Not sure these are worth while other than looking cool. I got them to help with fade thinking they'd be better than the standard rotor with BB-7's. The fade seemed about the same to me but I really had trouble with the rear making noise that I didn't have with the stock rotor. Maybe not as much contact material isn't a good thing for heavier riders? Biggest improvement I got was running a stock 180mm rotor, big improvement in power.

Pros: Hmmm, look better?

Cons: No noted performance improvement and noisier.

Stop the insanity

A great rotor for the BB7 crowd. I'm finding that this rotor lasts longer than the HS1 rotors with the BB7. Yeah, its a bit noisier but does outlast the HS1. I notice no difference in stopping performance between the G2, G3 and HS1 rotors with my BB7. For my go to rotor these are it.

Pros: Stops, wears well, cheaper than some

Cons: More expensive than some, still noisy

Rotors

Needed new rotors after bending originals

Pros: Great rotors. Worked great.. little noisy but that's avid brakes for you

Cons: $$ Rotors are spendy in my opinion. Easy to bend, but I can often get them back into usable condition.

Avid G3 Rotors

Avid made some changes to quiet down there brakes but I still get some squealing. The single piece rotor is a better deal than the two piece, and only a little heavier.

Pros: Better than previous generation Avid rotors. Maybe a bit quieter.

Cons: Still not silent like Shimano brakes.

I've used many types of avid disc brakes and all sizes of rotors. Overall these discs perform quite well. If you bend them you, usually you can bend em back.

Pros: stopping power

Cons: occasional squeal.

Will slow your fat @ss down

I am a larger than average rider, not quite a Clydesdale, but I charge hard and the G3 does just what it is supposed to do. Came stock with my Elixir CR's and I bought a replacement after 2.5 years after an unfortunate incident with a rock.

On my 2010 Enduro they can make a noise that sounds like hitting a bagpipe with a sledge-hammer, but this seems to be a function of some weird physics involving the frame/caliper/pad/rotor combo. A little tweaking solves it for several hundred miles.

Pros: (with elixir CR's, 185mm 6-bolt size)
fairly light
very little fade
big stopping power
good modulation

Cons: Finicky setup with some bikes (caliper/pad centering is CRITICAL, as is proper pad bed-in)

Avid G3 rotor

I replaced my Avid 'roundagon' rotors with these and they perform much better mainly because they are plane out of the box. They seem stiffer too which helps get some extra modulation out of BB7 brakes.

Pros: Light enough
Stiff enough
Much better than roundagons

Cons: None that I can see

Replaced standard G3 rotors with XX rotors when I got a new wheelset. I haven't noticed any difference between the two other than looks, even though there was a little disclaimer warning not to use them for real mountain biking (I'm paraphrasing). The torx screws are annoying cause it forced me to go out and buy a new tool and it doesn't feel like you really get extra torque on them. Just an annoying lawyer thing I guess.

Pros: Alloy spider looks cooler than standard rotors.

Cons: Torx screws make you buy more tools/carry more for trail repairs.

Nice improvement on squeal compared to prior generation. Also seems to be less prone to warpage. I actually downsized the rear from 203 to 185mm for improved modulation... first ride break-in was Downieville and it worked great!
