I fitted Pagid on my MG ZT 18 months ago, I fitted them because I had them on my previous car without any problems and the anti rust coating was holding well almost two years on. The discs fitted to my MG rusted within 5 months, they started warping at 7 months and only 8,000 miles, having searched around lots of other people are experiencing disc warping with Pagid now, ECP will deny any complaints because I asked, decided to replace them less than a year old, I got a set of TRW discs and pads from Micks Garage, premium brand and a decent price, these brakes are the dogs, no brake fade and smooth as silk, no excessive dust at all either.
Look around for another brand of brakes, Mintex are okay but make sure you buy originals, there are lots of fakes on the market, reputable seller will only stock the real items.

I've been using Mtec brake discs recently and they've been great. - http://www.mtecbrakes.com/

they offer a coating in black, silver or gold which stops the vents and the "hat" from rusting up. i've got the black ones and they're working fine.

TMD Friction GmbH own the brands
- Pagid
- Textar
- Mintex
They are all the same basic product, just branded for different segments.

If you want to try something completely different - go for either ATE, Jurid or Brembo.

Which is why I went for TRW, ATE were standard fitment on my car from new but I will say I am impressed with these TRW brakes.

Cheers all for the recommendations.
