Default Need to worry?

So my great new rotors show up from Powerstop today... slotted and drilled... look at the quality???
Do I worry you think? Or is this no big deal.... Anyone know? Because I've never used them, couldn't resist the price, maybe this is why.

Drilled rotors will crack whether thats there or not.
after people figured this out they went to 'dimples'
I'd link pics but with google its kinda redundant

cast iron is notoriously sucky to machine, theres soft spots, hard spots, etc.

So in short, it's not the chip around the drill hole, it's the drill hole that's the problem

Thanks all.... Waiting to see what CarId wants to do ( ie replace ) I guess I'll learn about their customer service shortly..
..
I agree it might be a future issue and I'm not slapping it on if it's just gonna end up being the equivalent of a cold sore .
.
Good thing I'm a patient man

They're all made in China, the fortune cookie says many dragon will bring good luck in future stopping... I think that was their warranty ?

I'd use OE rotors, at some point there actually was some quality control.
aftermarket stuff from china is j u n k, google aftermarket rotor problems

Worst case just chamfer it a bit with a larger drill.

My rotors rust since the cars sit alot, so after about 4 years I change em,, have had good luck with Centrix with the epoxy coatings from rock auto.

I dont get and drilled or slotted.
