Talking Nissin 19x21 M/C or Brembo 19x20

Hi guys.
I'm thinking on buying a M/C for my ZX10R and I'm options are the Nissin 19x21 or the Brembos 19x20.
The Nissin's are cheaper and have reservoir, stop switch...everything I need to do a direct install.
The Brembos are more expensive almost 90$ more.
My use is basically for the road, might 2 or 3 track days a year, but I do alot of hard riding on the mountains roads at the weekends.
Any advice on my choice?
I've been told that Brembo's 19x18 are an excellent choice but they are way to expensive when compared with the other two.
Any thoughts you wanna share...will be .

Thanks you guys.
Here is some more info about prices:

-M/C Nissin 19x21 ready to install(lever,reservoir, switch stop, adapter line)=235$

-M/C Brembo 19x20 (lever,switch stop)=339$
have to buy reservoir and adapter extra (no idea about cost for these extras)

-M/C Brembo 19x18 (lever,switch stop)=370$
have to buy reservoir and adapter extra (no idea about cost for these extras)

These are all ebay prices.

I have a shop near my area that will sell the Brembo's 19x18 ready to install, just have to take my bike and they do all the job, but the cost is almost 500$.

I really would like to hear of someone that has tryied the Nissin's and the Brembo's as well and can give an comparison.
As you see the differences in price are huge, are the the differences in the quality of the braking that huge to justify the price?

P.S.:"Just found on the web an U.S. company that sell Nissin's 19x18, gonna try and found out shipping costs to Europe, anyone has tryied this puppies?"

I have seen a few places that sell the brembo for $250 (still no reservoir or brake switch) but that would equal out the extra $$ difference. I would imagine either one would be excellent for track days and overkill for the street

If you want the best though get the AP Racing MC. CP4125 or CP6125. its about $550 but much better feel and action then the Brembo or Nissin. Also its the only Pull Type MC made because AP has that patent. Here's the link and read about it.

Thanks for the info on the AP's range.
I had a look and they seem awesome, but its to much money for my pocket at this moment.
Thanks anyway.
