Default Eicher discs ???

Hi all, looking to order new brakes for the bus tonight. In my ideal world every part would come in a box with a brand name on the front but in my world this is not always possible.
Looking on eBay there are Eicher discs priced at 28 each. I was going to install these with a set of Mintex pads.
Do you think this would give me satifactory braking performance or should I shell out the extra and get Mintex/Pagid disc and pads ?
With a few essential repairs due before the MOT I was trying to keep costs down a bit.
Thanks in advance

I think ATE discs get good reviews .Used them on my last car with Pagid pads and the car stopped very well in all weather

Have you checked genuine stuff with forum discounts available? The likes of FRF?

Without getting into arguements about genuine vs aftermarket post #31 was quite interesting.
