Brakes Pads and Rotors

I'm getting due for a complete brake job and thinking of doing it myself.
Does anyone have any experience or comments on Power Stop Z23 kits? They are drilled and slotted rotors and fiber/carbon ceramic pads. Can get complete kits for front and back for $500. Seems like pretty good price.

You live in a cooler climate. Do you drive your car in the winter? Ceramic pads don't reach their full braking effectiveness until they've warmed up. So in cold weather, your brakes may have less bite early in your drive.

Thanks for the info. Good to know.
I store the car in winter but do drive it when temps get in 40s.
Ordered front set and with discounts etc got price down to less than $240.
