Default Autozone duralast calipers vs oem?

Cheapest oem calipers new I've found are 270 a piece, autozone has dura last calipers for about 100 each, just wondering if anyone's bought them, I hate buying non oem parts but I'm on a really tight budget and need to get this done.. Would brakin performance be any worse do you think vs oem or about the same?

I have a durlast starter and duralst brake pads. Both seem to be good quality as I have no complaints. I know this is about calipers, but hopefully this helps a little.

Rock auto is what everyone says to go to but so many brands of calipers anyone bought from them and if so what brand and how'd they do? Thank you

I don't know if it is the best, but I needed a caliper quick for my wifes GS350 and bought a Cardone as it was all available at the time. Has been great 8 months into it.

I bought it locally from Bap Geon and not Rockauto. I saw Rock carried it though.

Had awful luck with the AC Delco ones about 3 years ago. They both rusted severely and seized...one in less than 1.5 years if I remember correctly.

I have Cardone LS400 calipers... so far so good, I'd recommend them.
