Default Accel Coils??

I was in Jegs website today and I came across an ignition coil made for GM engines made by Accel. I in my jouney to mod the hell out of my car am also interested in better coils. Has anyone had any experience with this brand of coil?

Accel'* GM DIS Coils are CRAP!
The last about two years (if that) due to they can't handle the heat & burn out or just short out.
