Ordered sum brake pads online and had to return them to the store because they were incorrect. Apperantly there are two different kinds for a 2000 camry. Was not indicated on web site. Long story short, pointless buying online since I had to go to the store counter anyways. If not for that, 5 stars.

Replacing my old pads with these took an hour tops and within a few pumps of the brakes as the caliper resets to the new pads you feel the difference. Braking power is great and once you log some miles you will really absorb that you should have replaced your brakes earlier. These are great replacements and when you compare them to other lower priced models, these are worth the $10 or $20 more.
Although this packaging does not include the brake hardware like the pins and metal pieces, if you want to replace those along with the pads at the same time.
 Pepboys.com can be glitchy at times. I refer to youtube when PB.com doesn't have a video that I'm looking for.

First time ordering online from Pep Boys w/the added bonus of receiving an online discount & the pads were available the next day. Greatly appreciated the email that my parts were ready for pick-up. Made a return trip to purchase the rotors as well; forgot them. LOL

I chose these brakes to replace the sub-standard parts that the "guys with the golden touch" put on my vehicle. When I saw the new parts in the box I could tell immediately they were made better. The ProStop Platinum brake parts seemed heavier due to more dense brake materials/metals. After driving for 1,000 miles I can say my car's brake system performs like new. I paid a mechanic for the installation and I still saved money on the entire job.
 sometimes the website has technical problems
 the product was exactly what was described
 the quality and value are outstanding
 I will use these on all my cars and tell all my my friends
Pros Price, Dependability, quality, installation/break-in instructions
Cons Warranty
Yes, I recommend this product.

Quiet with great stopping power and feel. I did the front and rear brakes a week apart .NOTE- I feel the pads should include the other brake hardware as a whole kit not separate. Meaning the aluminum metal clips. I know some people dont change these with the pads but I feel it makes a difference in keeping the brakes quiet. You have to buy them separate at this point.

A fair product, but you MUST follow product recommendations i.e. break in period.
Unlike OEM brake pads, these may not stop your vehicle in the distances you are familiar with until after the break in period. After the break in period you should be fine and good to go, or stop.
 Enjoy the savings from on-line purchases.

Bought these pads on 7/7/12 since I also needed new rotors and Pep Boys had rotors in stock. I installed pads on same day along with new rotors. From the start, I was concerned about wear because pads created excessive (black) dust in first few days on car although they did stop car very well. My concern was well founded since about eleven thousand (11,000) miles later front pads about worn out, less than a 1/16 inch to squeal/squeak clip. Replaced front pads again on 7/23/13 with brand I formerly used (competitor auto parts store) and no more issues with dust at all.
Could have been be mfg defect but I won't take the chance and buys these again and waste my time installing pads again nor recommend same to another person. My car has 144K miles on it and, in primarily city driving, has always gone about 35-40,000 miles on a set of front brake pads.
