Time for brakes, opinions on ECS Service Kit?

My brake light came on today, time to replace them BUT I figured what the hell and I wanna do rotors/pads all the way around instead of just the front pads. Has anyone used this "Service Kit" If so what was your experience with the pad+rotor combination they are using? or just Hawk HPS pads in general? Thanks

I see, not too worried about dust, i'd rather have stopping performance.

But I actually ended buying from R1Concepts in La Habra, I will put up a review once I have them

The ECS Geomet rotors are made in China and/or Taiwan! Much lower quality.

Wasn't too worried about that, but I just got confirmation from R1 that they manufacture in the US and I got a better deal. win win.
