Default EBC Brakes

Are the EBC brakes and rotors worth the cost? Just to replace the front is just over $400. I'm looking at replace the front rotors with the GD7177 and the yellowstuff pads DP41696-2R. I do some minor hauling and trailering.

I have EBC's all around with sloted & dimpled rotors & green stuff pads.
I don't tow but, my truck is running 305/35-24" wheels/tires, stops better, no brake dust.
Been on 3 year now, I like them.
Are they worth the $ ?
Would I do it again ?
Yah
Is there anything out there as good for less $ ?
I've seen post about NAPA parts that are less $, and it looks as if they (posters) think there stuff is good.

I got a complete set of Slotted/Drilled rotors, front and back, off of eBay for way less than $400. All i had to do was get my own bearings and press them in. That was 30k ago and all are doing great (although my stock calipers suck still). I am also running Hawk Brake Pads, 35x12.5R20.

i have the Hawk LTS pads and like them, for rotors i got brake performance slotted ones, so far im impressed with both, and my cost was about 430 for the whole truck front and back.
