Has anyone ever used Alligator brake pads?

I'm looking for some new brake pads for me mech. disc brakes and saw some very cheap Alligators. Has anyone here ever used them before? To be specific semi-metallic pads to fit Shimano M-465's.

I just picked up some front and rear alligator pads from pricepoint. They work fine, I currently run bb7 mechs. No probs - easy install.

Never used the pads, but just picked up one of their rotors and I'm very happy with it.
