Cool What Is your take on ATE (power disc) rotors?

It that time of know time to change the brakes and rotors. Just wondering what you guys think of ATE "power disc" rotors. Are they any good? Are there any downsides? What is the best matchup for them as far as brake pads go? If I opt on getting them.
Thanks for your help!

I'm running them on my E320 and can't tell any difference between them and stock. Have only had them on there for about 6k miles so can't say if there is any effect on pad wear.

Ditto engatwork, though I've run them up to about 10k miles with no problems nor increased pad wear. They work fine. However, don't expect them to handle track use-I destroyed 2 sets on my 500E that way

Currently running them with ATE pads.
4k miles, no noticeable difference, but no problems either.
Will be monitoring lifespan, but they are fairly inexpensive (just $5 more than solid), so I'm not particularly concerned.
