finding any reviews on them. So I was wondering if anyone on here has gone ahead and ordered them and what you thought about them.

These are the brakes:

There's no need at all for drilled and/or slotted rotors. If you want better braking, get some good pads. Blank rotors are usually more effective.

To add to civicexracer's post, most places won't resurface drilled or slotted rotors since they tend to destroy the cutting bits on brake lathes.

There's four easy ways to improve braking though:
-better (softer) tires. The better your tires grip, the faster you can stop.
-better pads. I've heard very good things about Hawk HPS pads.
-brake bleeding
-changing brake fluid; all of it, not just the fluid in the reservoir (this would also include bleeding the brakes)*

*brake fluid is hygroscopic meaning it absorbs water; when it does, its performance degrades.
