Suggestions on Rotor and pads kit

I am seeing quite a few different kits on ebay, hence looking for some recommendations on a kit. Not looking something super fancy, just looking for pads with low brake dust, and rotors that have a anti rust protection layer on the rotor hat. I am having the all 4 calipers on my Boxster power coated, so looking to clean up the all brake components in one in go.

Appreciate the input!

Ebay 'Powersport' drilled rotor + ceramic pad kit for all 4 wheels ~$200. Works great and super low dust, almost nonexistent!

+986 on that kit. I have the same. No dust, no squeak and great stopping power. They look great too
