Brake Rotors?

I need new brake rotors for my truck and i was wondering if it is worth it to upgrade to drilled and slotted rotors vs stock?

If you can find some slotted, but not drilled. Thats would I would use.

Previous experience with no names brands = stress cracks at the drilled spots and excessive rusting of the whole disc.
