Brake Rotors-Power Stop, any good?

Considering purchasing these rotors, anybody have them and decent? One review said expect more noise.

While I don't have them on a third gen Mazda6 I do have cross-drilled rotors on the 240z that are clamped with 2-pot calipers. They are silent when in motion but do make a whirring/buzzing noise when braking. It sounds like the noise made by an electrical transformer (subtle buzzing) that drops in pitch as the car slows. Its loud enough to be heard over the inline-6 with headers and a muffler but not overpowering.
Hope it helps.


EDIT: They have been installed for 15+ years and still are great. I did bed them in when new and for years I tortured my poor tires with them. That car does only weigh 2400lbs with full cage and chassis bars.

I don't have these on the 6 but I do have a set on my truck. They are and have been excellent. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them.

Regarding the sound, it's usually dictated more by the pads than the rotors
.
The softer the pad the less sound, the harder (think longer lasting) the pads the more sound generated.

Yes, they are great.
And you can do even better at Rockauto.com - they sell a nice (rotor+pad) kit for $130.

You can also try Stoptech:
Stoptech slotted rotors.
126.45084SL
126.45084SR

Find them on raceconsultingagency.com for $90ea.

These have been excellent. Stock rotors are absolute garbage. Had them turned 2x in 40k miles. I'm at 83k now... Stoptech have been awesome for 43k miles.

I've used the Power Stop Z23 (pads + drilled and slotted rotors) from rockauto and they have been fantastic for 40k miles so far!
